Major gym chain Recreation has opened a new 24 hour gym under the brand RecXpress at 261 Huntingdale Road Oakleigh on the edge of the Huntingdale retail strip and moments from Huntingdale strain station.

The five-year deal was negotiated by Crabtrees Steven Salopek and Rodney King. Steven Salopek has been working with the chains owners for a while to source new sites. He said “The 330sqm showroom was formerly occupied by an electrical retailer and perfectly suited the gyms new format.”

The property was recently sold by Rodney King to a private investor keen to secure a long term tenant and was thrilled when Recreation came knocking. “It was a great outcome for both parties” he said “They were keen to locate themselves in the evolving Oakleigh/Huntingdale area, which has seen major changes over the past few years with many new businesses moving in. The area is very central and close to the Monash M1 Freeway between Chadstone Shopping Centre and Monash University.”
