Free Spin and FIT50 at the RecCentre until the end of 2022!

Are you ready for your next physical challenge?  Why not try our Spin and FIT50 classes – FREE until the end of the year for RecCentre members (usually, it’s $3)  

Just like F45 but save your dollars for your holidays  

FIT50 is Functional Interval Training for 50mins.  It’s a hard core circuit and HIIT style class, but you modify as you need (we’ll do our best to push you for more).   Check out our wee video online .   The room has changed a bit since we made it, but you get the idea.   We limit our classes to 12 people in our FunZone for a sweat sesh like no other.   Think…kettlebells, ski erg, jump boxes, battle ropes, assault bike and more.   Suitable for all levels, as long as you bring your best effort!   We got you. 

Book in via the app, and visit reception to check-in.  We’ll loan you a towel (you’ll need it).  Arrive a little early, like 5-10mins, and we’ll set you up with a HR monitor if you don’t have your own, and connect you to the big screen.  That keeps you accountable!   Why pay the big bucks in the boutique gyms, when you can get (much) the same workout for free?

You SPIN me right round baby, right round, like a record player… 

What can we say about SPIN? What a class!  Be entertained, motivated and dragged along the imaginary roads for 50mins (45min at lunchtime).   Our instructors pick some (mostly) great tunes, a few questionable ones, and put some great moves to it, all on the bike.  It’s low impact, which means it’s great for the joints.  Because you control the resistance and the speed of your own legs, you can take it easy or go hard.     It’s also dark.   With party lights.   Hit the back row if you prefer not to be seen.  Ooh, and wear white or flouro, cause you’ll glow! 

We have 24 bikes, so book in via the app, and visit the reception to check-in.  We’ll loan you a towel and token for entry.  If it’s your first class, arrive early (like 5-10mins) so we can set you up on the bike correctly.  It’s not fun for the muscles and joints if your bike doesn’t ‘fit’ properly.  

Friendly and qualified staff delivering you an exceptional exercise experience! 

Rest assured, you are in safe hands.  All of our instructors have exercise qualifications, or are closely supervised whilst they are obtaining them in training.  We have years of experience as well, with some of our teachers clocking up more than 25years experience each and presenting at national conferences and training workshops. We even have an award winning NZ Group Fitness Instructor of the Year in our ranks.  

If you’ve got any questions, just ask our team or flick us an email.  Or better yet, take the plunge and we’ll see you in the gym this side of Christmas!
