Welcome to your gym

WITT students studying for a New Zealand Certificate in Exercise at WITT have been helped this year by 20 tutors volunteering to be their “clients”.

That’s the tutors taken care of - now it’s the turn of the students.

Tutor Kieran McKendry says the WITT gym facilities are available for all students aged 16 and over, and he would like to see more of them take advantage of the $50 a semester membership.

The gym is downstairs in D-Block – and it may be that many potential gym-goers are unaware it’s there.

Kieran says the facilities have been upgraded recently by making use of two adjoining rooms which also allow more light in.

The gym is open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and from 8am to 4pm on weekends.

Students simply complete a form to apply for gym access and once they have completed an induction training with one of the WITT tutors they may use the gym.

“It a great facility to have on campus, and I would love to see it busy,” Kieran says.

Kieran and fellow tutor Peter Napanoy will also offer ongoing advice to students who make use of the gym.

If you are interested in making use of the gym, contact Kieran on k.mckendry@witt.ac.nz or head down to the gym and take a look at what’s on offer.
