The fitness centres are both located in high-profile locations – one in Auckland's central business district and the other in the suburbs. The two locations are being sold separately by Bayleys Real Estate - with just the land and buildings on offer in both instances.

First up is a 906sq m unit titled freehold property housing the Flex Fitness gymnasium at 15/103 Symonds Street in the city, which is being marketed for sale at auction on October 23.

Bayleys Auckland sales agents Millie Liang and James Chan said the gym premises were situated immediately beside, and linking to, the Cordis Hotel – with hotel guests receiving discounted rates for utilising the gym's facilities during their stay.

Ms Liang said the Flex Fitness tenancy perfectly suited the building's open plan commercial floor space – with the floor plate including a reception area various zones accommodating free weights, various exercise machines, and a non-member public waiting room.
