The new fitness studio everyone in London is talking about has got to be Frame in Shoreditch. Their ethos is that getting fit shouldn’t be a chore and that, done in the right way, it can actually be enjoyable. Classes to put a smile on your face include Bend It Like Barbie, the Jane Fonda workout, Commercial HipHop and Funk the Buddha workshop - a fusion of yoga and live DJ collaborations, this is a hip holistic workout. Inspired by cult American workouts such as Bar Method and Phsique 57, the Frame signature classes – Frame Method, Frame Barre and Frame Work – encompass the best bits of pilates, yoga and general fitness. As such, they use weights, a pilates ball, a yoga strap and the barre, as well as a special cushion that Frame have developed themselves which supports the lumber (lower) spine so the lower abs can really be worked, resulting in a flatter stomach.
Similar to Hudson’s Freedom of Movement Collection with 360 stretch, Frame is offering up a 360 workout you will actually want to do! Anything that makes fitness fun and gets results has got to be a winner!

The Frieze art fair, arguably one of London’s biggest cultural fairs, took place again this month. Taking place in Regent’s Park the contemporary arts fair sees over 60,000 visitors making the cultural pilgrimage to discover the latest in the art world. The fair, started in 2003 by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, founders of Frieze magazine, showcases artists and galleries.
This year 171 major galleries from 33 countries took part, such special projects such as Frieze Film and Frieze Talks offered more participatory and interactive experiences and eight artists were commissioned to create site-specific works, including LuckyPDF (see below).
Co-directors Sharp and Slotover explained “this year we’re excited to be working with architects Carmody Groarke, who have proposed an intelligent redesign of the fair. The geographical diversity of the gallery list attests to the art world’s increasing globalisation, offering the opportunity to make discoveries as well as see work by some of the most significant artists working today.”
Here, a selection of exciting works shown at Frieze.
