We want to make sure that our clubs are as safe and comfortable as possible, so due to Health regulations here is everything you need to know about visiting Fitzone in level 2:
All visits to our clubs will need to be pre booked. This is super easy and is done by simply calling your local club. Until we actually have staff members back in the club on Thursday, all bookings will need to be through Crystal on 027 925 6019.
Bookings are 60 minutes. The first 45 minutes is allocated training time, and the last 15 minutes is for our team to wipe down every piece of equipment before the next group of members enter the gym. This means that there is never more than 11 people in one group at at a time (including the staff member), and we can track and trace our members based o...
Unfortunately due to the recent updates with COVID-19 and with New Zealand moving to alert level 3, all of our clubs have been forced to shut for the time being. This also means our members will be unable to enter and use the gym.
This is a huge step and we know it will affect a lot of our members on their health and fitness journeys, however we know that it is essential for our communities and for our Country for this to happen, and we are confident that we can continue to help our Fitzone family continue to smash their goals even if it is outside of the gym 💙
Every direct debit membership payment will be suspended from tomorrow onwards, and will not become active again until we can resume as normal. Any pay in full membership will also be adjusted and extended when we are able to open again.
For the last two years, at the start of the year at Fitzone, every member of the staff makes a goal that they would like to achieve in the year, something that challenges them and pushes them out of their comfort zone. Ideally something you’ve always wanted to do, but feel like it’s too big for you to achieve, something you put on the back burner.
At the start of last year, I wasn’t able to swim. I hadn’t done a length of the pool since I was about 14 in school where I couldn’t even get to the end without stopping
5 years down the track in 2018 and I obviously still couldn’t swim
Swimming was definitely going to be a challenge for me
Swimming was definitely out of my comfort zone!!!!!! 😬
Swimming was definitely something I would love to be able to do, but how would I possibly learn without being terrible to start with?
Honesty hour! As the winter months are still in full swing, finding time, energy and motivation to work out will become increasingly difficult. It’ll be dark, wet and bitterly cold so of course it’s going to be a struggle to drag yourself out of bed or the office to burn off those comfort food calories. Luckily for you, we have found a list of fitness hacks to make getting cramped and clammy that little bit more appealing…
1. Plan Ahead – pack your gym bag the night before or better yet, if you’re an early riser, sleep in your kit! You’re more likely to stick to your schedule if you’re prepared.
2.H.O.C (HIIT Over Cardio) – spending 90 minutes on a treadmill won’t sound attractive to even the speediest of marathon runners. Make things a little more exciting by switching to a high intensity interval training circuit....
We all love the weekends. Relaxing can be great for your body which in turn supports your goals, but are you one of those people that are incredibly strict on your food and exercise all week then when Friday night hits you find yourself reversing all the good you have done in those two and a half days and are back to square one on Monday? Or worse…. Heavier?
Whilst we might always ‘start again on Monday’, a weekend of bingeing can easily provide more than enough calories to find ourselves 1kg heavier when we get on the scales at the start of the week. So we struggle and bust our butts in order to see the scales reduce during the week only to instantly put it all back on over the weekend. It is no secret that overeating weekends are difficult to avoid for people with weight loss...
You have probably heard the saying a goal that is not written down is just a dream? Well I use to be a dreamer…. I really wanted to believe I was creating strong goals and then working hard to achieve them but really, they were dreams. Now that i think more about that statement...How much thinking is going on in your head? Having your goals up there too could make it quite crowded. Goals are things that you don’t want to get muddled up with other day to day things like, what to make your kids for lunch, or what you are going to wear to next week’s big meeting. They need to be prioritised. Time needs to be set aside and not rescheduled or shifted. Ultimately with our busy schedules it is too difficult to achieve this all from our minds.
If that is in fact how you set your goals then the question is….. How bad do you...
When you join a gym, the thought of feeling fit and healthy are usually are the things that you think of before anything else, right? Well, what if I told you there is another type of strength that health and fitness can bring? Inner strength is something that you are not born with, but something you must develop, just like other muscles in your body. However, it is just as important to your training. If you’re already starting to think “inner strength, I’m not sure I have any of that”. Well you do! It takes inner strength to join a gym and start your journey. That’s where I started mine.
Inner strength is so completely underrated, I don’t even know where to begin. Becoming strong mentally, as well as physically, is a MASSIVE benefit of exercise, and one of the main reasons I got involved in the ‘Health and fitness...
