Where it all Began…

Founded in 2016, Empower Gym is a local, New Zealand business owned by a passionate, sports loving family.

Growing up our whole family was involved with sports. It was an important outlet when things were tough and a great way to socialize and spend time with the people we cared about – many of our closest friends we made through fitness! Because of this exercise has always been a hugely positive experience in our lives, and it’s an experience we want to share with others.

Why a women’s only gym? Growing up, we were surrounded and supported by lots of strong, intelligent women. These women inspired us to achieve greatness. They also, like all of us, struggled with body image and mental health at times. We saw how fitness helped them make the bad days a lot more bearable and knew we wanted to create a safe-space to destress and make positive life changes for all women.
