I was recently able to spend six weeks in London, and I made Urban Kings my second home during that time. Training several times a day gave me the opportunity to really form an impression of the top-notch facility, the instructors, and the management and staff.I cannot say enough good things about this gym. They have adapted professionally to the challenges of the COVID world and were very enthusiastic about members' safety. Despite the handicaps that the pandemic has caused, the instructors at Urban Kings (I'm looking at you, Josh and Mariusz and Cherrelle), were able to find ways to train us effectively and provide personal attention without ever violating the standards of safety that have become so important.Their facility is absolutely high-class, with top end equipment and an incredible suite of weights, self-propelled treadmills, a Rogue Echo Bike (my favorite variant on the Airdyne), and of course their boxing ring and bag space. They offer a variety of fitness classes, but make no mistake - Urban Kings is, at its heart, a fight gym. The classes are technically challenging and physically demanding, but the instructors are quite happy to meet you where you are -- and help you evolve.I'm really going to miss you guys.read more

Since joining Urban Kings I can wholeheartedly say I’ve found a home to hone my skills, build a strong foundation and grow as an athlete and even a person - the community and diversity within the gym is unique and refreshing. Since I first walked through the doors I was met with warmth and encouragement. So far I’ve met Luis, Maruisz, Cherrelle, Veronique, Carmen, Shaheena Bombril, Jurgen, Ealia, Josh, Yuseff and Sammy.And this isn’t even all of the staff I have to look forward to.Most importantly for me though, I have felt a level of understanding, experience and expertise surrounding the gym. I feel in such good hands that will take me beyond my current capabilities and revealed my true potential. I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.read more

It's a great MMA gym in the heart of the city. Just a hop away from Kings Cross station, the front of house staff always provide a warm and friendly reception. It is focussed on fighting so whether you want Boxing training, Muai Thai skills or BJJ capabilities it is an amazing resource. Top class trainers (some with current championship belts) take you from the beginning steps to advanced techniques. There are cycles, weights (free and machines) and other equipment to support your preferred training regime. If Yoga or Pilates are more your speed they are available too. The changing facilities are well kitted out, and the sauna can be welcome relief for tired muscles. Check it out.read more

I've been coming to Urban Kings for a while now and like many other it's become my second home. I originally came just to learn muay thai and get fit but stayed because of the excellent location, extensive timetable, and friendly people I've met on my martial arts journey.

Absolutely awesome gym! If you're like me and looking to get involved in a range of different aspects of fitness taught by top class coaches then you're in for a treat. Cherrelle breaks down the fundamentals of boxing so simply that it even didn't take me too long to get the hang of it. Svetlana takes an awesome kettlebell class that will make you hurt in places you didn't know existed. And Domenico will make sure your form is spot on as you try and move like a beast in the animal flow sessions. There's so many different areas of expertise available and you are challenged to progress in every session, love this place! Front of house staff make you feel super comfortable and it really feels like a community inside the gym. Couldn't recommend more highly.read more

Welcoming front-of-house staff, friendly coaches (and other members!), great selection of classes and gym equipment. I was initially intimidated to be joining a MMA gym, but my experience to date has been excellent and I'm really enjoying learning new disciplines - including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Everyone has been very supportive of my learning as a beginner. There is a 'no booking' system for the classes; as well as BJJ, I have so far attended conditioning, yoga, pilates and spin classes, all of which never seem to be overbooked (unlike other gyms I have been to in the past).The facilities are always clean (or being cleaned!) and tidy, and the changing rooms are well appointed.read more

I cannot express enough praise for this gym. From the moment I stepped in and met Luis, I just got a feeling that this might be the gym for me. Now, I'm not a gym guy. Not one bit, but this place is different, and it's because there is no air of ego at all. I have never felt more welcome, from the staff on the reception, to the teachers, and all my fellow students. Everyone is there to learn something they've fallen in love with, and they want you to be part of that too. In my short time with the gym I've done boxing, Yoga, Brazillian Jui Jitsui, Conditioning, and am going to Muay Thai next week. Every class was daunting, but my nerves were quickly set at ease by the professional and friendly manner in which the classes are conducted. Don't get me wrong here, they don't let you go easy, but that's half the fun.I've found new confidence in myself, and realised that maybe I can do this whole fitness thing, and that's thanks to Urban Kings. I'd recommend anybody with reservations or nerves about joining a fighting gym to go down and take a look. It has changed my perception on a lot of things, most importantly, myself.read more

This has been one of my best experiences at a martial arts gym to date. The coaches are all quality, the staff very friendly, the facilities clean and plentiful. The timetable has a huge variety of times which is the biggest plus for me. I started about a year ago now and due to leaving London I have to cancel my membership which is gutting. Of all the gyms in london i've tried this has been the best and most welcomingread more

Excellent gym! Enjoy the classes, trainers, and the free weight area. A bit on the expensive side, but worth it if you can market the time to attend frequently.
