From peddling to dodgeball, you’ll find no shortage of cool ways to stay active this winter in Sydney. So laugh in the face of the cold weather with these awesome indoor workouts.
You might have noticed the hot yoga trend that’s popped up in recent years, and the colder months are the perfect time to experience it for yourself. Bikram is the original style of hot yoga, consisting of various stretches and breathing exercises in a room heated to a toasty 40 degrees. Bikram Yoga Darlinghurst is great for newcomers, offering 30 days of unlimited yoga for $39. Give it a go, and escape the winter chill while also building flexibility and strength.
“I was refereed by a friend, I never tired Bikram yoga before this and thought it sounded interesting so I gave it a try. At first I was a little shy but the teachers and great, they are super friendly, if you struggle with a position they are there to help and they actually do help. The studio doesn’t smell, the people who attend are super friendly as well, loved this place and will be back!” – Elsa_P

A swanky private gym where natural, wholesome methods reign supreme, Youtopia is a lovely environment in which to keep fit and challenge yourself. The spin classes here are really good, with friendly instructors, uplifting music and a beautifully clean and modern space in which to pump your little legs. They’re only $12 per class too, so it’s well worth investigating this winter.
“Youtopia is the total antithesis of the testosterone gyms that we have come to hate. The atmosphere is calm & the one on one training is personally tailored to your fitness level & ability. You will be worked hard but somehow it’s not a chore. My fitness level has improved considerably & I have even come to enjoy the sessions.” – NJ56
Few things in this world are as pleasant as a heated swimming pool, especially when the winter chill settles in. The ABC pool demonstrates this wonderfully, with toasty water, gorgeous views of Woolloomooloo Bay, and loads of room to practise your strokes. It’s been a Sydney icon for more than a hundred years, and you’ll only have to fork out $6.50 to gain entry to the pool.
“Great all round outdoor pool. Clean, good parking availability, cafe, view and great if you are meeting friends with kids.” – Hot Dog
