Hello, I’m Wayne Finn,
the owner of Drakes Gym in London and creator of Drakes Method fitness programme. Based on your health and the lifestyle you want to achieve, we create a personalised training and nutrition plan to help you become fitter, stronger and more confident.

"fitness is a lot more than just shedding a few pounds"

As someone who is in their fifties, I understand that fitness is a lot more than just shedding a few pounds. It’s about being healthy enough to attend work functions, feeling good when you look in the mirror and feeling energised. And it’s also about slowing the signs of ageing.

If you do not have enough energy to participate in outdoor activities or sit at your desk without back pain, Drakes Gym is the place for you. You will receive a bespoke nutrition plan and workout routine from our personal trainers. This routine will target areas to help you achieve your ideal body.

Our approach:

Drakes Method Fitness Programme

Four key pillars. Total body results.

Personal Training

You are not a number. You’re a unique person, with unique goals. It doesn’t matter if your plan is to build muscle, gain endurance or just feel more youthful. We’re here to support you.

Our personal trainers will work with you. They’ll establish your goals, your level of fitness and health. And then they will create a tailored plan to tackle your needs. If you have any health issues or physical injuries, they can accommodate this into your bespoke routine.

Reformer Pilates

Reformer Pilates is our secret weapon. The Reformer is a specially-designed exercise bed on which Pilates movements are performed with resistance.  As a gym for busy professionals, we know you’re short on time. Reformer training is a more dynamic version of Pilates that maximises your effort per session.

You’ll build muscle and strength faster with Reformer Pilates for powerful results when combined with PT and nutrition.

Now we have 2 Pilates studios at Drakes Gym equipped with the most modern machines.

Body Scan

We check your exact body composition with our medical-grade InBody machine. This is vital in understanding your health and weight. It deconstructs your body into four sections, including water, minerals, fat and mass. This data can then be used to personalise your experience at Drakes Gym and shows which areas you need to target. This analysis is carried out regularly to track your progress.

Nutritional Guidance

All those calorie dense lunches at work meetings. That cheeky second glass of wine in the evening. Or even overeating healthy foods. We know the pitfalls. We will help you break your bad eating habits to improve the way you feel, look and perform.

Based on your health and the lifestyle you want to achieve, we create a personalised nutrition plan. This will help you to learn and maintain a simpler, healthier lifestyle that lasts a lifetime.

Don't take our word for it. Here's what our clients have to say:

I came to Drakes at a time when I was feeling completely unfit and unhealthy and was looking to lose weight, I worked out with Wayne and Bea on a daily basis straight. I was amazed by the attentiongiven to me by Wayne who was training me with a bespoke program, and Bea who gave me Reformer Pilates classes every other morning. This is an amazing gym with amazing attention, and great outcomes.

Drakes Gym was recommended to me by a friend. What a transformation! I have been seeing my trainers for about 6 months. My back feels as good as new and because of Reformer Pilates I feel it also has toned my whole body muscle. My flexibility has also improved drastically which I have noticed playing sport skiing  tennis and golf.

Just love this place. It’s small, intimate, not like those chain gyms and all the team are friendly. I have to say, it’s the only time I have ever made it to the gym in the mornings early and enjoyed it! Not only that, it’s not the easiest place for me to get to, from home or work, but the work outs make it worth the effort. Bea is great, she’s tough on me, but also understands those days, when a bit more coffee is needed before going hardcore! I would recommend Drakes to anybody and only wish I’d known about it earlier.
