Gym’s motto is ap­peal­ing

South Taranaki Star - - STARS PAST - LAIRD HARPER

Anna Hau­paroa found a change in pace didn’t mean she had to forgo her fit­ness goals.

The key was find­ing the right gym. For six years Hau­paroa was im­mersed in the world of com­pet­i­tive dres­sage, daily rou­tines of train­ing and work around the sta­bles filled ev­ery spare mo­ment she could find. So when her chil­dren came along she had to forgo her well-prac­tised work­out pro­grammes in favour of rais­ing a happy and health fam­ily.

Then she found Ki Whanau IronMaori Haw­era Gym.

‘‘Both my hus­band and I were look­ing at go­ing to a gym but we weren’t keen on the usual mem­ber­ship schemes.

‘‘It doesn’t suit my busy lifestyle - if you can’t go for a week then that’s a waste of money.

‘‘Mean­while, here I pay per time and it makes it so much bet­ter.’’

The gym was formed to cre­ate a fam­ily-based, non-judg­men­tal en­vi­ron­ment to sup­port all lev­els, sizes and ages. Each mem­ber is sup­ported in achiev­ing their own goals while aim­ing for events such as IronMaori, or other sport­ing events.

‘‘The first two weeks I went I just did step, but I soon de­cided I wanted to do more.’’

Hau­paroa said the gym’s var­i­ous classes made it easy for her to find a rou­tine that suited her and she could change classes with­out any has­sle.

‘‘You can evolve it to suit your­self. This gym suits me to a tee.’’

Hau­paroa said the key fac­tor that makes her come back again and again is the gym’s motto of your race your pace.

‘‘For ex­am­ple with the spin class no one wor­ries if you don’t turn the dial up to make it hard.

‘‘I will get there and they ac­cept that I will get there.’’
