What better incentive is there to visit a gym than a free bottle of gin? Turns out, Newtown’s One Playground agree, as they are handing out free bottles of Four Pillars Gin to the first 50 attendees to celebrate their $5 million renovations.

The swanky new gym, which was previously called Fitness playground, has a state-of-the-art reformer pilates room, a “training in the clouds” spin room, a “bunker” training room, and even a DJ booth.

And, their re-opening is going to be nothing short of a party, with an official ribbon cutting taking place at 8am on Saturday, March 4th followed by merchandise giveaways, live DJs and wellness shots. Plus, everyone and anyone is invited to train for free on the opening day.

“Fueling the Fitness Playground brand was a vision to offer our members the widest variety of high-quality experiences. Rebranding as One Playground marks the next step in fulfilling this vision,” CEO and Co-Founder Justin Ashley said of the impressive renovations.

He added, “Our mission is to create the best gyms, not the most gyms, and we believe each space should be both inspiring and unique. To achieve this vision, we have a saying ‘no two Playgrounds will ever be the same’. We design every square inch from scratch, to turn each gym into an experience. We want to design our spaces that feel like the Merivale of Gyms, not the McDonalds.”

And, the futuristic space in Newton won’t be the last of its kind for One Playground.

“There are more One Playgrounds to come, and the designs we have created are truly mind-blowing. Our Mothership concept, which is our take on a Flagship, takes the gym experience to another level. Another gym that is being designed will feature a brass winding staircase as the centre piece of a large three-level facility,” Justin said.
