Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness has officially opened 350m² of new gym space at the Sydney University Sports & Aquatic Centre (SUSAC).

The additional space has been added to the existing Weights & Cardio Rooms at SUSAC and is available to all Gold & Silver gym pass holders. 

The new space features a 17-metre sled track, two TRX stations, fresh cardio equipment and a Hammer Strength HD Athletic ‘Rig’, a versatile, functional apparatus perfect for strength and performance training. 

Fitted with cross grind 12mm black rubber flooring and attack turf with two SUSF-branded logos, the space is home to a prowler sled, battle ropes, a plyometric foam box jump and two Octane Assault Bikes.

As well, the zone has a brand new kettlebell set (4kg-32kg), a full med ball set (2kg-10kg), SUSF-branded elite weight plates (94 in total, ranging from 5-20kg) and SUSF-branded dumbbells (complete set ranging from 10-50kg).

It also includes a number of new benches (flat and Olympic) and barbells (competition, barbells and evolution).

Perhaps the most notable feature of the expansion is the fresh, edgy wall art.

A firece lion is the focal point of the 17-metre design with fit, determined runners on either side; the personficiation of SUSF’s logo and ethos. 

The quote featured on the wall reads: “At first they’ll ask why you’re doing it. Later they’ll ask how you did it.”

This serves as motivation for members working to be their best, while speaking to the SUSF story in overcoming challenges and always striving for excellence.

The two TRX station walls feature black & white imagery that further compliment the functional space. 

Work on the expansion began in January 2018, with SUSF extending into space formerly occupied by the University of Sydney’s Co-op Bookshop.

Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness hosted an official opening of the fresh functional space in early-March. Members and their guests were invited to enjoy a range of refreshments, instructor demonstrations, giveaways and a live DJ.
