Visitors to the Sporting Club Sydney, located in the new Allianz Stadium, lose their minds over the establishment’s “ridiculous” amenities and annual membership fees.
The ‘Lifestyle’ members took to social media to share a glimpse of the luxurious $830million ‘oasis’, suggesting it could very well be the fanciest gym in the country.
“I can safely say this is the most boujee gym in Sydney,” Australian model Ellese Chloe said in a TikTok video that detailed her experience at the centre.

The Sydney-based influencer pointed to the gym’s “ridiculous” membership price, which charges users a minimum membership fee of $5,000 and up to $22,000 a year to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facility.
The center has two gyms – an indoor strength-based gym with “all the machines you could want” and a cardio gym that includes an outdoor exercise section – a weight training classroom. spin-cycle with nine screens and areas for pilates and yoga.

The TikTok video showed off the property’s “day spa vibe” features, including a 25-meter cold indoor pool and a 50-meter heated outdoor pool with “really soft” water, a steam room , an infrared sauna and recovery room, cabanas with televisions, bar area, outdoor dining area, terrace and cafe.
Some of the more “luxury” out-of-the-box services and aspects of the center include oysters in the cafeteria, a machine that can dry swimsuits in less than eight seconds, an instant steamer, a karaoke machine, a virtual golf room and two squash courts.
The club’s changing rooms have been described by online users as ‘like a beautifully designed five-star hotel’, with tiled walls and floors and each changing station fitted with Dyson hair tools and appliances.
“It’s amazing and I want to get back there as soon as possible,” Ms Chloe said.
“I am impressed.”
The lifestyle club also offers childcare, which Fox Sports presenter Tara Rushton, wife of NRL star Cooper Cronk, said she “won her over”, a studio body- mind and four spa treatment zones for “massages and facials” to relax and unwind.
“You can come, meet friends, work out, get a massage, play golf and bring your kids here for a few happy hours,” she said in a YouTube video.
“It’s the crème de la crème when it comes to training. Where else would you like to spend your Sunday?”
TikTok user Cass B echoed Ms Chloe and Ms Rushton’s sentiment by saying “hello to my new favorite place in Sydney”, in a similarly styled video.
“It cost 830 million to build this stadium and I understand why, it’s lush,” she said.
“Holy moly this place is ridiculous.”
A guest pass for the club costs around $5,000, while the ultimate membership includes tickets to ‘selected’ season matches of Sydney Swans, Sydney Roosters, NSW Waratahs and Sydney FC.
After four years of development, the Allianz Stadium in Sydney’s Moore Park has finally opened its doors to the public on August 28, with tens of thousands of visitors flocking to see the installation for the first time.
