It’s been a busy first month of 2011 here at The Foundry so apologies for the lack of update. The first big announcement is about the restructuring of our, and your, beloved business.  We are excited to announce that we have joined forces with Graeme Marsh, internationally renowned trainer and successful businessman, to found Foundry Studios Ltd.

This collaboration means our business portfolio now includes, The Foundry Personal Training Studios, The Training Shop, London Trainer Network,  DHG Corporate Outreach and our soon to be unveiled, unique bootcamp offering.  It also means Helen now has her own company credit card which could be dangerous.

Our new board of directors are:

  • Helen Thomas: Director of Retail
  • Graeme Marsh: Director of Business Development
  • Dave Thomas: Director of Performance

This restructuring and recent capital investment means we’ll be able to offer the same excellent services with even more professionalism. If you have any questions please contact

Due to overwhelming popular demand we have introduced another weekly HALF PRICE MASSAGE CLINIC on Wednesdays 10am-4pm.

No catches, no hidden extras, just half the normal price for deep tissue, Swedish or Sports Massage.

To book an appointment for Wednesday or our existing clinic 5-9pm on Mondays, please contact

Advance booking is essential as there are very limited spaces available.


Those who have been into The Foundry recently will have noticed the reception area has changed a bit.  We have been selling a few carefully chosen product lines, such as Vibram Five Fingers, with overwhelming success for a year or so, but we are excited to announce the expansion of our retail arm.

Over the next month or so we’ll be introducing our own line of evidence based, high quality nutritional supplements, fitness accessories, strength training equipment, health and fitness books and fitness footwear.

The City of London’s first and only specialist health and fitness shop, THE TRAINING SHOP will be announced officially to the world with a champagne and special guest press launch in March.
