This Olympic lifting and CrossFit inspired studio doesn’t just get the blood pumping – community spirit also courses through the veins of the men and women who train here under the guidance of founder Brandon Hasick and his team. At Body by Brando’s two studios, in Waterloo and Paddington, each one-hour workout is crafted so that no matter your skill level, anyone can join in and feel like part of the crew. Classes can be amped up or scaled back to meet the fitness and experience levels of individual participants, ensuring everyone gets a thorough sweat on without being left behind.
Mates make everything better – even exercise. So if you’re looking to kickstart your fitness aspirations, a group fitness class might be just the environment to put you on the path towards a healthier you. There are plenty to choose from across Sydney, so we’ve picked out a few of the finest.
If group fitness isn’t right for you, why not check out one of Sydney’s excellent outdoor pools, or even one of the city’s great climbing gyms, where you can boulder to a better bod? Looking for something a little weirder and whackier? Try one of Sydney's most off-beat fitness classes. And for those frugal fitness seekers out there, many of the city's excellent parks have outdoor fitness stations that are absolutely free to use.
