Running in New Zealand

Running in New Zealand was soooo good! Such a pleasure to finally run in a mild climate, with amazing landscapes, clean roads, no stray dogs around an an unlimited number of tracks and trails. I only wish I had more time to run around the spectacular roads of Aotearoa, as we needed to stick to a tight schedule.

As New Zealand is the home country of the worldwide famous Les Mills fitness group,we also decided to visit their official gyms as much as possible, thus reducing further my time for outdoor runs. But I really cannot complain because the runs I did were fantastic and Les Mills gyms are just incredible!

Attending Body Pump, Body Combat, Grit classes at their top-notch facilities with the best instructors in the world really was a small dream come true! I think my favourite gym was the Auckland Britomart one, but every single one of them was superb!

Regarding running routes, I loved all the 5 that i recorded, however Queenstown must be one of the best places in the world for running and the runs in the southern island were my favourites. Tuapo is such a lovely place for shorter runs, whilst in Auckland you can just follow the costline for miles!
