Training for Life

Premium lifestyle club experience serving London's fitness savvy, fashion conscious consumer.   

Third Space: Training for Life : In our glorious maddening city, your work out can define your day.

 

These are London’s luxury health clubs; individual in style and bound by a common philosophy - to provide outstanding fitness spaces that members feel are their own.

 

The company operates 6 upscale, full-service clubs in central London, with a pipeline of new locations under development. The clubs all offer signature fitness programs such as Afterburner, Sweat X, Formula 3 and Just Ride. In addition to strength and cardio training the clubs offer personal training, spa and wellness products, apparel and nutrition through its wholly owned Natural Fitness Food brand.

 

Globally the trend towards health and wellness is well documented with research suggesting there are approximately 10 million health and fitness club members in the UK. 

Starting its first site in Canary Wharf Encore has grown the Third Space portfolio to six clubs, fulfilling the ambition of creating a truly premium lifestyle club experience, serving London’s fitness savvy, fashion conscious consumer. 

Encore built out the senior management team, led by Colin Waggett as CEO (Fitness First, Psycle). Working closely with Colin and his team, Encore has helped shape the Third Space brand, proposition and design for the club format that is constantly setting new standards in the growing health and wellness industry. New club openings scheduled in 2020 and beyond all bear the hallmarks of this thinking.

 

Third Space continues to pioneer new experiences in health and fitness, uncompromising in its focus to members.
