Love My Sport details:

Love my Sport is committed to helping everyone enjoy sport and stay active. The name ‘Love my Sport’ came about because we firmly believe that the enjoyment and love of taking part in sport is essential to achieving your sporting goals.

Whether you want to keep active, be in control of your health, be part of a social fitness group or take competition to a higher level, we can help you with your goals.

We are based in Palmerston North and have daily sessions which everyone is welcome to take part in. We also coach athletes via email in New Zealand and abroad.

We are equally at home motivating a first timer to run their first 5km, explaining the finer points of swimming in rip currents to a seasoned triathlete or organising a school or corporate class of 100+ people.
