World-class athletes lead unusual classes at independent London gym.

The Factory Dance and Fitness Centre

World-class athletes and acrobatic dancers are among those leading incredible classes at an independent London gym.

The Factory, a gym in Archway offering a range of workouts from traditional weights to dance, is among those championing ‘pole’ as a brilliant fitness method. As well as running regular classes – a range of talented athletes lead one-off workshops there.

They include Allegra Bird who founded the renowned Pole Art France competition (next workshop 15th June), Dan Rosen (12 UK Championship titles and 1 international title) and Shane Godliman (Best Entertainer - Mr Pole Fitness - next workshop 5th May).
