New Zenith gym own­ers think big

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATION - SHAUN EADE

The new own­ers of Zenith Fit­ness have big plans for its fu­ture.

Kelsey Wood­mass, Darryl Dick­er­son, Natasha McConchie and Stu­art McConchie took charge of the gym ear­lier this month.

Wood­mass will look af­ter the day-to-day run­ning of the gym as its ad­min­is­tra­tion mar­ket­ing man­ager.

The oth­ers will con­tinue their jobs, with Natasha McConchie the of­fice man­ager at Sum­mer­set, Stu­art McConchie work­ing for Booth Trans­port and Dick­er­son the trans­port man­ager for ELE Group.

The quar­tet said they had no plans to make ma­jor changes early on.

‘‘We want to foster the cul­ture that is al­ready here. It al­ready has a great cul­ture,’’ Natasha McConchie said.

Zenith, on Tre­maine Ave, was es­tab­lished by Stephen Hoey and Liz Baker in 2013, but the cou­ple an­nounced they were sell­ing it in De­cem­ber.

Darryl Dick­er­son said it was a busi­ness that he had been eye­ing up, even be­fore it had been listed.

‘‘I looked at a few other busi­nesses and this one came along, which hap­pened to be my gym,’’ he said. From there he en­listed his part­ner, Wood­mass, and the McConchies.

The gym has about 1300 mem­bers and the quar­tet hopes to in­crease that fur­ther.
