Best Fitness and Gyms in Wellington City
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Wellington team
You don't have to let all that holiday eating and drinking ruin your figure while you're in New Zealand. Fitness in Wellington is big business, with plenty of gyms, pools and fitness centres right on the doorstep.
Walk down any main road in the CBD, and you'll see all kinds of Wellington Fitness places. Gyms, pools and fitness classes can be found all day, every day. At many places, you can just pay on the door for hourly, or daily, sessions. Most of the larger hotels will have their own gym and pools. Holiday apartment blocks may also have fitness rooms, so check these out before you go. Booking in somewhere with the facilities you need, will save a fortune on temporary memberships. Thorndon, Lambton Quay and Willis Street/The Terrace, is where you'll find most big-name fitness centres. Thorndon also has an outdoor pool, on Murphy Street. Oriental Parade has a good swimming pool and fitness centre combined. Just don't get distracted by all the good bars and restaurants right next door. If budget is an issue, don't forget that Wellington has numerous parks and reserves. A morning jog around Central Park or the Botanic Gardens, will set you up for the day.
