West Wave Pool and Leisure Centre have free BollyRobix classes every week thanks to Puketapapa Local Board member Ella Kumar. West Wave staff also organise table tennis, badminton and basketball so that family members can also be active during the class.
Our Active Communities Advisor Jewelz Petley saw the opportunity to bring this successful group exercise to West Auckland and Ella Kumar is looking for local leaders to continue running sessions at West Wave by attending the classes and taking part in her trainer the trainer sessions.
This aligns with an initiative from Aktive and Sport NZ, called Family Fun Club. Sport Waitakere are using the Family Fun Club model to bring BollyRobix to West Auckland.
Ella also talks about the importance of good food and nutrition while being active. Sessions happen every Sunday at 11.30am, this is a change from the current Friday night at 6.30pm.
