I think that most of us can agree that gyms can sometimes be pretty gross. Whether it’s that person who doesn’t bring a towel or just the general feeling of sweaty people around you, it’s not always the most inspiring place to get in your workouts. Plus, I am big on natural light, so as soon as there are no windows involved, I am running away faster than you can say burpee.
Today, gyms are a different story. Not only can you work with epic personal trainers and yoga instructors but the spaces just as breathtaking as how you feel after smashing out a hard session. Because gym selfies are a thing.
Here are some of our faves from around Sydney.
Bondi Outdoor Gym – Bondi
Why not take a break from the indoors and get both your daily sweat and vitamin D all in one. Plus you get to hang out in Sydney's own version of muscle beach!
