The story of the Olympic Pools & Fitness Centre dates back to 1940 when New Zealand’s first 50 metre swimming pool was installed. In 1950 the venue played host to the Commonwealth Games – then the Empire Games – and in 1957 our waters were home to Philippa Gould, who produced New Zealand’s very first swimming world record. In 1994 we revamped and reopened the facility, keeping the building’s traditions and values alive. Today our venue is still state-of-the-art and our friendly team is helping people just like you to set their own records.
Newmarket’s Home of Fitness and Recreation
We combine our state-of-the-art facilities with personalised service to create a fun environment for all. Step inside our cardio theatre and you can work one-on-one with a personal trainer or experience all the fun and fitness of group classes. Our classes range from yoga to our awesome arena training. You’ll be having so much fun that you’ll forget you’re working out! When you’re ready to relax or swim some laps, you can head to our heated pool, sauna and spa. We also have swimming schools for young and old.
A Holistic Approach to Fitness
Health and fitness isn’t about fad diets or crazy exercise routines. We have a range of qualified staff on site, from personal trainers to physiotherapists and nutritionists who can help you focus on realistic, sustainable results. Our team is dedicated to your health and fitness. We can work with you to understand your routines and your body to help you get the most out of every workout.
We Do it Your Way
We understand that no two people are the same and that means we all need tailored health and fitness programs. Our team and our facility are here for you, and we’re dedicated to helping you meet your individual needs with personalised advice and workout routines. Our hours reflect our commitment to you too. We’re open early, we close late, and we have a professional crèche on-site so parents can exercise during the day. Health and fitness doesn’t have a timetable, and we make it easy for you to maximise your time to suit your lifestyle.
