This Is What It Looks Like Inside an Exclusive Models-Only Gym
Boxing enthusiast Gigi Hadid may be one of our favourites when we need a dose of supermodel fitspiration, but right here in London there's an entire gym devoted to women who don't ever seem to take an awkward gym selfie. Trainer Russell Bateman's exclusive gym, the Skinny Bitch Collective, is rising as the hottest workout among models and celebrities like Edie Campbell, Ellie Goulding, and Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter's Ginny Weasley). The private gym began two and a half years ago and has lured people from around the world to participate in its invite-only classes that are ever-changing, fast-paced, and energy-packed — a class typically features a ton of squatting, crawling, and jumping as you'll see in the videos ahead.
Although Russell also trains men, SBC is all about girl-squad fitness. "Female wellness is far more important to me, as I believe there's way too much crap out there that women are fed about how to train and eat right," Russell told The New York Post. The women in the videos work their bums off to bass-bumping music, and we have to admit, it looks like a blast. Invite or not, the high-intensity workouts and the camaraderie amongst members are easy to appreciate, even if your own private gym is just a corner in your living room.
