amanda Senior of lumsden is
serious about fitness. She is a
personal trainer and the initiator
of the Northern Southland
community Gym – a gym
organised and run by its members
rather than a commercial entity.
originally from Batemans Bay,
Australia, Amanda qualified as a
fitness instructor and made it her
career. Then she went travelling
and met her future husband chris,
a Southland farmer. The couple
married and settled on chris’s
farm near lumsden.
When she moved to lumsden
amanda noticed the lack of a gym
in the area. She started teaching
fitness classes at Northern
Southland college and continued
this twice a week for 10 years.
“I knew some people were
travelling to Gore or Invercargill for
a gym, so I thought a gym would
go well in the area,” she said.
However, she didn’t want it to be
her own business, but rather a
community-owned facility, because
she believes that when people
share ownership of something
they tend to look after it.
Setting up a gym requires a
substantial initial investment for
equipment, so amanda turned
to the Northern Southland
Development Trust for help. after
months of preparation with the
Trust, the gym was opened in
late 2007. Venture Southland
helped to get the gym off the
ground by assisting with funding
applications, lease arrangements,
and providing ongoing support.
Since its opening at the old lions’
building in lumsden, the number
of gym memberships has by
far exceeded expectations and
currently is maintained at over
Membership cost is $250 a year
or $160 for six months. annual
family memberships are $350.
Every new member has a session
with amanda to learn equipment
safety. after that they get a key
and can train at any time.
amanda takes classes on Monday
and Wednesday at 7pm, and
Thursday at 9.30am. all but the
Thursday morning class are now
held at the lumsden community
Hall. She also teaches aqua fit
and aqua jogging at lumsden,
Mossburn and limehills pools,
which are very popular in summer.
Recently the gym celebrated
its 7th anniversary. Today it is
fully equipped with treadmills,
cross-trainers, spin bikes, rowers,
free weights and strengthening
Venture Southland community
Development Team leader, Bobbi
Brown said the gym had grown to
be a hub for health and fitness
activities with massage therapists
and physiotherapists also using it.
“Having a gym in lumsden has
provided an opportunity for not
only local sportspeople and
students, but also young
mothers, the elderly, those
recuperating from illness or injury
and rural people to access these
valuable resources in Northern
Community gym celebrates seven years
Northern Southland Community Gym manager Amanda Senior who
established the facility in 2007.
