KXU is a boutique wellness hub based in Stiff + Trevillion's 131 Sloane Street development.
The exercise space is the basement of George House and opens onto the Pavilion Road courtyard.
The studios are robust, urban and tough with the emphasis on creating an environment for an intense workout. Finishes are natural concrete, exposed brickwork and blackened steel with carefully detailed fittings inspired by Carlo Scarpa in timber, selected Italian marble and brass. The main studio and u-cycle studio are in black. The yoga studio is emerald green with concrete walls and a natural bamboo floor. Spa rooms are in a smoky oak with coloured walls with a fabric wall paper.
KXU requires no membership and offers a 'pay as go' approach. Alongside classes such as u-cycle, yoga, The Games and Body Barre, there is a spa and restaurant for post-class relaxation.
