With 850sqm floorspace and a dedicated large group fitness area fitted with a glass skywall, the space is New York warehouse style with an industrial feel and concrete columns, high ceilings and exposed ductwork on view.

Technology integrated machines that track your workout and let you watch your favourite sport or game right in front of you while you workout!

Enjoy the best experience by using your DeakinMOVES app to connect with all of the equipment in the gym.
