Just a three minute drive from Parkview, Forge Fitness Gym is bustling with fit Helensville locals. Owner Richard Price bought the old Mill Road gym mid last year and rebranded it. It’s not just the name that has changed though; once a tired space full of outdated equipment, it’s been thoroughly modernised inside and out.
Old equipment has been replaced with state of the art, heavy-duty American made gear. With more machines than members on the floor at any given time, queuing is not an issue, despite membership numbers more than doubling since last year. The gym is open 24/7, for night owls and early risers alike.
A former competitive boxer, Richard’s been working on setting up a specialised boxing gym in adjacent premises, on track to be completed by the end of this year. He also has plans to bring in more personal trainers over time as well as group fitness classes to cater to all levels.
Richard says that the Helensville community has a great vibe. “Everyone is welcoming. I’ve got CEOs who’ve moved here from the city for the lifestyle, as well as farmers, professionals, tradies and retirees. It’s a great mix. The town is moving up and everything is getting refurbished to meet new demand.”
Helensville’s unique location and charming rural character are what separates this small township from its neighbouring areas. Now, thanks to considerable growth across Auckland’s northwestern regions, Helensville is shaping up to be the best of the west.
With increasing rental returns and forecasted positive cash flow, Parkview, Helensville is the perfect retirement nest egg.
