With a sociable and friendly atmosphere, you could meet new friends. Sunny Gymz hosts the Les Mills group aerobic classes, a world-wide phenomenon with over 16,000 clubs around the world. Sunny Gymz is one of these Les Mills licensee clubs and is currently the only facility in the Eastern Bay performing a range of classes each week to suit all fitness levels. The classes are action packed, full of fun, taught by experienced and qualified instructors to uplifting music – and exercising is the bonus! They cover a range of fitness abilities from the beginner to the elite.

Group fitness classes are upstairs where there are two spacious studios, one with plenty of room to workout when theres no class running, this is also available to hire for kapa haka practices. Theres also a child friendly corner where you can pop your children in to play so you can continue to exercise. In studio 2 is our Ladies only room , in there are circuit & cardio equipment . So if you are new to exercise or want to train somewhere quiet, then this is the place for you & it has 24/7 access!

The gym has a enclosed air conditioned studio for RPM (spin bike class). Bookings are essential for this class.

Check out our information pages about the classes and our class timetable.

If classes are not your forte, there is a large selection of machine weights, free weights and cardiovascular equipment. The weights room is huge with lots of equipment to tone every muscle. The weights room is like no other gym in Whakatane, there’s plenty of equipment and SPACE to workout, especially at those busy times – having to wait for equipment is highly reduced. The cardio area has plenty of bikes, rowers, treadmills, and cross trainers.

When you join the gym, it is recommended to have a consultation with a trainer so they design an exercise regime to suit your health & fitness goals, there is a cost of $50. These trainers are also available during our staffed hours if you need help with your technique, spotting when doing heavy weighted exercises & any other help with your training. If you need that extra push to exercise then a popular choice is to consult one of the certified personal trainers who will personally help you achieve your desired goals, they can train you one on one for an extra cost.
