We have four large chains (Fitness First, Virgin Active, the Better Ice and Leisure Centre and the Gym Group) as well as the independent Squats Gym, yoga classes and outdoors boot camp on Streatham common.
London is home to one of the most diverse communities in the world. Nearly 1/3 of Londoners were born abroad, and over 200 languages are spoken here.

In the 1950s Streatham had the longest and busiest shopping street in south London. However, a combination of factors led to a gradual decline through the 1970s and a more rapid decline in the 1980s. Streatham got a bad reputation. But so what. Things changed so much. The reality is amazing.
A new network of metropolitan railways allowed for the development of suburbs in neighbouring counties from which middle-class and wealthy people could commute to the centre.
This video aims to tell the rich history of this Neighborhood in suburban London where I live. It made me understand the reasons why those born and been living in Streatham for a long time, are so proud of it.
