Anytime Fitness Sydney City gym, located on George Street, will reopen next week after a major two month refurbishment, costing almost $1 million.
The club belongs to franchisees Carl Travers and Steven Decent who own seven other Anytime Fitness gyms. Anytime Fitness Sydney City originally opened over 5 years ago and was one of the first Anytime Fitness gyms in Australia. The refurbishment is in line with the constant improvements and advancements made by the brand to ensure it offers its members the best in fitness.
The company wants their members to see Anytime Fitness as more than just a gym and to ‘Feel Something Better’ – whether that’s weight loss, strength gain, a lift in self-esteem or something much more subjective, and Anytime Fitness believes they can provide this by being the gym that is refreshingly different. The new Sydney City gym is now setting the standards for the brand.
Carl Travers comments “Steven and I purchased a tired gym which was losing money. We looked past the club appearance, and financial figures, and saw great potential and we took a massive chance at the time. Our first step was to get the trust back in our members as member feedback was not listened too previously. Now the ultimate gift back to our members is this major refurbishment, and we are extremely proud that we can give our faithful members the best gym Anytime Fitness has to offer”.
Just some of the key elements of the new gym include:
- Member and guest lobbies
- Increased free weights and pin loaded equipment floor space
- Extra free weight equipment including dumbbells and squat racks
- Added functional training area
- Free classes for members
- Free run club for members
- Brand new treadmills with internet and Foxtel
- Brand new private bathrooms and change rooms
- Free WIFI for members
Anytime Fitness Australia Co-Founder Justin McDonell says, “When designing and refitting our clubs, we look at what our members will want and the services they will expect. We have world class equipment, a functional layout, online health resources, clean bathrooms,
top of the range security systems, and knowledgeable staff who take an interest in all their members. The new Sydney City gym is the perfect example of our commitment to reinvest in our brand and keep it fresh in each club”
