I absolutely LOVE urban kings and I am so proud and happy to be a part of it! This is the best gym if you want to get very good at your sport (or just exercising in general). Everyone is very welcoming and all coaches are super professional and friendly!!

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.

The MMA gym where it is pointless to lose your mind when you can find in the changing rooms your new iPhone simply because a some one handed it to reception. Huge thank you

Urban Kings Gym is a high end focussed gym that specialises in several martial arts, boxing, pilates, spin, kettlebells and conditioning classes.The instructors are all first rate and highly qualified professionals who pretty much know everything there is to know about fitness.The gym is a tardis! The basement houses a weights area, boxing ring, a huge area for classes. Amazingly friendly and results oriented, whether you are looking to start the gym for the first time or an advanced professional, you'll achieve great results here. They've kept me going for years!

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.

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.

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.

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 welcoming

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.

There are no robots at Urban Kings, the coaches all have their own way of doing things, they clearly love what they do, you will grow and progress. Its an effective mix of experts that inspire.The place is very clean and the thoughtful management can be seen in small changes and tweaks to the running of the gym every week.The staff are on it and are pretty friendly too.Its a wee bit more expensive than other places but you can see where your money goes.Its become part of my life.
