Surry Hills' newest workout space is a far cry from your average gym. After all, this one's located high up on a gorgeous rooftop, with the Sydney skyline making an idyllic backdrop to your sweat sessions. Set to open its doors in April, Paramount Recreation Club is out to take your fitness game to new heights...literally.
Focused on pulling together physical, social and mental health, it's a wellness space for the modern day, featuring a swag of classes, integrated health services and even an impressive food offering. With the goal of drawing the community together, there'll also be a program of regular talks, events and activities.
In a designer space that takes its cues from some serene Southern California health retreat, you'll be able to boost your skills in everything from yoga and barre, to skipping and Olympic lifting. Find some mental space with a meditation session, or get that blood pumping with the 60-minute Paramount Workout signature class.
If healing's more your focus, members can also access services like physiotherapy, massage and dietetics throughout the week.
And, to reward yourself post-workout, there's the Kiosk menu, developed by Griff Pamment and Sam Christie (Longrain, Cho Cho San and The Apollo), and pulling influences from Indian, Japanese and Mediterranean cuisine. Visitors can grab a feed to go, or enjoy it with a side of sprawling city views on the rooftop terrace.
The gym is just one part of Paramount House's recent renovation, which also includes the new Paramount House Hotel — also set to open in April 2018.
Paramount Recreation Club will open in April 2018 on the rooftop of Paramount House, 80 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills.
