Lord of the Rig Gym is located at 191/205 William St, Darlinghurst, Sydney NSW 2010. We're a couple hundred meters down from the infamous Kings Cross Coca-Cola sign (if you see the sign, look down the hill to the left - you can’t miss us!).
The closest train station would be Kings Cross, which is a five minute walk. There is also a bus stop on William street just 50 metres away.
The parking situation is very good. Parking is free in the morning, directly outside the gym. If that’s full, try Premier Lane which runs directly behind the gym. In the evenings it is metered parking out the front, so most members try their luck in the back lane.
Our core service offering is group training and personal training, please view our group timetable here.
We are open six days per week, and classes usually commence at 5:15am or 6am. After the morning sessions, the gym is usually closed unless you have booked a private one-on-one session. We open again in the evenings from 5:45pm and close at 7:30pm.
On Saturday mornings we are open a little later, between 6:45am to 9:00am

Lord of the Rig was established in Darlinghurst in 2015.
The majority of members live in the nearby area within a couple of kilometres radius from the gym. Most are from Redfern, Paddington, Double Bay and Bondi. There are some keen beans that come from north of Sydney harbour bridge (Mosman, Balmain, etc). We estimate we help 300 new clients per year.
Our personal trainers live locally and have extensive experience in the health and fitness industry. We proudly pay our staff above the industry standard, as we see this as an investment in ourselves and our clients.
We expect a lot from our staff - keeping clients safe, keeping them injury free and taking the extra time to educate our clients and motivate them towards their goals!
Our staff undergo regular, ongoing professional development in the health and fitness industry to ensure we are up to date with current scientific evidence.
Geoff is a graduate from Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. Nikki & Mackenzie are both graduates from the Australian Fitness Institute (AFI). Learn more about our coaches here.
Lord of the Rig is constantly reviewing our own processes to identify ways we can upscale our services, thereby offering better classes and attaining better results!
At our Darlinghurst location, we host free seminars on nutrition, fat loss and lifting weights for the Sydney locals. Please follow us on facebook to maintain awareness of our events!
We are motivated by the opportunity to give our gifts to the world. The Lord of the Rig himself (no, not Sauron) Geoff originally worked in the rat-race and has this to say about it:
“I didn't really feel like I was impacting people for the better. I really think I have a knack for coaching and bringing out the best in people and helping people change their lives.”
We have helped hundreds of locals in Sydney’s eastern suburbs
