Celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori 2019 at the UC RecCentre

To celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2019 Maori Language Week at the UC RecCentre for 9 – 15 September, we’ve got some neat stuff for you to try.

Try a FREE Spin Class taught entirely in Te Reo. Join Huhana-Suzanne Carter on Wednesday 11 September at 10.30am, for a special Spin class, taught entirely in Te Reo. This class is open to anyone who’d like to try it, whether you’re a member of the RecCentre or not. No fees, just bring your student or staff ID and sign in at the gate.

Free Stuff for the WHOLE WEEK!
Need a towel? No sweat! Would you like to spin for free? Excellent. Just ask for either of these in Māori, and we’ll loan it to you absolutely free. Both offers valid all week, and all attempts rewarded.

He tāora mōku – Can I have a towel please?  Watch a video
He pāhi eke pahikara māku – Can I have a spin token please?  Watch a video

Head to our UC Rec&Sport youtube page (or use the direct links above) and hear Stacey Niao, one of our awesome team members, speak the questions in Te Reo.

Kia pai tō wiki!

Women’s only exercise hours

If you are a female, the gym can be a daunting or uncomfortable place.

Whether for cultural, confidence, or other reasons, it can be the last place you want to go to exercise.

We want you to feel comfortable in a space that is less intimidating, more supportive, and that meets cultural needs.

This week marks the first week of Women’s Only hours at the UC Recreation Centre.

Throughout this semester, Women’s Only hours will be available in specified areas of the Recreation Centre, to trial different times, equipment and the success of these hours to work out the best fit for the future.

Female fitness consultants and instructors will be available during these designated times to provide assistance, exercise ideas and any other questions that you may have. You can also book in for a one-on-one Train Me session with a female fitness consultant.

In addition, the Recreation Centre will offer free Teach Me classes, a small group session with a female fitness consultant designed to grow your knowledge around different methods of training, which can be booked at reception. Female only small group training classes will also be offered throughout term four.

We want you to live your healthiest life – and feel comfortable doing so.
