St Andrews Church
Pump in the Park

A bit of exciting news – we are restarting classes!

While we can’t re enter the gym, at the current alert level we are able to hold classes outdoors as well as online.

We are allowed to have 9 people in a class plus the instructor – everyone will be at least 2 metres apart and there will be no sharing of equipment or hugging. All precautions will be taken as per government rules and Exercise NZ guidelines.

To start we will hold our BodyPump (Pump in the Park), Circuit (HIIT the Circuit) and Senior Circuit (Seniors in the Sun) classes outdoors. Our Pilates classes will remain via Zoom with Sam Aley. If you are a Les Mills BodyBalance, BodyCombat or Core fan then you can check out TVNZ on Demand for a selection of classes.

The generous trustees of the St Andrews Church in the Matakana Country Park have allowed us to use the beautiful grounds to hold our classes. Try not to be distracted by the view – a picture perfect wedding spot (Matakana Weddings).  The church is just over the other side of the bridge from the gym and to the left.

  • Of course classes are subject to cancelation due to weather or lack of bookings. A decision will be made up to 30mins before the class.
  • You must book into classes on line using the timetable page or our App. Contact Joy on Ph 0212112118 or training@fitnessmatakana.co.nz if you have any problems.
  • When you arrive for your class please scan in and be wearing a mask. Your mask can be removed once we begin working out. Then must put back on when putting any equipment away and exiting.
  • For Pump in the Park and HIIT the Circuit classes please bring either your yoga mat or a beach towel.

Pilates with Swiss Balls – Tuesdays at 10.20am

Our Tuesday Mat Pilates class is changing to focus on Pilates exercises using a Swiss Ball.

Please note: If you are unsure about using a swiss ball, all exercises also have a non ball based option.

If you love your Pilates but are looking for a change then this could be the lift you need. The Swiss ball is an aide to Pilates exercises and can bring you to a new range of movement. You are connecting your mind to your muscle movements, strengthening your core muscles and improving posture through slow controlled movements.

If you have a swiss ball please bring it along. As we have limited balls available bringing your own means you can be sure of having the correct size. If your ball has been sitting unused for a while we are happy to pump it up for you. As a basic guide you want your to be high enough that when you sit on it your knees are slightly lower than your hips.  (Ball sizes: 55cm Short; 65cm Average; 75cm Tall)
