The 130 sqm apartment with a wrap around balcony sought $900 a week after the purchase, reflecting a strong six per cent yield for the fitness entrepreneur.

De Leede is based in the luxury Campbell Parade block The Bondi, having spent $6.15 million upgrading from the nearby Pacific Bondi apartment, where he’s still looking for a buyer.

Last year De Leede, who founded Fitness First in 1993, sold his former Hedges Avenue, Mermaid Beach investment mansion for $6,325,000.

He retains an apartment in the Burleigh Heads Aspect complex which he bought over a decade ago, as well as properties in Port Douglas and a Gold Coast hinterland estate.
