A Tauranga couple offering free public workouts say helping people transform their lives is more than enough payment for their efforts.
Tauranga couple Jax Pevreal and Klynt Te Wheoro-Lucas are using their shared passion for fitness to steer people into healthier lifestyles and create a more active community that will pave the way for future generations.
Miss Pevreal, a qualified personal trainer and Mr Te Wheoro-Lucas, a rugby enthusiast who has played in New Zealand and in Australia, have invested hundreds of hours of their own time into planning and running public workout sessions, free of charge, all because they want the community they are part of to lead healthy and active lifestyles.
"We're teaching our kids a healthy lifestyle and we've got to lead by example," Mrs Pevreal said.
