SWEAT IT OUT: The organisers of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras have announced that Kings Cross Fitness First will host this year’s recovery party.

“It seems like a natural fit,” says Mardi Gras organiser Jim Sleeman. “The gym is already very popular among Sydney’s gay community.”

“We know many partygoers are eager to get straight back into their normal workout routines after the parade.”

The gym will be open from 4am on March 6, when the first of the partygoers leave the Hordern Pavilion to continue partying into the morning and afternoon.

“I’ve been working out at Kings Cross Fitness First every day for the last few months in preparation for Mardi Gras,” says one man.

“So it’ll be good to be back in familiar territory. I can’t wait to get into the steam room.”
