Care to look like Kate Middleton after giving birth just 12 weeks ago? We know, we know … we can’t all look like Kate, but here are some of the top-of-the-line health clubs and fitness offerings around London to try for your best personal results.
Founder Niki Rein honed her skills under Tracy Anderson and has pioneered with her ballet-fitness studio and classes in London. Long, lean, and toned is the end goal, and well, who can’t get behind that?
One of the fastest-growing boutique studios to hit the capital, their Reformer Pilates are second-to-none, but it’s the Cardiolates that really sets the tone. Half-spin/half-Pilates, it’s the ultimate full-body workout.
Once described as being “to fitness what Gordon Ramsay is to food,” Matt Roberts is certainly not known for laissez-faire workouts. Trainer to both the prime minister and the First Lady—David and Samantha Cameron—as well as a marathon’s length of A-listers, it’s no surprise his branded studios are cropping up all over London.
58 South Molton Street was created by psychotherapist Noam Sagi and marketing expert Michal Cohen-Sagi with an aim to bring well-being excellence and business know-how under one roof. And one of the stars under that roof is osteopath Amberin (like Tambourine) Fur. Amberin was on the medical team for the 2012 Olympics and has both healing hands and a healing manner. Her Blueprint sculpt-method couples osteopathy and cranial work remain mindful of the client’s emotional core. It’s true health-and-healing from the inside out.
It’s no secret that Deborah Mitchell is in fact the Duchess of Cambridge’s and the Duchess of Cornwall’s facialist. She pioneered the Bee Venom facial, so you’ll leave her cosseting hands feeling plumped and perfected. She’s also launched an at-home range, for keeping yourself topped-up between visits.
Price: £55 (course of five: £250).
There are few things more comforting and revitalizing than a good foot-and-hand massage. First, you’ll find your hands floating in a warm infusion of orange, clove, juniper berry, and cinnamon, which together help exfoliate, brighten, and detoxify, before being rubbed with clove oil and wrapped in hot paraffin, and then having your nails painted with Ciaté enamel.
Ninety-minute pedicure: £80; seventy-minute manicure: £75.
Any beauty enthusiast knows it’s not just the face but the whole body that we need to pay attention to. The Dorchester Spa on London’s fashionable Park Lane has launched the Nuturing Cocoon, an all-over body treatment that will leave your skin taught and restored.
Owned by Nick Balfour, Prince Charles’s cousin, the just-out-of-its-plastic-packaging new Mermaid Maternity Retreat, on the King’s Road, offers absolutely everything a soon-to-be or new mum hasn’t yet even thought of needing, and then some. The QMS! Medicosmetics Facial is our top pick.
There’s likely not a celebrity on Hollywood’s A-list that Charlotte hasn’t dabbed with foundation and brushed with blush, so it was only a matter of time before she took her years of industry experience and packaged them into shiny little boxes of her own. And, ta-da, in September she launched her 100-piece skin-care-and-makeup line with an elegant pop-up boutique at Selfridges.
Although Benefit needs no introduction, their brand-new full-service boutique, on Carnaby Street, just might. Offering a range of treatments and packages alongside, of course, their candy-shop-style mélange of makeup and beauty products, it’s like a beauty department store. The Tonight’s the Night Package includes a volumizing blowout, a makeup session, and a Vinylux manicure. Perfect, say, for a date night with a certain popular prince?
