Hi and welcome to BAReFIT. I started BAReFIT in 2014 to bring community to the local area that I lived in. As an ex-swimmer I knew too well of sport being a lonely business. I would spend hours in ocean races surrounded with people but never talking to anyone. At BAReFIT I wanted the opposite. I've been fortunate to have been blessed with the most epic community at BAReFIT. It has taken 8 years to build but truly worth it.

Come to one of my sessions and feel the infectious energy



Hi I'm Mak, one of the business partners and coaches at BAReFIT.  I am someone who is super passionate about Sports and Fitness, especially Cricket. I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and ASCA Level 1 S&C Coach.As a specialist in HIIT and Strength and conditioning , you can expect to be pushed to your limits in one of my classes. I make every session fast paced but with element of control and conditioning.

Look forward to meeting with you.

I like to formally introduce Ben Taylor to BAReFIT

We spotted Ben running a water aerobics session and was blown away with his energy and knowledge on exercise and client experience.

As a fellow small business owner he understands the importance of looking after your clients and he has multiple qualifications, including a Sport and Recreation degree from AUT. 


Ben will be running the Monday and Wednesday morning sessions from Feb 15th.

Hi, I’m Benja.


I’m a Physiotherapist who graduated from the University of Chile and an MSc. in Clinical Exercise Physiology at UoA. I love to exercise, I have been interested in it my whole life; I see it as the best way to keep our bodies healthy and strong. I have published multiple studies regarding exercise and its physical, physiological, and cognitive effects, as well as trained people with different health conditions, from healthy athletes to people with cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
In my classes, I try to incorporate all my knowledge and experience to develop a challenging but fun session for everybody, that will make you sweat and struggle, but also enjoy. I hope to meet you soon!
