Trekking it out to the gym is, well, not one of our greatest fortes TBH.
For starters, you’d expect to be treated like royalty for the exy gym fees you fork out, only to have trainers yell in your face and be forced to use sweaty and smelly AF equipment.
But all hail a new type of gym. The gym fit for true King and Queens. The gym where you can sweat and cry it out for 45 minutes, then sit down and treat yo’self to a glass of free Prosecco all while getting your hair styled. Yep, every one of your workout dreams has come true, thanks to the gym Gods aka Virgin Active.
The popular franchise has officially opened their brand spanking new gym in the glorious world of Barangaroo, and to say the space is a tad extra, would be an understatement.
Honestly, we’re talking state of the art equipment; complimentary protein shakes after every class, high tech spin bikes and shoes, high-tech Dyson hair dryers and the most lit AF room of mirrors – perfect for the post-workout selfie.
But the best part of all is that members are treated to complimentary Prosecco every Thursday and Friday from 5-8pm, and they’re able to book a free 20-minute blow dry treatment through the member portal, MyLocker.
It also makes for the perfect excuse to bring your dancing dress and shoes because from the gym, you can simply make your way up a single flight of stairs to the most chic rooftop bar, or choose to wine and dine at one of the many restaurants in the new precinct.
Now for the actual exercise part, the gym offers four classes: Revolution Cycle class, Focus Boxing class, Outdoor Calibration (which combines biomechanics, athletic mobility, core stability drills, running and yoga), and a strength and conditioning Burn class that will seriously make your body bloody burn like nothing else – trust us, we were on the verge of dying after a 12 minute tester.
But the gym’s level of luxuriousness doesn’t stop there – in fact, they’ve managed to assess every problem/fear/concern that has ever stopped you from hitting up the gym on the reg.
For all those concerned about gym germs (seriously though, your gym’s equipment has been proven to carry 300 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. WTF), Virgin Active Barangaroo has the solution.
The gym has installed the most futuristic Ozone Cleaning and Drying system, which is used in hotels, commercial kitchens and ski resorts for odour control. What this means is that the equipment will always be odourless and clean AF forever and ever and ever.
While we’d be happy to pay for membership just for the weekly Prosecco grams, we also wouldn’t mind sweating it out now and then.
While you’re here, this is why you always feel hungry after you lose weight. And this is how to lose the last 5kgs, according to the ninja warrior, Tiffiny Hall.
