This centrally located gym has a running track, weight training equipment, cross trainers, balance bars, and much more. You can also hire a tennis court or multisport pitch for an hourly fee. There is no subscription due, you don’t have any paperwork to fill in, and you needn’t feel guilty if you haven’t used your membership for a week or so. It has the added benefit of fresh air.
Because it’s more than a gym, it’s a park.
Kilburn Grange Park, just off the Kilburn High Road is my favourite park for getting fit. It also has two well-equipped children’s playgrounds.
After your workout, sit quietly in the rose garden. If you stay perfectly still, a fieldmouse will climb up one of the lavender stalks to say hello – there are lots of them in amongst the herbs and flowers.
