Bootcamp, Ballet and Boxing – four week courses start 18 November

Keen to get into your best health in summer?  Not sure where to start?  Any exercise is good for your health, but here’s why Small Group Training might be a good fit for you – and you don’t have to be a RecCentre member….read on!

Why SGT? 

  • Accountability – you commit for four weeks with your hard earned cash, you’re more likely to turn up.  The group is small, so they’ll notice if you’re missing !
  • Fun – it’s way more fun to workout in a group, the time will fly by.  And because it’s the same group of people each time, you may even make a few new friends and acquaintances
  • Value – personal training can be expensive, SGT is not!  Get a top notch supervised workout at a fraction of the price.   You don’t need to plan, just turn up and be willing to do the work.

Summer Memberships on Sale at the UC RecCentre – starts Cup Week!

Ah… the sweet hibernation of winter is long gone, along with excuses that it’s too cold, too wet, or too dark to exercise. Then came Spring, and we dusted off our walking shoes and took a few jaunty laps of Hagley Park to enjoy the cherry blossoms. Summer is just around the corner,  and with most of the students away, it’s a quiet time to get to the RecCentre to add to your wellbeing, all just a stone’s throw from your desk.

Perhaps you’ve been thinking about taking some yoga to relieve stress and pain, or zumba classes to dance away your ills? Maybe you’ve finally got yourself ready to ‘hit the gym’ to reap the benefits of adding muscles to your frame?  Whatever your ‘why’, summer is a great time to look for your ideal exercise at the UC RecCentre.

The Rec&Sport team – who run the RecCentre facility – aim to offer a variety of exercise options because we know that one size does not fit all!   Make no mistake, the best way to stick to an exercise plan that adds to your health is to find something that brings you joy!   Reflect on each activity you try and ask yourself if you beared it, or whether you really enjoyed yourself?  Keep trying and learning new things until you find what fits.

To help you explore the buffet of activities we have at the RecCentre, we’ve got a great Summer special for new members.  On top of a roughly 30% saving on the 3mth price, we’re adding on a free BCS (gives you a great baseline health assessment) valued at $20, and a free SteerMe ( a personalised programme to help you reach your goals and be really efficient with your time at the gym) valued at $35.      Head over to our website to read the full offer, terms and conditions. 

Need an exercise buddy?  Great idea!  Anyone can join the RecCentre, they just pay a little more than UC Staff do! This offer commences on Monday 11 November 2019, and finishes on Sunday 8 December 2019.  If you’re still on the fence, why not try a 14-day trial?   It’s free for UC staff, and $25 for everyone else. If you get onto it now, you’ll still have time to grab this great 3mth deal!

See you soon!
