HCC was born out of a desire to make a positive impact in people's lives post Christchurch earthquakes of September 2010 & February 2011.
Going on our own life style transformation journey while living in Queensland between August & November 2012. We returned home for a family event in Dec 2012 & saw the effects the earthquakes had on our family & friends weren't really taking care of their health & wellbeing and were putting all their focus into their family instead. We knew we could make a difference and made the big decision to pack up and move back to Christchurch.
Our first major goal was to create a programme that was fun yet challenging while offering a service in a supportive, caring & uplifting environment. We originally ran group training sessions on Saturday & Sunday mornings, we did this to try a break the habit created around binge drinking. They would need to make a decision to either get on it and be hung over the next day or stay clean to get up for training in the morning.
We operate a fully mobile gym service throughout Christchurch as well as co-ordinate health, wellbeing & nutrition work shops with other health professionals that are passionate about helping people.
In September 2017 we opened our very own HCC HQ(gym). This has been a vision for a very long time and by having this space we can now provide the types of services we have been wanting to deliver at our own discretion. We offer Group Training, Weight Training, PT one on one training, run youth fitness programmes, host sports clubs, run health and wellbeing work shops and anything else that can benefit the wider community. This has been a long journey and not without it's hurdles but the pain and effort has definitely be worth it now that we are fully operational.
