Gym’s motto is appealing
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.’’
