How common are fitness gyms in Sydney? I arrive mid-march, and want to continue "working out" and keeping in shape. Do some hostels have weight equipment? Or do they provide a discount to the local gym?

Any info would be appreciated! Thanks,

I am a member of Fitness First in Oz. They gave me a casual visit card to use at the FF gyms here. It is a bit of a long shot, but maybe the gym where you are at in Canada might have a presence in Oz? If you are in FF then you are set.

You will find that most gyms offer fairly cheap visitor rates.
But if you would like to keep fit at no cost, the "Bay Run" around Henly Marine Drive offers beautiful views of the inner west of Sydney and plenty of FF's. Its a 7km track that one can run or ride...there is also a good gym on that track that can accomodate your every fitness need!

It cost me 130 dollars to join a decent gym, and i go four times a week, so money well spent i think.

Most of the gyms in Oz are around $10-$15 now for a casual visit.
