The Authentic

1980s freestyle aerobics workout

About us

What is Retrosweat?

Retrosweat is an hour of power to the best beats of the era. Authentically and delightfully kitsch, it’s a workout Jane Fonda would be proud of. Each week in two Sydney venues, we grapevine, squat, and star-jump to work up a good ol’ fashioned sweat that boosts our cardio health, burns fat, tones muscle, and improves flexibility. There are no wrong moves, no bad outfits and no bad moods, because it’s impossible to leave us without feeling high on life. Come one, come all, come solo or with the squad – this is an inclusive community and a space for self-care, creative expression, joy, and catharsis.

You wanna dance with somebody?

Join us in Sydney, on demand, or we’ll come to you!


We host our classic 1980s freestyle aerobics classes in two Sydney locations with our All-Star instructors, or if you prefer, sweat on-demand and at home if you wanna fly solo. Flip through the Retrosweat Home Video library and find our 200+ catalogue online for a when-it-suits-you workout. We also run events tailored to you, for whichever decade you love the most, and the experience you’re after.


We take all our bookings through Mindbody Online, which you can do right here. Or download the app!
