Icing on the cake for business
Selection in several categories in the upcoming New Zealand Exercise Awards is the icing on the cake for a Cromwell business celebrating its 10th anniversary.
NRG Health and Fitness is a semi-finalist in community excellence and education, while two personal trainers Jolene Haupt and Issac Boyes (aka Ginge) are semi-finalists in the up and coming personal trainer category, as well as small group training.
Owner Chantel Knox said the centre was celebrating its 10th anniversary and their selection to the semi-final stages in several categories endorsed their standing as a valued community health and fitness hub.
‘‘We are all about the community. We do a lot more small team training now and there is a lot more focus on treating the whole person - on health and wellness for everyone, not just the hardcore fit person. We are more focused on core and being fit for life.’’
Knox opened the gym in 2006, having completed a physical education degree with a double major, and teaching diploma.
The gym had a humble start, operating out of a shed, but the business moved to a space attached to the swim centre in 2008.
Birthday celebrations will be held at the gym on October 9 and will include a barbecue, bouncy castle, spot prizes, competitions - and lots more, she said.
