Five Places to Meet Your Personal Trainer in Camden
Second only to Wandsworth among inner London boroughs in terms of green space, there is no shortage of amazing outdoor places to meet your personal trainer in Camden. Here, we take a look at five of the best locations.
1. Primrose Hill
At 64 metres, Primrose Hill is the second highest natural point in Camden, so is perfect for some high-intensity interval training (HIIT) in the form of hill sprints. Additionally, Primrose Hill has an outdoor gym on its southern edge, complete with ab benches and various bars of the pull, push, parallel, and monkey variety. So, whether you’re meeting your personal trainer in Camden for either cardio or resistance training (or both), Primrose Hill is a great option.
Closest stations: It’s a 10–15-minute walk from Swiss Cottage (Jubilee Line) and Chalk Farm (Northern Line) underground stations.
2. Regents Park
While Regents Park lacks the elevation of neighbouring Primrose Hill, at 410 acres its wide expanses are ideal for some steady-state cardio. So big is Regents Park that hundreds of cyclists meet daily to complete laps of its Outer Circle. But perhaps its biggest draw is its beauty. Filled with rose gardens and surrounded by elegant town houses and villas, Regents Park is one of the most enchanting places to meet with your personal trainer in Camden.
Closest stations: Regents Park is on the doorsteps of Baker Street (Bakerloo, Circle, Hammersmith and City, Jubilee, and Metropolitan lines), Regents Park (Bakerloo Line), and Great Portland Street (Circle, Hammersmith and City, and Metropolitan lines) underground stations.
3. Kilburn Grange Park

At just 8 acres, little Kilburn Grange Park is at the other end of the size spectrum compared to Regents Park. However, what it lacks in size it makes up for with facilities. As well as tennis and basketball courts, it has an outdoor gym with pull-up and parallel bars and a half-dozen machines. It even has an elaborate children’s playground, with a climbing frame, a treehouse, and a rope swing—great if you have kids and want to meet your personal trainer in Camden at a location where your little ones can also have fun.
Closest stations: It’s a 10-minute walk from Kilburn and West Hampstead underground stations (Jubilee Line).
4. Tavistock Square
The smallest (and most central) of the locations on the list, Tavistock Square is best for those who enjoy bodyweight exercises that don’t require equipment or loads of space. With inspiring features, including a statue of the long-imprisoned Gandhi and a cherry blossom that honours the victims of the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombings, training in Tavistock Square can cultivate a state of gratitude. For those looking for somewhere to meet their personal trainer in Camden where they can expand their consciousness as well as their muscles, Tavistock Square could be just the place.
Closest stations: It’s a 10-minute walk from Euston Square (Circle, Hammersmith and City, and Metropolitan lines) and Russell Square (Piccadilly Line) underground stations.
5. Hampstead Heath
The largest (and least central) of the locations on the list, Hampstead Heath is perfect those who want to meet their personal trainer in Camden in a place where they can feel like they’re in the countryside. Having said that, with the highest natural point in the borough (about 130 metres), the heath does provide amazing views of the city. Hosting a weekly Parkrun—a 5-km event that was first held at Bushy Park—Hampstead Heath is an idyllic place for a jog, but with an outdoor gym on the southern edge of Parliament Hill you can also get in a great resistance session.
