Let’s admit it; we’ve all sifted through the filtered fantasy land of Instagram only to stumble upon yet another photo of a damn good backside placed alongside the famous Bondi beach vista. Then, the motivation kicks in … The yearn for a toned and perfectly sculpted bottom seems priority number one. Well, the only way to emulate the iconic Bondi beach babe is to start the fitness journey for yourself.
Here is a list of top go-to local places for breaking a sweat so you can look phenomenal in sweatpants, or any pants for that matter.
Power Living Yoga
Yoga is incredible for toning and sculpting, and our favourite yoga studio has to be Power Living in Bondi. This beach-side yoga studio is minutes from the beach, just off Hall Street. Whether you’re looking for a powerful Heated Vinyasa Yoga or a relaxing Yin Yoga class, this yoga studio has something for everyone. Plus, the zen spaces will have you swooning – beautiful, light and expansive, they are inspired by the beachy surrounds.
Also spectacular for shaping the behind is Pilates and Barre, and we love Bondi-based Balance Moves for these workouts. With a warm, friendly and community feel, this studio is built for the local resident and visiting Pilates and Barre lovers alike. Pilates is the perfect way to re-centre and correct postural alignment, leaving the body calm, stretched and renewed. As for Barre – get ready to feel the intense muscle burn with this full body workout that targets those smaller muscles (said to shape you like a ballet dancer – yay!). They also offer Barre Attack classes, which combine Pilates, dance and fitness to help create a longer, leaner, fitter body.
A hop, skip and jump away from the beach, Beachfit Bondi says it all in the name and gives fitness fanatics an array of exercise options. With state-of-the-art gym equipment, super knowledgeable personal trainers, F45 classes and a fun and stimulating space, this is a hot place to warm up. Also, after a sweaty session, the beach is only moments away so you can dive in to the ocean and cool down. Ahhh the Bondi life.
