Health&Sports Fitness Club is offering a three-day fitness pass to fitness enthusiasts who want a taste of all they have to offer. The trial allows use of all the club’s facilities, from their group fitness classes to the heated 25m pool, gym, sauna and more. The trial is valid over seven days.

Health&Sports is the largest fitness gym in Kingsland. Having just installed the world’s best gym equipment by Technogym, they have become the largest Technogym equipped gym in New Zealand. Anyone choosing Technogym products can be rest assured that they are training on equipment of possibly the highest level, just like that of a professional athlete. Technogym is able to help people from beginners to professionals achieve their sporting and wellbeing goals.

Their facilities include a spacious gym floor, cardio area (including two stair machines), over 50 classes each week, a 25m heated pool, sauna, childminding and more.  The group fitness workouts range from cardio and dance workouts to ultimate resistance training workouts, postural alignment, core strengthening and more.

More and more Kiwis are using multiple gyms for specialised training. Exercise New Zealand chief executive Richard Beddie said recently one in five gym-going Kiwis own more than one gym membership because the number of specialised studios and clubs that focus on a particular type of exercise had increased over the past eight years. Beddie said the gym industry in New Zealand was worth $578 million last year and is growing at a rate of three to five per cent annually. 

In terms of global gym membership rates, New Zealand punches above its weight. Research from the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association shows that 13.6 per cent of Kiwis belong to a gym, making it the tenth highest percentage in the world. Sweden tops the list, with 21.6 per cent of the population owning some kind of gym membership. Beddie said owning multiple memberships is more common in the US than it is here, with as many as 35 per cent of those who go to the gym owning a variety of memberships.

Health&Sports Fitness Clubs include free weights, machines, cardio gear, indoor pool and the kids club. It is one of the few gym facilities in Auckland to offer a childminding service while parents work out. It has free parking for members. The club opens 5.15 am from Monday to Friday. It is open from 7 am on the weekends.
