Thank You Kelly

This month, our group fitness and gym manager legend, Kelly will wave goodbye to us as she embarks on a new and exciting chapter in her life and career.

Gym and group Fitness Manager
Kelly Howarth

Kelly has literally been with us since the beginning. Back in 2010, before we even opened the doors she helped galvanize and lead a culture and atmosphere at Northern Arena that has been electric, inspiring, and infectious. Kelly has put her heart and soul into everything at Northern Arena with only one goal in mind; to help, inspire and put a smile on the face of the Northern Arena gym family members.

Fast forward 10 years, Kelly has constructed and run a comprehensive and full group fitness timetable with like-minded, inspiring instructors, covering all bases of fitness options including an incredible F2 Functional Training Studio and more recently the outstanding, outdoor training area and classes in The Yard. Kelly took the team to win the 2015 Large Exercise Facility of the Year Award at the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards. To top off the evening, she personally picked up the Group Fitness Pre-Choreographed Instructor of the Year as well. Kelly was also an integral part of the team to help win the Employer of Choice and Supreme Business award at the Westpac Auckland Business Awards in 2016.

After inspiring a new generation of group fitness instructors, gym-goers, gym instructors, personal trainers, and more, the loud little Aussie heads of to try something new and we wish her all the best for the future. Thankfully, she will still be at Northern Arena in a teaching capacity. If you have never been to one of Kelly's classes you are truly missing out on an experience like no other. So make sure you get online and book yourself into one of the most motivating group fitness classes you'll ever have.

From all the family at Northern Arena, thank you Kelly, we will miss you.
