The lavish property at Bronte which features a recreational centre, wine cellar and cocktail bar, saw bidding begin at an eye-watering $14million, before eventually ratcheting up to $17.7million.

Mr Deutsch founded the popular global gym franchise in 2012 and struck gold when Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg invested in F45 three years ago.

The gym junkie made a reported $67million in the subsequent business deal.

He initially listed the Bronte property – which he bought for $11.2million in 2018 – just before Covid hit in early 2020, but swiftly pulled the home amid talk the market was about to plunge.

The former equities trader also purchased a block of flats on Campbell Parade in Bondi with a price tag of $20.56million two years ago.

It is believed Mr Deutsch planned to knock down the flats and build a family home.

However, sources say he has gone cold on the idea and has been spotted looking at family homes in nearby Bellevue Hill.

The decision to not demolish the Bondi apartments has paid off handsomely, as they were recently valued at $25million.
