Happy Birthday to us!

Monday, 12th September 2016

This week First Place Fitness turns 10! Ten years of bringing that First Place feeling to the Hamilton fitness scene.

It doesn't seem that long ago we were turning the key in the lock at 614 Te Rapa Road with big plans to shake up the way a fitness centre serves its' members.

Along the way we've continued to be innovators in the industry. We were the first 24hr gym in Hamilton and are still the only gym in New Zealand to house an electronic weights machine circuit, which safely and effectively introduces newbies to the benefits of weight training. Being named Best Gym in New Zealand just 3 years into our journey was welcome recognition that we were on the right track. We're also forging ahead with our childcare offering - while many gyms have closed their childcare because it may not be profitable, we maintain a commitment to service and support local parents in their health and fitness endeavours.

You may have noticed a new logo crop up in the last couple of weeks. First Place Fitness Club is now First Place Fitness - your 24/7 health club. Our new byline reflects a more holistic approach to health and fitness. We're excited to be moving your club forward in this direction - watch this space for some exciting news!

First Place Fitness is so proud to have created a club where people from all walks of life can gather together and work on bettering their health and fitness. Building a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, while maintaining professionalism and quality of training has always been our top priority. You don't need to wear lycra to work out here, but if you do that's cool too.

Thinking back through the years to 2006, we've been so lucky with our amazing staff both past and present. You all know who you are, so a big thanks for making us who we are today. Special mention to Mei-Lan, our longest serving staff member after Tony. I think that calls for cake!

Above all we need to show our gratitude to all our incredible members. Seeing you all discovering fitness for the first time or smashing out some major goals is what makes this all worthwhile. THANK YOU!!!

OPEN DAY - Thursday 15th September 2016 10am - 7pm

Make sure you set some time aside to visit the club during our 10th birthday Open Day.

You could WIN a His 'n' Hers Pamper Hamper just for walking through the door. We're also hosting SportsFuel taste testings and the Ranfurly Sheild will be in residence for photos.

At specific times during the day we have free physio assessments thanks to Lifestyle Physiotherapy and free 15 minute massages from Emma Jane's Beauty Therapy.

All classes are free for anyone to jump in on Thursday. Check out Thursday's classes and plan your visit.

Our in-house competitions run throughout the day with an event for everyone - be it maxing out on Pull Ups or taking a killer selfie. Just attempt anything to go in the draw to WIN a NUTRI NINJA BLENDER and PT SESSION. Prizes for the top male and female in every event include PT Sessions, Protein, First Place Hoodies, Massage Vouchers and Nutri Ninja Blenders!!!

Our BIGGEST EVER 48HR SALE also kicks off on Thursday - deals are available online until midnight Friday or at the gym until 7pm. These specials are a once in 10 years kinda deal so now is time to take advantage and grab a membership at our lowest ever prices.
