The best fitness experiences in Auckland, as voted by you

The results are in. The inaugural Denizen Everyday Heroes saw thousands of votes cast in support of local businesses, with the aim of shining a light on the people and places whose services we rely upon. So without further ado, celebrate the best fitness experiences Auckland city has to offer, as voted by you.

1. MOST VOTED: Les Mills, Citywide
Helping thousands of people around the country reach their exercise goals each and every day, Les Mills is unbeatable when it comes to a 360-degree fitness experience. From the incredible group classes, to one-on-one sessions with their expert personal trainers, and the well-appointed gym floors to go out on your own, Les Mills is the ultimate fitness destination, no matter your level.

2. HONOURABLE MENTION: Studio Box, Newmarket
Since it opened in 2019, Studio Box has been a firm favourite among fans of boxing’s myriad benefits, conducted in a group exercise setting. With its atmospheric surroundings (thanks to the blessedly dark mood lighting) and excellent playlist, we can think of no better place to get in the zone and pummel out our frustrations.

3. HONOURABLE MENTION: SALA, Ponsonby
Any regular attendees to Sala will know there’s an almost transcendent feeling that arises during the boutique fitness centre’s classes. Whether you’re a yoga devotee or a Pilates aficionado, you can be sure you’re in good hands with any one of Sala’s encouraging, knowledgeable teachers.
