Getting fit and trim a snap
Snap Fitness, at 8-10 High St,
behind Warehouse Stationery, has
now been in the township for six
months, and if you will excuse the
expression, is going from strength
Founded in 2003 in the United
States, Snap Fitness is the world's
fastest-growing fitness franchise,
with a simple concept: 24/7 gyms,
with state-of-the-art equipment,
minimal staffing and no fuss.
Rangiora's Snap Fitness owner,
Jo Hawley-Smith, is thrilled to be
here and enjoys the wide
demographic her gym attracts. She
sees it as having the facilities of a
city gym, with a small-town,
friendly and welcoming
Yes, you can get plenty of
advice and have access to free
personal trainers, but you can call
in at any time and complete
your exercise routine without

You may, because of work
commitments, need to come in at
an odd time. One swipe of your
membership card lights the whole
place up and you get to work.
Joining up brings a sigh of relief
from those who worry about being
locked into a contract. You don't
require a 12-month membership,
and can leave by giving one
''Here we have an emphasis
upon wellness,'' Jo says.
''It doesn't matter what your
occupation is. If you are 16 or 70
years old, whether your weight is
50 or 150 kilograms -- we provide
whatever people require to help
them achieve their fitness and/or
general health and wellness
Jo ensures the gym is active
within the community -- the Super
Quiz, Sefton Tug'O War, prizes for
schools -- and sees it very much as
a community effort.
By the time you read this, up to
40 members will have received
free chair massages, just to say
thank you for their support
through the first six months of
growth. New members, too, can
benefit from the half-year
celebration -- there is no joining
fee this week.
So, set a goal for the spring and
summer, and join up now. Come
on, snap to it.

Pauline and Noel are one happy item
-- Noel s a darling , she said.
The Walkers received a substan-

It s amazing, the never-ending
supply coming in.
Mrs Walker delights in the special
moments, like the time she picked up
109 cakes from a bakery.
We rang one school and asked
how many families they had. They
It would be lovely if we could get
a grant and do all low decile schools.
We really enjoy what we do. I just
feel it s my privilege. We happen to
hear stories and just want to do
something. We can t do anything
unless community helps.
She is also thankful for the
generous help from Rangiora New
World and Rangiora Bakery.
fire fighter bid
Mini station: The Cust Fire Brigade sold this playhouse on Trade Me to help raise
funds to send its youngest member to the fire fighting champs in Las Vegas.
CUST FIRE Brigade s youngest
member, Edward Jackman, is off to
Las Vegas in October to compete in
the World Fire-Fighter Combat
Challenge, thanks in part to a Trade
Me auction that closed on Sunday,
raising $805 to help him on his way.
At stake on the website was a
dinky little playhouse built by his
fellow brigade members -- a mini fire
station, complete with fire
extinguisher and a fire-fighter
mural whose face slides aside so its
new owners can play fireman.
The funds raised from its sale will
join the proceeds of raffle tickets for
firewood that Edward has also been
selling to help pay his way.
The World Fire-Fighter Combat
Challenge has a reputation as the
toughest two minutes in sport.
Participants need to run up a
five-storey tower carrying a heavy
high-rise pack, pull a hose up to the
top of the tower, make a forced
entry, run out the hose and rescue a
victim , all while keeping an eye on
