Our Story

291 King Street Newcastle

The Gym on King is an all in one fitness space located at 291 King Street in Newcastle. Inspired by the rich history of the building which was once home to Gibson's British Iron Foundry, where Novocastrians laboured with steel using the most modern machinery of their time. The Gibson family continuously innovated products to meet the needs of the Newcastle community, leaving behind a legacy of strength, innovation, and productivity.

How The Gym on King Came to Be

The idea behind Gym on King was born out of a desire to create a fitness centre that was more than just a place to work out. It was envisioned as a community hub that would bring people together and help them to achieve their fitness goals in a welcoming and supportive environment.

We are a hybrid model, unique in our approach. We have taken all the best features from Group Personal Training studios and added an open-door policy on the rest of the facilities, so members get the best of both worlds!

The founders of Gym on King, Newcastle Locals, and fitness enthusiasts themselves are excited, because after years of building, planning and hard work, The Gym on King is opening!

Our Difference

The Gym on King is part of Newcastle's first mixed-use development. Owned and built by local Novocastrian Darren Nicholson and his team whose goal is to create a vibrant and spirited inter-generational space for families, workers, corporate guests and visitors to Newcastle.

Originally a carpark, the new development includes The Gym on King, a 55 place childcare centre, fresh food café, 7000sqm of commercial space and 50 boutique serviced apartments (so your friends and family can visit you in Newy!)
