Welcome to Level 2!

While many businesses have begun to reopen, there are a lot of new guidelines to follow to ensure social distancing, contact tracing and other health and safety measures are in place to keep our community safe.

Fitness centres, pools and studios are beginning to open for those looking for indoor activity options. At this stage Community Strength & Balance classes remain closed, these may start to open after Queen’s Birthday on 1 June or when we move into Level 1.  Information is regularly updated on the Community Strength and Balance page on Sport Taranaki’s website https://www.sporttaranaki.org.nz/health/strength-and-balance/

There are many ways to keep active and improve your strength and balance outdoors or in your own home. The websites below are great resources for getting more safe, fun and effective activity in your day.    

Healthy for Life – a strength and balance exercise programme is now available on TVNZ on Demand:  https://www.livestronger.org.nz/home/exercise-at-home/resources-to-exercise-safely-at-home//
