General FAQ's

What should I bring along to UniRec?

Remember to bring your swipe card, a small sweat towel, a water bottle (which you can fill at UniRec).

Will someone help me to get started when I arrive?

Absolutely. Most memberships include an initial exercise consultation with one of the team which will help you to get you started.

How much does a membership cost?

We genuinely believe in making fitness accessible to everyone and so provide an array of flexible, great value membership options. We also offer discounted memberships to students, University of Waikato staff and seniors. Visit our MEMBERSHIPS page to find out more.

Once I've joined, will there be any add-on costs?

Every UniRec membership includes access to all facilities (including Endless Pools, Squash Courts and the Sports hall) at no extra cost. All Group Exercise, REV Indoor Cycling and Yoga  classes are also included in the cost of your membership. The only services you would pay extra for are specialist services such as Personal Training, Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy (but you do get a discount as a valued member).

Where can i park during my workout?

Paid parking applies on the University of Waikato campus during the hours of 8.30am - 4.30pm, Monday - Friday. On-campus parking outside of these times is free.

Can I postpone my membership?

Memberships can be placed 'on hold' for a minimum of 14 days and a maximum of 60 days. If you would like to place your membership on hold, simply fill out the form on the CONTACT US page (selecting 'Memberships and Pricing' as your enquiry type) and provide the start and end date you would like your membership on hold and a brief reason why (i.e. travel, medical). Note: No Fixed Term memberships cannot be placed on hold. Terms and Conditions apply. Management reserve the right to decline 'on hold' requests.

Exercise Class FAQ's

I have never done Group Exercise classes before... Can I simply come along?

A firm favourite among our existing members, we have no doubt that you will adore our Group Exercise classes! Simply grab your trainers and a sweat towel and make your way to a class of your choice

Do I have to pay extra for classes?

No. As a UniRec member, free access to all Group Exercise / Indoor Cycling and Yoga classes is included in your membership.

Some of the classes look like fun, but my coordination and balance are rubbish.

Some classes involve dance moves and require a little more coordination than others, but that doesn't mean they're out of bounds! Our class instructors will guide you through specific techniques. Focus on what you enjoy and try different classes until you find one that works for you.
