Set to open on January 3, the new Fit Republik health club appears to have it all. A massive gymnastics arena with foam pits to break tour fall, mixed martial arts classes, 12 weightlifting stations, crossfit sessions, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and bouldering walls, as well as studios for yoga and pilates have all been crammed into this goliath 9,000sqm facility.

In fact, Fit Republik’s army of 51 coaches – who are either retired Olympians, Guinness World Record holders, or experts in their field – offer more than 500 different classes ranging from aikido to wrestling every week for all ages.

The venue also promises to have stylish chill-out areas for a post-workout protein shake, on-site dry cleaning services and a healthy eating café. Gym bunnies can pre-register online now and get early bird membership deals before the doors open. It looks like fitness in Sports City just got serious.

According to their own material, Fit Republik is ‘every kind of activity for anyone, of any age, who wants to improve; a fitness community of experts and amateurs who love what we do; a place for the world to come together for hardcore fun.
