Stage 2, Getting Back to Normal(ish)


Group Fitness Instructor signalling Stage 2 Covid Alert Level
We're heading to Stage 2.

Great news that we will be moving to alert Stage 2 from Wednesday 10th November. Even though we are not opening our doors we are getting back into it.

From next Wednesday 10 November we will continue to operate our outdoor classes and outdoor gym sessions under the cover of our huge marquees in the Yard at the back of the building, just with larger capacity. This means more space and opportunities for everyone to workout. So, we are switching all memberships back on.

Unfortunately, we are NOT able to open our pools and we understand that this is not a preferred situation for everyone.

If you would like to further suspend your membership for another month from 10 November 2021 to 10 December 2021, please complete this form before Midnight Sunday 7th November.

Like always when we return, your health and safety is paramount whilst using the facilities.  The following explains what this means to you, and what we are doing to keep you safe:

  • We will be reactivating all memberships on Wednesday 10th November unless you choose to opt out.

  • At the current Covid Alert level stage, vaccinations are not currently required to attend the outdoor group fitness and gym session.

Northern Arena is required to follow the Governments vaccine mandate, which is to only allow access to fully vaccinated people, once we open the doors and have transitioned into the new traffic light system. This is a compulsory requirement on both our staff and members to continue to work and customers to attend the facility.

We will continue to do everything we can to keep our workplace, workmates, our whanau and communities safe.

  • We will send you a Jump Start 21 day program to help fight off lockdown.

  • We have over 60 live group fitness classes per week which must be booked via our online booking system.

  • Gym weights and cardio sessions available from 6am-6:30pm and must be booked via online booking system.

  • Outdoor exercise sessions are extended to a max of 25 people per bubble. These classes will now be part of your usual membership fees and you are not required to pay the $10 per class.

  • $10 pay as you go sessions will no longer be available.

  • If you are unable to make a session, please cancel your space for someone on the waitlist to take your place as soon as possible.

  • Please ensure you can scan-in using the Government QR codes at the entrance to the Yard.

  • It is recommended that you wear a mask to and from the class. (You do not need keep it on whilst exercising).

  • No facilities within Northern Arena will be open apart from coffee pick up and retail.

  • Your Group Fitness Timetable is “Live” and available for you to book now. Please note this timetable may change from week to week whilst we are in relevant alert levels. Please refer to the online timetable only as this will be current and live.

  • Please respect government guidelines regarding social distancing.

  • Our timetable allows for extra cleaning and set up time between sessions. If you have friends or family that would like to come down and take part in a workout, please contact the gym team

If you have compromised immunity or feeling unwell, we kindly ask you to stay at home.

Please know that all these health and safety procedures are in guidance to keep you safe to train!

Please be patient and kind to your fellow gym family. We can’t wait to see you back and training at Northern Arena.
