The Unitec Sports Centre offers a fully equipped Hammer Strength-certified weight room and the cardio area, which features a variety of Life Fitness equipment, from treadmills and cross-trainers to concept rowers and spin bikes. As a sport student you use the centre for practical sessions (exercise prescription, biomechanics and exercise physiology), using the variety of equipment to show how different types of exercises affect various muscles.
Coaching students often use the Sports Centre's stadium to teach groups of schoolchildren skills like running and jumping or specific sports like basketball and soccer. Unitec has agreements with a number of Auckland schools that give coaching students a chance to gain hands-on coaching experience.
Whether you want to train for your chosen sport or to remain in shape, you can of course also work out at the Sports Centre in your spare time. School of Sport students can take advantage of the great student rates.
The centre's state-of-the-art facilities are regularly used by professional athletes like the Auckland Blues, the Auckland NPC Rugby team, members of the New Zealand Academy of Sport, Squash New Zealand and the New Zealand Women's Cricket team.
