Undercard Boxing Gym has officially opened its doors in the heart of Sydney offering high-intensity training to those in and around the CBD. Located in Darlinghurst, Undercard is the international brand with a distinct training model that fuses traditional boxing with full-body conditioning.
Undercard’s equipment includes the TechnoGym skillmill, free-runner treadmills and weights with personalised levels of resistance. Training incorporates boxing, running and weights all in the one superior workout.
Undercard Sydney is co-founded by boxer, coach and personal trainer, Zach Vickers. Vickers is renowned within the Australian fitness community for shaping some of the country’s most recognisable bodies, including former Miss Universe Australia turned media personality Jesinta Franklin; global men’s style icon and Business of Fashion 500-lister Justin O’Shea; P.E Nation founder Pip Edwards; and NRL player Thomas Burgess.
Vickers travelled to New York to check out the local fitness scene and find inspiration for his Sydney venture.
“The goal was to simply observe the different methodologies and structures of various studios and examine how they offered not only boxing but fitness in general. New York is definitely at the forefront of the fitness industry, and the trip offered a lot of insight that has shaped what we’ve built here in Sydney.”
Upstairs, Undercard Sydney is a contemporary, light-filled space with generous two-storied ceiling height, fresh white walls and custom-built wood cabinetry and parquetry floors. The interior houses a formal reception and glove check-in, a barista espresso and protein-driven smoothie bar, numbered lockers and luxury bathroom amenities and change-room facilities.
Also located on the ground floor is a break-out, personal one-to-one boxing studio equipped with high-end Assault AirBikes, WaterRower rowing machines and SkiErgs.
Downstairs the blackout room features eighteen 21” 190 lbs heavy-duty water-filled Aqua Training Bags suspended from the ceiling and numbered on the floor. Similarly, lined around the perimeter of the room are eighteen TechnoGym skillmill treadmills coupled with an adjacent workbench and select range of free-weights to choose your level of resistance and workout.
Certified boxing instructors lead 36 person classes through the step-by-step routines while wall-to-wall mirrors allow participants to gauge and improve their technique. The blackout room features two 58” LED screen monitors, showcasing the instructors moves at varying angles, a state-of-the-art sound system, and is dimly-lit in the brands signature orange hue.
Undercard offers six classes per day from a 5:30 am session through until 7:00 pm and is located at 82 Oxford Street, corner of Oxford and Crown Streets, Darlinghurst.
