Our Story

ClubVO2 was founded in 2006, and purchased by Anna and James Arlidge in November 2013. With a collective 30+ years in the health and fitness industry, they have fine-tuned the perfect formula to ensure ClubVO2 is a facility where your health and fitness will thrive.

James played professional rugby in New Zealand, Japan and the UK for 15 years before ‘retiring’ into corporate life at Deloitte in Auckland. The highlight of his rugby career was playing in the 2011 Rugby World Cup for Japan, where he experienced what can be achieved with quality trainers and a positive, motivated and dedicated mindset.

James is a qualified Chartered Accountant and supports Anna within ClubVO2 where appropriate. James is also a board member of Exercise New Zealand.

Anna’s competitive running and athletics background has meant she has always been involved in and has a huge passion for all things fitness.  Originally she held Sales Managers and Gym Management positions in the UK and after the birth of her first baby she realised her true passion was Personal Training. Being involved in clubs with 3000+ members she appreciated these larger facilities often lacked the personal touch which lead her to developing her own successful Personal Training Business, The Body Project. 

Finally in 2013 the opportunity to own ClubVO2 was presented and she hasn’t looked back!
