Moving Well gym membership

For $20 a week you can have a Moving Well gym membership that gives you access to the gym, swimming pool, and a wide range of fitness classes. A membership also includes a personalised fitness plan tailored to your needs, plus you'll get the additional benefits the Living Well membership plan provides.

A Moving Well membership also includes a personalised fitness plan tailored to your needs. We’ll also show you how to use the gym equipment for the best results. Your fitness and programme will be reviewed every 12 weeks and subsequently updated when you feel it's necessary.

The specialised gym equipment is manufactured in Finland by HUR. The equipment is pneumatic, meaning no need to use pin or plate-loaded machines. The equipment also has range limiters, meaning you can exercise safely without moving your joints into unsafe ranges of motion. This makes the machines ideal for building strength without aggravating your joints. We also have fully accessible cardio and strength gear as well as a state-of-the-art balance trainer. 

You’ll never get bored with our classes because there are so many! The schedule includes circuit training, yoga, stretch and core, aquarobics, aqua blast, strength and balance, sit fit, tai chi and a walking group. 


Moving Well gym is WINZ accredited.

The swimming pool is accredited under the Quality Pools Certification with Recreation Aotearoa.
