COVID-19 Protection Framework Update


As part of the covid protection framework, the government has mandated that gyms and health clubs may only operate effectively if customers visiting the gym have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and can produce a valid NZ vaccine pass.
While we absolutely regret having to exclude anyone of our members from the gym we understand that Affinity must abide by the new protection framework and do our part to ensure we keep both our customers and our community safe. During these times of heightened restrictions, we will look to ensure the gym operates as normally as possible and have outlined below what we will require from you and some a link to the most common FAQs.

What will you need to do?
Once we move into the Traffic light framework at 11.59 pm on Thursday 2nd December all Affinity key tags will be deactivated. It is very simple to reactivate your key tag, all you need to do is visit Reception during staffed hours or screenshot and email your Vaccine Pass to [email protected].
If emailing we will respond to let you know your keycard has been reactivated. Please understand this may not be immediate.
If reactivating your key tag at Reception please visit during staffed hours. We will use the Vaccine Pass Verifier app to check your vaccine pass on your phone or a hard copy. Once done we will update your membership in our system and you will be back to using the gym a per normal.

Level 2 staffed hours:
Mon-Thur: 12pm - 7:30pm
Friday: 12pm - 6pm
Saturday: 12pm - 2pm
