Everything you need in your local gym
Our boutique community Health and Fitness Centre has everything you need to do your ideal work out.
We keep our membership numbers to a minimum so you won't be waiting in line to use the machines or equipment.
Our rower, treadmill, upright bike, and cross-trainers are ideal for a cardiovascular workout, and our fully equipped weights section has everything you need for your muscle work.
Our dumbells range from 1kg through to 25kg. There is an ezy-bar and a long-bar that can take whatever weight you wish to challenge yourself with. Both benches incline and decline, with one allowing for leg extension and leg curl.
A dual-cable machine, Matrix Smith-machine, and a combined pull-up/triceps dip apparatus adds further exercise options.
For greater variety and stability focus work we have swissballs in a range of sizes that can be used with and without weights. Swissballs, medincine balls, balance cushions and wobble boards add variety to your workout and help with balance, stability, toning and core training.
After your work out be sure to use our foam rollers to loosen off and stretch out your tight muscles.
Need a hand getting motivated to work out? Our group exercise classes are the ideal place to build strength and fitness, learn new skills and make new friends. We also offer personal training options that are tailored to meet your fitness goals and help to fast track your fitness and push you harder.
Nestled in the heart of the Maungaraki suburb, it’s likely you won’t have far to go home after your workout, however our on-site bathroom and shower make it easy to freshen up after your work out if need be.
Celebrating 11 years
Since opening it’s doors in November 2006, O2 Exercise Health Club has grown to be an integral part of the local Maungaraki community, as well as a great facility for people from the wider area who are looking for something different and personal from their health facility.
Founders Nikki Braniff-Jones and Reno Jones launched O2 Exercise with a goal to run a boutique style fitness club that was accessible and conveniently located, and could support people with their health, fitness and sporting goals in a warm, friendly environment.
After 11 successful years at the heart of O2 Exercise, in November 2017, Nikki and Reno decided it was time to say good bye to the O2 Exercise community and move on to new adventures.

O2 Exercise began a whole new chapter on 27th November 2017, when Toni Patchett, took over as the proud new owner.
