New Fitness Centre for Clendon Community Centre

Fitness fanatics living in the Clendon area have reason to celebrate. Manukau City Council is pleased to announce the opening of a new Fitness Centre on the 4 November at the Clendon Community Centre.

This development is the result of customer demand from the large number of local youth interested in sport and fitness. It will also increase community access to health and wellness services. The activity room has been converted into the fitness room and two new staff members have been appointed to run the Centre.

Recreational programmers, Robert Young and Doris Ta ala, both come with lots of experience in leadership, running training programmes and assisting community groups with recreational activities. Current staff are undergoing training in this area, so they can also assist with the Centre. All the staff are very excited about the upcoming opening and helping new members with their fitness and training requirements.

Centre Manager, Paul Chidzero, says “We have been working towards establishing the Fitness Centre for some time and look forward to welcoming new and existing members. The establishment of the Centre has been in response to a growing demand for this type of facility. This is in keeping with a global trend, echoed here in New Zealand, towards a healthy lifestyle which includes maintaining a regular fitness programme.

“The equipment available for cardio work will be tread mills, cross trainers, bikes and rowers. For weight fitness training there will be pin loaded weight equipment coupled with a range of free weights.”
