Gym noise com­plaints

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

Func­tional Fit­ness Te Awa­mutu owner Wayne Bryant says the noise is not an is­sue.

“We’re un­der our deci­bel limit, we’ve been checked out by the coun­cil and we are good to go.

“It’s a bit ridicu­lous if you ask me. All those houses be­hind us are closer than the one per­son do­ing the com­plain­ing.

“None of the other neigh­bours are wor­ried — they’re all happy as. One of our mem­bers ac­tu­ally lives right be­hind us and her baby’s bed­room is right on our bound­ary and she can hardly hear us.”

Wayne says the premise had al­ready turned its mu­sic down.

“We’ve gone out of our way to turn ev­ery­thing down for her and she’s still com­plain­ing. To me it’s not an is­sue — she’s mak­ing a story out of noth­ing.

“Why stop peo­ple do­ing what they love, just be­cause of one per­son? We’re just here to look after the health and well­be­ing of the Te Awa­mutu com­mu­nity.”

“When we took over CrossFit Waipa¯ on July 3 last year there were 17 mem­bers. Now we have 93. Ob­vi­ously some­thing is work­ing.

“I’ve told the coun­cil Kerry can have a free mem­ber­ship — we’ve done ev­ery­thing to make her happy.”
