Coronavirus (Covid-19): Updates

Update Wednesday 29th April:

We are currently running 2 online classes.

Strength and Mobility Bootcamp with Fabio, Wednesdays at 6pm

Muay Thai with Jimi, Fridays 6pm

Please email for access details or check your email if you are a member (check junk email too and add us to safe senders list).

We continue to share workouts on our social channels and have created a video library of techniques on our You Tube Channel

Please keep an eye out for more classes being added soon.



Update Wednesday 1st April:

We hope everyone is keeping well and safe during these times.

Our first batch of online material is almost complete and should be live by the end of the week. We’ll email and update here on how to access.

Membership Payments:

We have been working through the cancel, freeze and discounts requests (as outlined below) that we have received so far. If your payment has come out today or recently we will hold on to this as credit for when we re-open and apply the 50% discount going forward (again as credit). If you have any concerns regarding your payments, please email us

If you have an upfront membership or a class pack, we will reinstate the lost time when we re-open. You do not need to contact us to have this credited and will be done automatically when we open again.

Thanks for your continued support.


Update Friday 20th March:

Effective immediately we have unfortunately closed both Moorgate and Balham gyms until further notice. Although we had already made the decision earlier, we’re following the latest government announcement requiring gyms to close.

The health and safety of our clients always came first and that’s why we had taken all possible steps to keep the gym open but safe. Although we have had no confirmed cases in either gym this is the best decision to ensure the country can deal with this pandemic.

We’re busy working on a digital platform to share with our members. This will include training tips and workouts you can be doing when out of the gym. There will also be some educational videos, so you can continue learning your discipline even if your unable to train alone or don’t have the right kit. Please be patient while we get this live.

Just like everyone else, we hope this will be over soon and we can return to normal.

Membership options:

We would request you not to cancel your membership during this time and have the following 3 options:

  1. We discount membership by up to 50% now and leave this discount in place when your return for the same number of months you was unable to use the gym / until we pay you back.
  2. We apply a freeze for a monthly fee of £25
  3. Do nothing and we automatically apply a discount when you return

If you really must cancel, then the usual 1 month notice applies. However we can hold the notice payment as credit for when you come and rejoin.

We thank you for your continued support and loyalty through. Stay safe.

Update Tuesday 17th March:

Currently both Moorgate and Balham locations remain open. We are monitoring the situation which is changing on an hourly basis and will update members should we decide to close.

As things stand we have made the following decisions:

  • All classes cancelled in Moorgate until further notice, the gym remains open to use usual hours
  • All grappling (BJJ, MMA, Wrestling) classes have been cancelled in Balham until further notice
  • All kids classes have been cancelled until further notice

Please make sure you check Balham’s timetable before attending a class as our schedule may change.

FCG is a community and a family, both in and out of the gym. We will always prioritise the health and safety of our members and staff. We understand that many members may be required to work from home, similarly you may prefer not to use the facilities during this time. Please be assured we are doing everything to minimise any risks while we remain open (detailed below).

Switching your membership to Balham is an option open to all, please email us and we will facilitate this. If however, you can no longer use the gym, we would request you not to cancel your membership and in return we will apply a discount going forward to help cover the costs of the time you have not been able to attend. We understand this is not possible for all, therefore we have the option to freeze for a reduced monthly fee. If you really must cancel, then the usual 1 month notice applies and we can process this for you.
We hope you understand, if everyone cancels or freezes there may not be a gym to come back to once this all blows over.

We thank you for your loyalty through this difficult time for all.
