Ron Werner
Assistant Manager

Ron Werner has been at the Rec Centre longer than the average life sentence in NZ!  But he’s not begging for release - in fact he loves it! 

 “The people, our staff, the members. Our facilities and programmes give students, staff and the community a chance to work out and that is not only good for them physically but also a great way to de-stress.   It’s pretty rewarding - a simple thanks from people reaffirms why I love this job!”

Ron spent 14 years as a self-employed floor layer before realising he was going to wreck his body if he continued and he left to study Exercise Science.  Now he spends his days dealing with facility management, programme development and assisting with the strategic direction of the Centre.  He also manages the Equestrian Centre and still has the time to take a couple of RPM classes!

Ron has a passion for health & wellbeing. Certainly as part of his job but also for himself and his family. He loves outdoor sports, in particular triathlon, cycling and multisport.  If he could invite anyone for dinner it would be his Mum, but he’d have to ask her to cook as “she was the BEST!”  He also loves salmon steaks and chocolate (although not together) and his perfect night would involve snacks, a cold beer and feet up watching sports on TV!
