5 New Workouts for Busy Professionals

One Wellington St Kilda has commissioned fitness guru, Sam Wood to design its gym and create workouts for future residents.

Located in a high-profile site surrounded by Melbourne's most vibrant and lively neighbourhoods of St Kilda, St Kilda East, Albert Park, Windsor and Prahran, One Wellington is a new project by property developer, LAS Group Developments and capital partner, Qualitas.

The development, located at St Kilda Junction, will introduce 181 new homes, offering buyers choice and convenience including a variety of premium onsite amenities. Future residents will enjoy lifestyle-enhancing facilities including a gym designed by renowned Melbourne-based wellness coach and fitness guru, Sam Wood. Sam Wood is proud to partner with One Wellington to develop five key workouts for future residents and design a gym layout that is timeless, practical and functional.

"One of the biggest reasons why most people don't get into shape is lack of time. A state-of-the-art gym at One Wellington ensures residents have a fitness solution that works seamlessly with their busy lifestyles. When you make activity convenient for people, they move their bodies and get great results," he said.

"The great thing about One Wellington is that it offers residents choice and convenience.

If people want to change it up and head outdoors, they have Albert Park Lake virtually at their doorstep and the beach is only a few minutes away," Wood said. Les Smith, Managing Director of LAS Group Developments, said careful consideration, thought and investment have been made into the shared spaces at One Wellington.

"More and more people are taking advantage of inner-city living, but health and wellness remains very important to buyers. In fact, one of the things buyers expect as a non-negotiable in a building is a gym," he said.

"We worked closely with Sam Wood to design our gym, balancing innovative technology with impeccable design. The amenities at One Wellington are very important to us, because it creates a community within the building," Mr Smith said.

The recreation spaces at One Wellington set the scene for working out or winding down in style. From the high-spec gym equipment to the serenity of the lap pool, spa, sauna and steam room, every element has been considered for the relaxation and health of residents. A new life at One Wellington is one of total wellbeing.

Residents will also have access to unique and premium services including 24/7 concierge, dry and cool storage for grocery deliveries, access to shared workspaces, cinema and elegant residents' lounge with a private dining area and bar.
