 …long weekend – the sun truly does bring out the best in us – it’s back to the grind. At UJ we have health on the brain (retox, detox, repeat), and seemingly the rest of London does, too. This weekend (11th-13th May) sees Balance Festival, where you’ll find all of wellbeing’s finest. Also coming up from 23rd-24th June is Sweatlife, Lululemon’s two-day-long fitness fest. With all this in mind, today we’ve brought you a round-up of what’s on our fit-dar. Memberships are out, and pay-as-you-go studios and retreats are in. Speaking of, if you know of any great fitness retreats (especially in Europe), let us know! And for a retox? Some of the best things we’ve spotted on menus recently include Neptune’s caviar waffles, temper Covent Garden’s thin, crispy bar pizza with burrata, and olive oil ice cream at The Petersham, which is divine. If you’re up for a day-to-night rave, earmark 19th May for Skream, PBR, Harvey, Peggy G and Hot Chip at Printworks and of course the Circoloco opening at DC10 on 21st May. Enjoy the short week!

You Gotta Move
Why are we quitting gym memberships? We examine the culprits
From membership clubs with some serious gym session allure to flexi-time fitness that fits around our schedules, there’s a whole new way our fitness regimes are working for us that are leaving traditional gym memberships at the starting line.

Get Booking
Don’t miss these one-off events
With so much happening in the city all the time, it can be easy to miss out on those special, one-night-only events. With this in mind, we’ve rounded-up some May highlights for you, including a Mexican supper club with Thomasina Miers and Jonathan Zaragoza, and a surprise Japanese tasting menu at Untitled (you won’t know what’s on offer until the night itself). Plus, make sure to get a ticket for the the latest installment of Lyle’s guest series, featuring Fredrik Berselius of NYC’s Michelin-starred Aska – booking opens from 11th May. And for something a little different, RSVP to the premiere of Tulum documentary Flows at Ace Hotel’s Miranda on the 16th.

UJ Playlist
Pump Up the Jam
Uplifting beats for your workout
Even if you’re a fitness lover, working out without a good soundtrack can feel like a chore. Luckily, we’ve put together a playlist of tracks – from the credible to the cheesy – to get you in the zone.

PBR Streetgang
Ahead of PBR Streetgang’s appearance with DJ Harvey, Skream and Peggy Gou at Printworks on 19th May, we asked Bonar Bradberry how he keeps things balanced. Get their debut album Late Night Party Line here.
Where's your go to for healthy food in London?
I don’t know if it’s really classed as healthy, but The Spread Eagle is vegan and it’s VERY tasty!

Favourite track to get you pumped?
In the sunshine it’s Ayzmuth – Jazz Carnival, but if I ever manage to work out again it’ll be this LCD Soundsystem track.

And where do you go for some indulgence?
Keu on Old St. The duck baguettes are my weakness!

Remedy State
Unexpected Calm
Meditation meets music
No longer confined to yoga studios, meditation and mindfulness are reaching out and making their mark within the music industry. Want to detox before you retox? Remedy State happens in Ibiza right before IMS, focusing on getting you mentally and physically prepared for the season ahead (hotel packages are now sold out so don’t miss the remaining tickets). Fabric are getting in on things too. They’ve teamed up with meditation guru Will Williams to host a guided session for World Meditation Day, with sound baths from Sound Sebastien, B.Traits on the decks and refreshments by Seedlip and Rebel Kitchen. If you get a taste for the mindful life, look out for Will’s Shavasana Disco nights, where you can zone out to some of the greatest records of all time.
