The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) gymnasium is being expanded and upgraded this year.

The gym will feature quality Cybex equipment and Olympic training weights and will be well suited for health/fitness, rehabilitation and high performance sport.

More than $200,000 is being spent to create the extra space and purchase new equipment to better serve SIT students, as well as to make the gymnasium more usable for local high-performance athletes and sports teams. This integration between SIT and local sporting codes is a win-win situation. It will benefit particularly Sport and Exercise students as they work alongside elite sports people and it will enable a better use of resources.

Southland's top sports teams and athletes will be able to access high-performance training and testing equipment.

SIT has started purchasing equipment, plans have been submitted and work should be completed mid-year.
