Product Donation for Full memberships

We’re all about getting more kiwis active, whilst also raising enough funds to keep us operating – all while keeping the cash contribution for your membership to a minimum.

It’s most likely that Memberships are your primary product. We are happy to receive alternate products for those that do not sell memberships as long as it is your primary product. e.g. Concession Cards, Training Sessions.

2 x 6 Month Membership

2 x 12 Month Membership

For facilities/businesses that sell memberships, the donation amount is 2 x 3 month, 2 x 6 month and 2 x 12 month memberships. See the FAQ below for full details on donation of product and how we use the funds.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand it’s not a simple mechanic but it does make sense once you understand it. Below are all the most commonly asked questions about joining us.

Who and what is Exercise New Zealand (EXNZ)?
EXNZ is a non-profit incorporated society. Our members are exercise providers (facilities like gyms, studios and recreation facilities) as well as exercise professionals, and those with an interest in increasing exercise levels in New Zealand.
How is Exercise New Zealand funded?

EXNZ receives the vast majority of its funding directly from its members, activities and events. Like all non-profit organisations, it shows full annual accounts to its members at each AGM.

Who runs Exercise New Zealand?
At the AGM each year, board members elect a board to govern the organisation. If you are interested in becoming involved, please feel free to put your name forward (See our contact page and ask for the chair for more details).
How do you use the donated memberships, where does the money go?
All the funds raised from the sales of donated memberships help pay for our operations and activities. We provide full details to our members on how we earn and spend money through our annual report. As a non-profit body, all our funds are used for the objectives of the organisation, so any surplus is invested back into the organisation for the benefit of all.
Why do I have to donate products?
In brief – this keeps the cash part of your membership to a minimum while still enabling EXNZ to have enough funds to deliver on our mission, and provide support and services to our members Put another way, for most exercise businesses, donating a membership is much easier than paying the equivalent value in cash, and by each member giving a small amount of their product (i.e. memberships), and us selling these at a subsidised rate to the public, this not only ensures we can continue to operate at a high level, but also helps get more kiwis active, all while keeping the cash cost of your membership down.
What is the standard product donation?

 

The standard donation for Full memberships is: – Exercise facilities and membership based businesses: 2 x 3, 2 x 6, 2 x 12 month membership – Concession card based businesses (common in Yoga Studios): 2 x 10 visit card 4 x 20 visit card – One on One PT sessions (for sole traders who do not sell memberships): 6 x 3 one hour PT sessions

Who can join?
Anyone who supports our objectives is welcome to join. Most of our members operate some sort of exercise business (commercial or non-profit) in New Zealand, and/or have an interest in increasing the physical activity levels of kiwis through exercise.
I’m a personal trainer, can I join / can you help me?
For most exercise professionals we suggest registering with our sister organization REPs (the Register of Exercise Professionals). By registering not only do you gain a marketable quality mark, but also have access to public liability insurance, and tools for you as an exercise professional (such as health & safety templates) – full details at https://www.reps.org.nz. If you operate a studio or otherwise own your own facility/business, you are also welcome to join EXNZ too.
I’m a yoga teacher, can I join / can you help me?
We work with our sister organisation Yoga New Zealand (https://www.yoganewzealand.org.nz), and suggest yoga teachers look there first. By joining not only do you support their work, but also gain access to public liability insurance, and receive special rates at key Yoga events, while still being part of the wider EXNZ Whānau. If you operate a studio or otherwise own your own facility/business, you are also welcome to join EXNZ too.
