Childcare

Are you wanting to get back into shape or build on your fitness level, but also need to be free to look after your children? Well you will be pleased to know that The Gym Tauranga is lucky enough to share the building with Active Kids Early Childcare Centre.

Although Active Kids is a separate business to The Gym we have organised to have two special discounted sessions per day for current The Gym members, 9am – 11am & 12pm – 2pm, Monday to Friday, for $10 per session only. If you’re WINZ eligible it can be as little as $2 per session! This means you can drop your little ones (0 – 6 years) off, where you know they are safe and having fun while you have time to yourself.

The philosophy of Active Kids Early Childcare Centre, is to encourage and support children/tamariki to have a passion for learning. Active Kids Early Childcare Centre creates a stimulating environment that provides fun activities, experiences and opportunities, both planned and spontaneous, with a program rich in content that is relevant to each child’s culture, lives and stages of learning.

TRX

Suspension training that was developed for the US Navy SEALS!

The TRX system is an expertly designed workout that delivers a fast and incredibly effective total body workout. The concept of the TRX suspension system is really simple: you use your hands or feet to partially suspend your body with the cables and your own body weight as resistance. The areas you work and the level you work at are defined by you and where you position your body on the cables.

Anyone and everyone can become a TRX master! Although developed with the US Navy SEALS in mind, you don’t have to be GI Joe/Jane to use the TRX suspension system.  It is user friendly and user defined, so you can train at any level for any goal. Easily master exercises/movements that develop strength, tone and condition your body. 

Unlike popular seated/stationary resistance machines where your body is static, the TRX system ‘wakes up’ all your muscles groups and forces them to work harder to hold you in position.
