For that reason, PEDESTRIAN.TV proudly presents: The Bestest And Most Delicious Places That Are In Close Proximity To Fitness Studios In Australia’s Capital Cities.


Flow Athletic > Jackie’s Cafe
1/134 Oxford St, Paddington
Flow Athletic offers it all – yoga, spin and HIIT strength classes. They’ve got personal training too, so you can truly cover all bases. Take a walk down the busting Glenmore Rd shopping strip, chuck a left and you’ll arrive at the swish Jackie’s Cafe.
Founded by the late Sydney socialite Jackie Milijash, it’s a hit amongst the Insta-famous like Roxy Jacenko, Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton. Jackie’s serves up classic brunch fare, and is considered a “quintessential” Sydney cafe spot.

Power Living > Banana Blossom 

2A Jaques Ave, Bondi Beach NSW 2026

Doesn’t get much more Bondi than this. Power Living is something of a yoga institution in Australia, with studios in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. They offer Vinyasa for a workout vibe, and Yin to ~chill~. 
Banana Blossom started out back in 2003 with a food truck in Hyde Park, and has since grown to be the go-to joint for healthy and fresh asian salads. Serendipitously, it’s right next door.

Egg of the Universe
711 Darling Street, Rozelle
Two-in-one! Egg of the Universe in Rozelle is both a yoga studio and a wholefoods cafe, so you don’t even have to leave the chillness of the studio to cop a feed. It’s the only integrated studio in Sydney, so you know it’s pretty special.
They’re open seven days, and you can pop a squat / drink a coffee / sip a green juice beneath the big tree out back.


MOVE Yoga > Bowery to Williamsburg

335 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

MOVE yoga opened in 2015, and is one of the most beautiful yoga studios in Melbourne. Blonde timber floors, sporadic greenery and huge, soft linen pendants create a space that feels more like a far-away retreat than a CBD studio. 
Get your limbs stretched and stroll 700m down the street, chuck a lil right and you’ll find Bowery to Williamsburg. Distinctly American, the joint offers New York-style sangas, salads and brekky options that may give you heart palpitations. 
16 Oliver Ln, Melbourne VIC 3000
F45 St Kilda > Matcha Mylkbar, St Kilda

Level 1, 43 Fitzroy St, St Kilda

F45 has been taking Australia by storm and it’s not hard to see why. The 45-minute-long function strength workouts are sweat-inducing in the extreme. Moving through a series of exercises with a small group of others works ya whole rig and having other hard-working folk around you may be the kick up the butt you need. F45’s St Kilda branch only opened a few weeks ago – so it’s as fresh as you’ll feel after a mammoth sesh.
800m down the road lies the incredibly popular Matcha Mylkbar. This brunch spot is 100% vegan – but don’t be put off if you’re not that way inclined. The menu is vibrant, fresh and fun, and the food is a Hemsworth brother favourite.
72A Acland St, St Kilda
Run the Tan > Jardin Tan

Birdwood Ave, South Yarra

Just one pic barely does The Tan justice. For the uninitiated, it stands for The Botanic Gardens, and the track runs right around the perimeter of the lush plot of plants. It’s 3.8kms long, which is the perfect pre-brunch length. Walk it, run it, do burpies on it – the possibilities are endless. It’s goddamned delightful in Spring.

A yuge plus is the fact that Jardin Tan lives there, too. Vietnamese-inspired grub probably isn’t the kind cuisine you’d imagine wanting first thing in the morning – but they brunch-ify it well. The crepe-style egg brunch is a winner.

Anchor Training > The Menagerie

14/81 Bishop St, Kelvin Grove

Anchor Training is so legit, they’ve even got a dang rock climbing wall. They believe working out should be “fun, non-intimidating and driven by a desire to better yourself,” which is why they go beyond benches and weights and provide climbing ropes and tyres to incorporate into your training.
A short 2km walk/jog/spring away is The Menagerie, which is possibly the cosiest cafe in all of QLD. Rustic decor and black walls make you feel like you’re right at home, except home is 100% cooler than actual home. It’s good, look, it even welcomes doggos:
22/8 Carraway St, Kelvin Grove
HIIT Locker > Medley Cafe & Restaurant

8 Ferry St, Kangaroo Point
HIIT Locker is brilliant for those of us who need a little more motivation when it comes to breaking a sweat. They offer intense group classes that’ll burn calories like no one’s business and leave you feeling motivated. 

800m down the river is Medley Cafe & Restaurant – and it is peak Brissy. Overlooking Story Bridge and a secret beach, Medley opens at 7:00am everyday, so you can get your coffee fix straight from the studio.

62 Wharf St, Kangaroo Point


Box & Bike at Queen Street Gym > Uncle Joe’s Mess Hall
20 Queen Street, Perth
Queen St Gym is beautiful, but it’s better known for something grittier – its Box and Bike class. Incorporating two of the best workout methods of boxing and cycling, the 45 minute class is popular among fit Perthites.
Hop a street along and you’ll find Uncle Joe’s Mess Hall. Whether you’re after an icy-cold Acai bowl, a bacon and eggs bennie, a full-blown burger or a Golden Grind latte, Joe’s got you covered.
74-76 King Street Perth

Booty Burn > Mr Herbert

243 Herbert Street, Perth
Personal Trainer Lisa Burns’ BootyBurn classes are a Western Australian speciality. She designed and created the class herself.
Not one to lay about, Burns’ has also opened Mr Herbert – a brilliant little hole-in-the-wall cafe serving up coffees and acai bowls by the truckload.

Inner Strength Pilates & Barre > Pollen 185

1/155 King William Rd, Hyde Park
Nothing can wake you up in the morning quite like a solid barre class. Strength Pilates & Barre in Perth’s Hyde Park is as good as they come, with reformer classes and individualised pilates classes, too. 
A few doors down you’ll find Pollen 185 – a brekky joint with a tonne of fresh, colourful plates. No guilt here.

The Pole Boutique > Nutrition Republic

114 Goodwood Rd, Adelaide

Adelaide may be the city of churches, but you’ll be screaming “Jeeeesus” when you see incredibly controlled movements of some of the pole-goers at The Pole Boutique. From beginners to advanced, everyone’s welcome.
The healthy creme brûlée bowl is a crowd favourite at Nutrition Republic, just 1.3km down the road – and will supplement your energy levels after a hectic class.

1/100 King William Road, 

There it is. Go out and chase your poached-egged dreams.
