Small group Exercise classes in hackney

Gymbia offers a ecliptic range of small group classes with a strong focus on meaningful progression, intelligent programming, bespoke exercise tuition & education.

Our small groups are taught by expert coaches who customise & adapt each class on an individualised basis & seek to make each session fun, meaningful & empowering.

We use an integrated holistic approach at Gymbia with classes covering cardiovascular & strength training, postural correction, body development, combat, meditation & yoga with each class planned for optimum results.

We ensure that the groups are small enough to allow each person to thrive, but large enough to create a motivating community driven atmosphere.

You have a direct line to work with your accountability coach on a regular basis who will support & guide you through your journey - Our job is to teach, motivate & inspire you to get the very best out of your experience with us while giving that extra push when you need it.

As we are not a gym we take a large step away from the usual offering of HIIT, Body pump & Boxercise classes found in most fitness studios & gyms instead offering a unique & specialised experience in an intimate environment.

Our signature small group classes are instructed by experts in their respective fields in functional exercise, rehabilitation, movement & combat training.

BJJ is a beautiful, but formidable martial art, that originated in Rio de Janeiro, but has spread to global fame, largely in part to its success in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Unlike a lot of traditional arts, it is something that can work in a real life confrontation, should you ever be faced with a predicament that requires you to protect yourself physically.

Whilst this is something we all wish to avoid, it is always better to know how to look after yourself and never tap into the skill set, than be in a situation wishing you knew how to protect yourself without having the ability.

With that said, learning the art will massively increase your confidence not only in terms of self preservation, but in all aspects of your life. It provides a great social environment, as the camaraderie experience amongst you and your training partners is unlike a bond you will experience elsewhere.

So we invite you to come along for a roll and discover this beautiful art and more about yourself :)

Synergistic Striking will give you the ultimate confidence to protect yourself in a given situation in a class that provides the right atmosphere in which to learn these practical & fun skills in various techniques disciplines of combat.


In the world of combat sports, it is often said “your best move is conditioning”. Never a truer word was spoken!

The Warrior Workout will provide you with a fantastic cardiovascular workout giving you confidence in your ability & fitness to sustain the pace and outwork your opponent when times get tough.

This class will not only sharpen you physically, but also mentally, with visualisation drills being an equal part of the class focus.
