Key Benefits of Membership

In a nutshell, we are here to help support the exercise and fitness industry in New Zealand.  We are a non-profit membership-based organisation – our members own us.

By joining, you receive significant membership benefits (listed below), and also support the only organisation that exists solely for the purpose of supporting the exercise industry in New Zealand.

One of the ways we add value to the industry is by focusing on the issues that we all face, but individually either don’t have the time, money or know-how for, or if we do, it’s just not economic to do it.  An example of this is recent issue with the Commerce Commission, and their interpretation of the law around membership agreements.  Individual clubs could all get a legal opinion costing several thousand dollars each, or ExerciseNZ could do the same thing, and then share it with all members.  Not only is this more cost-effective, but it also means that we can dedicate more resources and time to any one issue that many members could.   The key here is acting alone can be costly and time-consuming, but working with us means you free up time and money for the things that matter in your business.

If you operate a business (profit making or not) in the fitness area, then ExerciseNZ is YOUR association.  Join it to support its existence and ability to work for YOU.  More detailed benefits of membership are listed below.

Benefits of membership to Exercise NZ can be broadly grouped into the 3 categories mentioned in the video:

  1. Advocacy – we fight on your behalf (ACC, IRD, Music Industry)
  2. Lots of resources & tools
  3. Upskilling for your business & staff (industry conference, industry awards)
