THE POWERHOUSE has been in Wellington for 18 years. Established in 1988 in the back of a Demolition Yard we provided a rugged training environment for the true hard gainer. Our equipment came from gyms that closed down and other pieces were built in our workshop. Our membership never exceeded more than 40.
Our first area was about 400 sq feet as we inherited more equipment we expanded to 800 then to 1200 sq feet. Then our lease ran out and here we are now 4,000 sq feet to play with. Our culture and environment is what The Powerhouse wants others to experience.
We are a no frills gym, our fees reflect this as you are not paying for areas that you would not use as in the larger Fitness Centres. Being a Free Weight gym and not Machine Based we do not have to keep up with latest trends, technologies or designs. Free Weights emphasises Core Stability which you will not get from Machine based gyms.
Our equipment is not state of the art but tried and tested and will handle all Body types Large or Small Heavy or Light.
is Not a Place
But a State of Mind”
