If there is one city that goes above and beyond to make the Under Armour Turf Games crew feel welcome it's Sydney.
Last week saw our second Under Armour Turf Games competition and first Summer Festival in Australia and once again we were blown away by the support we received from the fitness community.
A week of workouts, beach swims, recovery sessions, seeing the sights and eating was topped off with an epic Ashes of Fitness Battle at 98 Gym, and a Turf Games competition that saw 50 teams go head to head in a series of killer workouts at the awesome Chocolate Box Training space.
Thank you to everyone that competed from Australia, and to the UK teams that flew out to take part. Thank you to all the spectators for showing their support to us and the athletes, and to all those that turned up to help and judge on the day.
We are also beyond grateful to our partners Under Armour, Alphafit, Mobot, Red Bull Australia and vendors Blue Dinosaur, Convict Coffee, My Muscle Chef and Aqualove.
Here's a little recap on what the Under Armour Turf Games crew got up to last week and a few recommendations if you're headed Sydney side.
Sydney has a HUGE range of functional fitness gyms to get stuck in to while in town, both in and around the city and also on the northern beaches.
98 Gym - www.98gym.com (98 Riley St, Darlinghurst, NSW 2010)
We held the Ashes of Fitness event here - watch the video for the lowdown and to see more of this awesome space.
Befit Double Bay - www.befit.training (Shop 1/377 New South Head Rd, Double Bay, NSW 2028)
One of our favourite places to workout in Sydney. Here's the TG crew post workout at Befit and watch the video below.
The Cube - www.thecubegym.com.au (Unit E/134-140 Old Pittwter Rd, Brookvale NSW 2100)

After all that hard sweating - a chill out recovery session is in order. Sydney has the perfect place to get your body back in tip top shape, all while taking in a movie in a recliner chair and having a cold beer or wine. Check out our experience at Cultivate below.
The Depot - www.thedepotbondi.com (286 Campbell Parade, North Bondi NSW 2026)
Harry's - www.harrysbondi.com.au (2/136 Wairoa Ave, Bondi Beach)

The Good One - www.goodonebondi.com.au (Shops D&E, 132 Warners Ave, Bondi Beach NSW 2026)
Bondi Icebergs - www.icebergs.com.au (1 Notts Ave, Bondi NSW 2026)
Cheap eats and Aussie vibes overlooking the iconic Bondi pools.
North Bondi RSL - www.northbondirsl.com.au (118-120 Ramsgate Ave, North Bondi NSW 2026)
Manly Wharf Hotel - www.manlywharfhotel.com.au (E Esplanade, Manly, NSW 2095)
For cool vibes and Aussie sport star spotting.
Take the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly to capture all the sites from the water. Do the Bondi to Bronte walk/run. Get up early (6am - jet lag makes this easy) and head down to Bondi and take in the Aussie active lifestyle vibes. The beach is packed with people of all ages, running, swimming, playing touch footy, bootcamps and just being active.
That's a wrap from the 2019 Under Armour Turf Games down under... we can't wait to be back bigger and even better next year for more fun in the Sydney sun.
