The Verdict

Just when you thought the fitness scene in Auckland couldn’t get any better, new kid on the block Playground Fitness is taking it up a notch by putting the fun back into fitness. Think nightclub-inspired lighting, state-of-the-art cardio and weights equipment, immersive music, and short 'n' snappy sets that'll get your heart rate up in no time.

Founded and run by personal trainer to professional athletes and celebrities, Rhys Jolly, you know you’re in safe hands. Rhys is known for getting results, and this new space is no exception—if you’re looking to take your fitness to the next level, then a session here is a sure-fire way to do it. Each time you train you’re given a heart rate monitor to strap around your chest so you can literally see how hard you’re working through every minute. If you need a little extra motivation, get your crew together for a team sweat—the screen shows when you reach a new zone of difficulty, so you can race each other to the next set. Whether it’s a strength-based day or a cardio burnout, each class has you working hard from start to finish.

After your workout refuel at the onsite café, The Lab. With Allpress coffee on hand, all your pre and post-workout caffeine needs are sorted. Ensuring all those #gains don’t go to waste, the café also serves fresh juices, kombucha, treats from The Raw Kitchen, and smoothies—with added protein if that’s your jam. 

So forget about waiting for New Year’s to begin that fitness journey—download the Playground Fitness app and book yourself in for a session today. Your first class is free, so there’s no excuse not to get your sweat on.
