Former NRL player Daniel Conn is set to front court for a one-day hearing over allegations of intimidation and stalking, destroying property and breaching an AVO.

The 34-year-old former face behind fitness giant F45 is charged with a string of offences in relation to a personal apprehended violence order.

The provisional AVO was taken out by police on behalf of Sydney gym owner Simon Maree at the end of last year.

Conn fronted court on Monday to have his hearing set for August 20 before a magistrate at Downing Centre Local Court after he was charged with stalking and intimidation, destroy property and breaching a personal violence order in December.

Police will allege in court Conn intentionally damaged a glass panel window at the Hustle Boxing Gym in Potts Point.

Hustle Boxing, described as a luxury group boxing start-up, has been bankrolled by publican Arthur Laundy, sporting identities and financiers. Conn was employed to help promote the business in its infancy but is no longer associated with it.

The personal apprehended violence order, that police will allege was breached, had conditions stating Conn must not assault or threaten Maree, stalk, harass or intimidate him, intentionally or recklessly destroy or damage any property that belongs to or is in his possession.

It also banned Conn from going within 100m of any place where Simon Maree lives or works, including the gym at the centre of the allegations.

Conn claimed he and Maree were in a dispute over wages for him and his partner Ellice Whichello.

The former Sydney Roosters player previously dated British reality TV star Vicky Pattison and appeared alongside her on season one of Ex on the Beach.

Conn pleaded not guilty at the first mention of the matter on February 3.
