Keep hearing about the NZ Fitness League but want to know more?


The New Zealand Fitness League is an inter-club competition platform. Teams will compete head to head against local opponents and simultaneously against the rest of the country in the sport of fitness.

The league is designed to be inclusive and to accommodate a range of skill and fitness levels. This will be achieved through Premier and Open divisions.

Each team will have a squad with as many members as you wish as long as they are all members of the same gym but only 6 (3 male & 3 females) compete in each ‘Head 2 Head’ event.

The 2016 season will run for five rounds with the top two teams in each region progressing to the semi finals and the winner on to the finals.
