Running without music is one thing (…though we still can’t quite get our heads around it) but a ride to no music is inconceivable. It brings the euphoric high to the cardio party and keeps us coming back for more.
Whether you’re partial to some ‘Ride n Grind’ to Hip Hop and R&B or a ‘Re Re Ride’ to a Garage MC, this studio has mastered the mix with its winning formula of Rockstar instructors, live music from house musicians, theatre grade lighting, surround sound and immersive pyrotechnics never seen before in a fitness studio.
The King of Gyms thing may have gone to their head but they sure know how to bring the party, going so far as installing a cocktail bar on site. Just remember… hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! If you’re making a morning of it head to Beany Green for a healthy Aussie style brunch packed with eggs, avocado, salmon and rye, or pick up a ‘grab and go’ box of nutritional goodness from The Good Yard.
