Paramount Recreation Club, Sydney

Escape from the city. Paramount Recreation Club rethinks the role of the traditional gym, and instead combines what you need with what you love. Designed by Bob Barton, the space is set on one of the most beautiful rooftops in Sydney, and strengthens both your body and mind, leaving you feeling renewed and ready for the day or night.

Bringing members together as a community, the Recreation Club provokes conversations and creates opportunities to engage with like-minded people through a combination of classes, consultations and club events. Under the guidance of some of Sydney’s best specialist instructors, a daily schedule of classes (think yoga, mat Pilates, barre, boxing, meditation and the signature Paramount Workout), echoes Fitness & Health Director Jordan Ponder’s essential message: strength, movement and conditioning.

Balance is the key – the club’s kiosk menu is built around a base of seasonal, local produce, and takes cues from healthy Californian-style cooking, the simplicity of Japanese cuisine, the fresh flavour of Mediterranean fare and the warmth of traditional Indian cooking.
