Phoebe Burgess has reportedly sold the F45 gym in Bowral she secured in her divorce from retired NRL star Sam Burgess.

The Instagram influencer and mother-of-two, 31, made $250,000 from the sale, according to The Daily Telegraph on Friday.

The gym was transferred to new owners Rebecca Morgan and Paul Lewis on April 20.

The rugby league player, 31, had bought into the popular fitness franchise in a joint venture with Phoebe’s brother-in-law Gene Fairbanks in 2015.

Gene is married to Phoebe’s older sister Jemima.

Before Sam and Phoebe separated in late 2019, F45 Training Bowral had been owned by a group called S&G Active.

Sam was listed as a director and Gene as secretary, and both parties held a 50 per cent share of the business.

But this arrangement ended when the Burgesses finalised their divorce last month, and the F45 gym was transferred to Phoebe. 

The settlement saw Phoebe walk away with 70 per cent of the couple’s marital wealth, The Daily Telegraph reported at the time. 

The one-time journalist also kept a white SDVA Range Rover, valued at $100,000.

Sam is said to have retained ownership of a two-bedroom apartment in Sydney’s Little Bay, where his mother, Julie, lives.

‘Sam didn’t care about anything but the apartment for his mum to live in,’ a source said.

The Burgesses had sold their Lurline Bay property in Maroubra, a beachside suburb in Sydney’s east, in January for $5million.
