Work out like a boss at James Packer’s former private gym

The aesthetics of the new Premier Health & Fitness in Sydney’s CBD seem more like a luxury hotel than a gym.

With its spiral staircase centrepiece, polished marble bathroom floors and decadent mix of timber, glass and mirrored finishes, the aesthetics of Premier Health & Fitness CBD seems more like a luxury hotel than a gym.

It comes as no surprise to learn that this Sydney luxury fitness club was previously owned by billionaire casino magnate James Packer and known as Fifty Four Park St.

A recent two-month renovation features a new layout and brand new Technogym equipment.

Targeting the corporate market, there are cardio and strength training zones plus group exercise classes, such as the Technogym Connected Group Cycle Class.

Technogym is reputed to be the world’s first and only indoor cycling bike that allows users to track training with real-time data. Users – from beginners to experienced riders – can set new workout parameters while the bike provides a multi-sensory experience similar to real road cycling.

When your workout is over, you probably won’t want to rush out, though. All of the famous fittings from the Packer era remain, including a 25-metre indoor pool, spas, steam and sauna rooms and plunge pool.

Even the change-rooms are lavish, so you’ll feel and look good before you head back into reality.
