Owner Robert Binns said of HQH Fitness:

"Having moved back (to NZ) from owning a gym in London, I visited 4 equipment companies before finding HQH Fitness and Kerry. From the word go her professionalism and dedication to what i was looking for in setting up my private personal training studio was beyond excellent.The equipment and pricing she gave me was compatible and competitive in some areas with everyone else, but the pre and post-sales service was exceptional. I wouldn't even consider looking anywhere else when i am ready to expand my facility. Thank you Kerry and HQH Fitness for helping me get started on time and on budget."
