Times are a bit tough at the moment?

At Kershaw training, we know what it’s like, we have all been there, but don’t let tough times stop you from achieving where you need to be.

In the course though we do also build tapu wai tower which are donated to Marae for water storage

What else do we get to do?

We are like whānau, so we work hard and play even harder. Depending on the season and availability like any tradie getting out there with the work crew is essential for building unity, so we do stuff like boxing, waka ama, mau rakau, go karting and kai tahi.

Kershaw Training is all about the #LevelUP whether that’s your education, career, fitness or lifestyle.
