Fitness First has opened its first outdoor gym set up in Sydney’s Rushcutters Bay park.

“We’re excited to parter with the City Of Sydney council to offer the extensive weights and cardio facility in open parkland,” says Fitness First CEO Chris Sandringham.

“It will cost users only $65 an hour.”

It’s understood the move intends to rival personal trainers, who have set up equally hectic outdoor demountable gyms during covid.

“The outdoor gymnasium sector is growing quickly in response to ongoing restrictions on indoor gyms,” says Chris Sandringham.

“It will be annoying for our staff to set up the gym and pack it away each day, but it’s an important part of our covid safe plan.”

Anytime Fitness is expected to follow suit.
