The Chainstore Gym
Movement. Strength. Functional fitness. Parkour… the Chainstore Gym is the UK’s premier training facility and home to Parkour Generations
Parkour & Movement Training
The Chainstore Gym was once used to house and test the strength of massive ship chains for London’s Docks – now it tests a different kind of mettle. The Gym houses the UK’s only true indoor parkour training zone, designed to mimic the conditions of the outside world in terms of materials, feel and atmosphere: a true one-of-a-kind facility that is unmatched anywhere in the world. We believe that movement is the ultimate training method for the human body – after all, that’s what it evolved for.

The when, where, who and what.
Please be aware that the gym is not available for Open Gym Training outside of the bookable sessions on the Parkour Generations App.
You are welcome to come join us at the Chainstore Gym for your own personal training during any Open Gym Training time. However please be aware that, even during these times, certain parts of the facility or pieces of equipment may be in use by bookings or classes, and you may have to wait for them to become available. All efforts will be made to share and accommodate all our customers, but bookings will have priority on equipment usage.
Please be aware that we do not allow children under the age of 14 to use the facility outside of classes or private bookings.
Younger practitioners aged 7 – 15 can use the facility, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of their visit, who can also sign a waiver on their behalf on their first visit. Our Kids Classes now happen at the nearby LONDON PARKOUR SCHOOL.
