The fitness centres at Cook + Phillip Park Pool, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre and Victoria Park Pool will undergo major refurbishments and upgrades to equipment.

Our teams have listened to our 360 members feedback, and each fitness centre has been designed to optimise and maximise the workout experience.

After the launch of the new state-of-the-art fitness centre at Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre in early 2021, it is exciting to be ending 2021 with major upgrades to the other fitness centres across Sydney.

Upgrades include;

  • New layout and dedicated zones
  • New strength & cardio machines
  • New spin bikes in spin studios (Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre and Victoria Park Pool)
  • New audio sound system in group fitness studios
  • New group fitness equipment, including the Les Mills Smartbar
  • New and upgraded flooring
  • Electrical upgrades
