Hey! it's Anna and Jason.
Welcome to the Level gym family!
Our goal is to make other peoples lives better by encouraging their active living and positive mindsets, whilst building a supportive community around them.
We believe that Fitness should be fun,
challenging and bring people together.
We aim to achieve these things here at Level
How we got here:
Our idea to start a gym and community of fitness enthustiasts started in 2016. At the time Jason was serving in the Police Force and had been since 2009. We wanted to create a lifestyle that suited our growing family and something that would contribute to something bigger than ourselves. Ie. helping people succeed with their health! Combating lifestyle related illnesses and promoting a positive outlook on life.
Enter.. The exit plan!! Jason qualifies as a Crossfit Level 1 instructor and begins study at AUT towards more fitness qualification.
We will build a gym next door to our house! Take the leap of faith and become self employed.
Exit Police in Janurary 2017 and let the fun begin!!
Where we are at now:
Well it worked! People joined and keep coming back for more fitness! We have people from age 6 to 60+ coming along, not only that but such interesting and fun loving, positive people that make you feel like part of the family instantly. Love it!
Its a bit like, leave ya ego at the door and come in as you are. Be willing to challenge ya body, have a laugh and belonging to a really awesome crew of humans!
Our 2 year anniversary

Hey I'm Anna,
When I am not running around after our 4 kids, or studying at University, I love coaching in the gym 1 on 1.
In 2018 I qualified as a GGS-1 Womens Coach, which opened the door for me to get involved in the gym and helping our local women achieve some health goals.
I have a keen interest in nutrition and mindsets around fat loss. Its not an easy journey making these changes, but with a coach along side of you, it just makes all the difference for accounatbility and results.
If this interests you, feel free to reach out to me for a chat!
