"I love Northern Arena because it is so well thought out. The kids can move up levels in their swimming lessons as soon as they are
able, so there is no mucking around in classes that are too easy. The facilities are warm and clean, which makes it so easy with
wee kids hopping in and out of the pool. Northern arena is awesome- friendly staff with amazing teachers. My son loves your swimming
school too & gets really excited when he's told 'we're going swimming today"
Rachael, 39, Mum of 5 year old Jack and part time customer services manager.
"Our daughter loves swimming every week and has been doing so since she was 5 months old and we don't want to stop anytime soon. It
has helped her development, co-ordination and social skills greatly and she looks forward to swimming each week."

"Northern Arena is great! Coming from a women's only gym I was a bit nervous at first, but it's been an easy transition and I've become
even more motivated. Such a great facility that caters for anyone of any fitness level. The trainers are encouraging and friendly,
the group exercise classes are really motivating and fun - and conveniently timed. It's got a great community vibe too!
