    Where to lift in Sydney CBD?

    I'm in Sydney this week, staying at the Amora on Jamison Street, the gym is tiny and basically just full of treadmills. Are there any pay-as-you-go gyms within walking distance? Don't need anything fancy. Also any recommendations on where I can get some clean meals would be much appreciated. Matt
