27 May 2015 - Lendlease has joined forces with the world's leading health club and gym operator Fitness First, to open two new sites at Barangaroo South on Sydney Harbour in Australia.

The new offering will include a Platinum Club occupying 1,200m2 of space in Tower One of International Towers Sydney and a world-first Wellness Studio providing Pilates, yoga, BARRE and relaxation classes to Fitness First Platinum members.

Lendlease Managing Director of Barangaroo South, Andrew Wilson, said there is an inherent commitment to promoting health and wellbeing at Barangaroo: “We are delighted to welcome Fitness First and their exciting wellness initiative to Barangaroo to complement the precinct’s public benefits such as 50 per cent open space, and kilometres of waterfront pedestrian and cycling paths.”

The Wellness Studio will form part of a unique fitness system offering within the Sydney CBD, where busy workers and residents will have access to the very latest fitness innovations from Fitness First within a short walk from their office or home.

Andy Cosslett, Global CEO of Fitness First said the new location will add to Fitness First’s 68 strong network of clubs along the Eastern seaboard of Australia: “Barangaroo is the fastest growing region of the CBD and our new offering will enable our members to reach a club within five minutes throughout the majority of Sydney city, alleviating their time pressures during lunchtime and pre-morning training sessions.”

With state-of-the-art facilities set in a large open space filled with natural light, Fitness First at Barangaroo will have strong emphasis on group training and exercise that nurtures the body, mind and spirit.

“More and more we are finding that members are looking for a wellbeing dimension to exercise so our mind and body classes at the new Wellness Studio at Barangaroo will help members to rebalance, de-stress and restore their body’s natural equilibrium,” said Andy.

It is anticipated that Fitness First at Barangaroo will open in Spring 2016.
