What is it?


Founded by Ashley Verma, a former Broadway performer turned trainer, Define London aims to challenge conceptions of traditional barre. Using an intense mix of isometric moves whilst incorporating cardio infused sequences, their unique range of classes are designed to get the heart rate up and get you moving.

What's the studio like?

Read Instagrammable. As soon as you walk through the doors of this studio you are greeted by a wall of flowers, a sparkling chandelier, two luxe studios and beautiful changing rooms filled with The White Company products, you'd never know you were minutes from Oxford Street.

Which classes should I try?

Designed for every fitness level, Define has a class for everyone from newbies to the ultimate barre addict. You'll find everything from three levels of classic barre, to pure mat classes, dance cardio, a run club and our personal favourite Define Balance, where exercises are performed on a Bosu Ball™. Classes flow easily from exercise to exercise, with isometric holds, stretches and weights included, with all ability levels catered for throughout.

What are the benefits?

Where do we start? Improved posture, muscle definition, weight loss, increased flexibility and reduced stress. Plus, if you're on the hunt for a peachy bum, you can bet your ass the classes here work your glutes.

Why we love it?

In two words, the instructors. Lead by Ashley there is a real focus on fun and keeping you going, despite the burn you'll leave on an endorphin high.

How do I get involved?

Define London is located minutes from Oxford Street at 82 Great Portland Street. Fancy trying a class join us at our exclusive pop-up on Saturday 16 June for workouts, protein shakes, healthy treats and goody bags.
