February 22, 2018 Whats On No Comments Email Email

This Autumn, start the day beneath the soaring sails of the Opera House as the sun rises over Sydney Harbour.

Sunrise on the Steps, the Sydney Opera House’s much-loved morning exercise program, returns from 13 March to 18 May, thanks to the support of Principal Partner Samsung.

The 10-week program, which follows a sold-out 2016 trial, will offer 7.00am classes in Circuit Training (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and Yoga (Wednesdays and Fridays). Classes will be led by a team of local professional trainers including Crawf Weir, Janis Blums and Adam Trama and are suitable for all fitness levels, at the affordable price of $25 per person. Book online here.

For the first time, the exercise program will fuse fitness with technology, offering participants the chance to trial Samsung’s Gear Sport to experience how technology can track and improve the way we work out.

Jade McKellar, Sydney Opera House Director of Visitor Experience, said: “I can’t think of a more spectacular way to start the day than on the steps of the Opera House as the city comes to life around you. After a hugely successful trial two years ago, we’re really excited to partner with Samsung to bring back this popular morning exercise program. It’s an entirely new way for Sydneysiders and tourists to experience and rediscover the city.

“March is the perfect time to reignite New Year’s wellbeing resolutions and find focus at the start of the day in one of Sydney’s most inspiring and breathtaking locations.”

Class participants will have the chance to win the stylish, waterproof and Android/IOS compatible Samsung Gear Sport to help them continue to track their progress and reach their exercise goals.

Garry Mcgregor, Director of IT and Mobile, Samsung Australia, said “The blending of exercise with technology continues to encourage Australians to move more, eat better, and live a healthy life. Sunrise on the Steps offers Sydneysiders a unique way to start the day and we can’t wait see how participants enjoy tracking their fitness on the Samsung Gear Sport during the classes.”

Classes are conveniently located in the CBD, with $10 flat rate on parking at the Sydney Opera House Wilson Car Park offered exclusively to attendees (exit before 10am).
