The Wellington Phoenix have entered a new club-wide partnership with Anytime Fitness.
All Phoenix players, from the academy to the first teams, will be able to make use of any of their 60 24/7 gyms in Aotearoa, including in Wellington at 20 Kent Terrace.
The partnership will be particularly beneficial for the men’s and women’s first teams when they are away from their state-of-the-art training base at the New Zealand Campus of Innovation and Sport in Upper Hutt.
There are more than 5,000 Anytime Fitness gyms globally, with 540-plus clubs in Australia and in all major New Zealand centres for when the teams take home games out of the capital.
‘Beneficial at all levels of the club’
The Phoenix’s head of strength and conditioning Weijie Lim has hailed the partnership as a game changer.
“I think it’s really beneficial for us at all levels of the club,” Lim said. “When the men and women are in Australia during the A-Leagues seasons the players now have top quality facilities they can utilise.
“In the past, it’s been quite difficult for us to find accessible facilities in different cities and states across Australia. This partnership is going to make our lives a lot easier when we’re on the road.
“Anytime Fitness’ central Wellington gym is also great for the club, especially for our top end academy players, who can now get all their strength work done together in one centralised location.
“The staff at Kent Terrace are very welcoming and it’s a convenient gym for players to access and utilise throughout the season.”
‘An exciting chapter in our journey’
Anytime Fitness New Zealand CEO Cam Ward is thrilled to partner with the Wellington Phoenix.
“At Anytime Fitness, we believe in the power of community and the transformative effects of fitness on individuals’ lives,” Ward said.
“Teaming up with the Wellington Phoenix aligns perfectly with our mission to inspire healthier lifestyles and create a positive influence within the community.
“This collaboration marks an exciting chapter in our journey to make fitness accessible to all, and we can’t wait to see the positive outcomes it brings forth.”
