Te Ratonga Hākinakina | Rec&Sport are pumped to announce a price freeze on our 12mth memberships, and a price drop in all of our other membership types – so you can make good on those new year health and wellbeing resolutions!
First, a reminder of why exercise is good for you
The benefits of exercise are many , both physical and mental. That great feeling when you finish an exercise session (from endorphins released) can keep you trucking for several hours. It will increase your concentration almost immediately after – just make sure you rehydrate and have a healthy snack or lunch within two hours of finishing, to avoid the dreaded crash!
Location Location Location
We’re on campus, so we’re convenient to where you work. If you drive, you’ve already found your park. You could even park your car outside our doors in the morning, making it even harder for you to walk by without a quick nip in the building to workout!
Low cost but great value
We’re now even more affordable! Our full price, full access membership for UC & UCSA staff for 12months remains $439 – a fantastic 40% saving on our full community rate. For 2021, we’ve reduced the price of our 3 & 6 month memberships ($118 & $225), and also our salary deduction options ($20 per fortnight), to make it more accessible for all. Don’t forget, if you’re a TEU or PSA Union member, you also get a further $100 per annum discount (pro-rata).
EVEN BETTER, if you know that you’ll get your activity in before 3pm, you can save further with our off-peak membership rates. Check out our staff memberships page for all your options. Which membership is cheapest? Our 12mth off-peak membership, which works out to a mere 0.739 cents per day! Off-peak means you get to use everything like a full member, but you must enter the building before 3pm each day.
Lots of inclusions
Your membership gets you in the door. Check out our inclusions – most group fitness classes, casual court use, cardio, weights and the climbing wall. We even loan sports equipment (balls and racquets) for free. If you’d like to try some of our additional services (like Small Group Training, Zone Classes (FIT50 and Spin), Run Canterbury or getting a bespoke fitness programme, these come at a small, but very competitive price.
Still not sure?
No problem – why not try a 2 week trial? We usually charge $25 for this service, but for UC & UCSA staff we don’t. Simply come over with your UC Staff ID Card, sign the appropriate forms, and we’ll hook you up for 2 weeks.
We want to help our UC community improve their wellbeing this year, so help us and take the first step!
