"Wow this place has really improved, stays nice and cool inside and although it is a smaller gym its not as busy and it gives you more time with the staff for 1-on-1 sessions or help with unfamiliar machine. They say that this gym is for REAL people and it's true! no gym buffs here just everyone of all shapes and sizes doing their best to get in shape! I feel much more confident at this gym and am happy to try new things as I don't feel so embarassed by my looks :)"
" Great gym facility upstairs, have classes on weekdays. Have a sunbed. Downstairs have a full range of facilities from basketball, badminton. There are plenty of rooms for functions from 1st to 21 st birthday parties. They also have an excellent holiday and after school program. Well worth checking out when you have the time"

"CFEA is one of many crossfit 'boxes' that exist in Auckland. Crossfit is not a gym membership; it is literally a lifestyle. It helps improve motivation, determination, self-efficacy, healthier dieting, a stronger body (in all functional aspects!) and provides a great sense of community and friendship. I started Crossfit last year in November, and I came in with expectations of something way out of my league and very scary! However, Crossfit is all about the individual, and everything you do can be modified by proffessional coaches to fit you perfectly; being an injury, a preference, or other interference. All workouts are scaled so anyone can enjoy working hard and feeling the benefits of becoming a functional, powerful human being! For more info on Crossfit, I reccomend checking out the 'paleo' and 'primal' diet, as that is part of the lifestyle crossfit employs. Eat natural, move natural, lift natural! Check out crossfit and give it a go, i guarantee whole-heartedly you will be very surprised. In a good way! "
" Super friendly, wickedly helpful and really knowledgeable staff with a true passion for what they do. The On Ramp course is well worth the money, and although tough is just the challenge you need to kick start your fitness. I've tried boot camps etc in the past but this is learning the techniques in a supportive and fun environment. Totally worth it! "
" Having had no knowledge of what crossfit was all about, I signed myself up to an On-Ramp beginners course for 4 weeks and have recently just finished and joined the big boys class. Aaron is a fantastic coach who steps you through all the simple techniques and exercises so no matter what fitness level you are in currently, you can definitely start somewhere and improve from there. I'd highly recommend to book in for a free trial class on Saturdays at 8:30am to find out what the craze is all about!"

" Thomas the trainer is awesome! Makes everyone work hard, and have fun while they are doing it. It's the best Boot Camp in town!"
" LOVE SWEATCAMP! The bootcamps in the mornings are a great way to start your day, you'll get results and improve your fitness and health in all areas. I was becoming so bored and unmotivated at my gym and am so thankful i found sweatcamp to get me going again and stay in shape! They really care about your goals and will do everything to help you achieve them, all you have to do is make the commitment and put in the effort. You'll never get bored, there's always something new and challenging each week. Its addictive! Give it a go."

"Cardio room, women’s studio, weights room and a variety of excellent classes. Working out at this gym never gets boring."
" A group of enthusiasts regularly head off on a 45 minutes journey in the RPM studio based cycle craze. Benefit from a unique group atmosphere and professional coaching without competitive pressure. It’s great fun to music - without having to learn coordinated moves. RPM is an awesome workout for improving your aerobic capacity and anaerobic strength. The music driven terrain pushes your body to burn calories and tone your muscles. Under the guidance of your instructor and motivation from your team, you will experience slow climbs, short sprints and recovery spins that present no barrier to coordination or boredom."

"Every so often Life puts you on the path to self-discovery and life-changing experience. In my case, Life marched me through the doors of The CrossFit Power Station on Moore Street in Howick, and into the disciplining yet caring hands of Cathy Halforty. I was at a very unhappy, unhealthy, and just plain sedentary point in my life five months ago (I am writing this in July 2013). At the time, I had gained almost 20 kilos prior to meeting Cathy and joining The Power Station. My wedding day was looming and I had exactly twelve weeks to fit into my wedding dress. I was in a desperate panic and willing to do anything and everything. From the start, Cathy was extremely honest with me and made it very clear that it was not going to be easy. I was immediately put on the 'Fat Blast Challenge' - a specially designed eating program; and was given a fitness plan that made me sweat just thinking about it. Two weeks into my weight loss journey - I shed almost 4 kilos! And I am proud to say that I did it the sensible, safe, and healthy way. Those twelve weeks were truly and utterly life changing. Looking back, not only did I manage to drop three dress sizes (I went from a size 16 back down to a size 10/12) and look better in my wedding dress than when I first bought it, I also managed to irrevocably changed my entire lifestyle and perspective on health and fitness, and become part of an amazing and dynamic community in the process. And I could not have done it without the constant support and encouragement of Cathy and my fellow Power Station CrossFitters. What makes The CrossFit Power Station so different from other traditional gyms is that it is not a 'gym'. There are no treadmills, no cross-trainers, no mirrors, or 'gym machines' of any kind (with the exception of rowing machines - that are used occasionally in certain work-outs). Our bodies are the machines. Cathy and Damian and their team are passionate about empowering each and every member - to utilize and develop their physical potential and capabilities; and push beyond their perceived limits. At the CrossFit Power Station, the main focus is improving and maintaining a good level of varied fitness, and strengthening and conditioning the body. As a young woman who had been on one crash diet after another since adolescence, I found it liberating and awe-inspiring to be surrounded by strong, fit, confident, and healthy women. Women who rejected the 'skinny ideal' in favor of a strong and empowered version of femininity. Since joining The CrossFit Power Station, I have gained immense respect for my body and become fitter, stronger (physically, mentally and emotionally), healthier and more social. I now have a regular, weekly training schedule that I actually look forward to, and participate in the various special events that are held for the CrossFit Power Station community. I guess you could say it's become my second home or my 'happy place'. Thank you Cathy and Damian and the Power Station Team! "

"I’m sure most of you know how Jetts works (as a 24-hour gym) - I love how all of the weights equipment is colour-coded so it’s very easy to use! Fantastic gym layout with nice, brand-new machines there. It makes going to the gym a pleasure, and if you go at staffed times, you’ll see how helpful and friendly the staff are. Awesome gym"
" Jetts is a 24 hours gym with access by swipe card. They are all brand spanking new with the best equipment and TV on all the cardio machines (go when Biggest Loser is on - it's a great motivator). They are usually unstaffed or staffed by one person at any given time but the rules and induction process mean that members respect the gym and it is always spotless and clean. Not paying staff and not running classes means that you're not paying for all those things that most of us don't use anyways so you can get a membership for around $10 a week."

"Zumba Classes with licensed Instructor Janine Duffy every Wednesday at 7pm at Our Lady Star of the Sea School is a great way to combine fun, exhileration and laughter whilst attaining a great physical work out and physical benefits of regular exercise. Although Jeff previously taught Zumba Fitness for a couple of months at the school it is now taken by Janine Duffy licensed Zumba Instructor www.janineduffy.zumba.com. Classes are $10 with a concession card available (strict time limit applies) Secondary Student discount $5 with ID. Telephone 02102345310. Classes are open to all levels of fitness, ages, gender, dance abilities and experience. No co-ordination required."
" A great work out that will leave you feeling like you have achieved a good physical workout plus enjoyed some "me" time. Time when you can only think of what you are doing right at that moment instead of the normal concerns and worries of day to day living. Because of the form of queing and directing - all eyes are on the instructor so there is no time to be looking at anyone else so this leaves you free to let loose & party like you just don't care!"

They have the best CrossFit classes and offer other programs: Bootcamp, Boxing, Kettlebell, Low Intensity and Martial Arts for kids and adults. it doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an elite athlete, Cathy and Damian's dedication to helping everyone achieve their goals is great to be part of.

"Been a member here now since they opened. Definitely glad I made the move. Facilities are always well maintained and clean, staff are always friendly and happy to answer questions. This gym does get busy at peak times (just like all gyms), but being open 24/7 means theres plenty of time to come when its quiet."
