At Bodyneed we are passionate about getting you moving and keeping you moving. Our team of coaches and physiotherapists work together to offer holistic support for life, so you can move better and do more than ever before.

Bodyneed is owned by Karen Finlayson, a movement trainer who, 18 years ago, began her journey to better health and movement and launched Bodyneed. Initially just offering sports massage Karen's integrative approach with other health practitioners led to the idea of a multi-discipline clinic in 2008. Read more about Karen here.

Now we are able to offer complete, cohesive body care for life, with group fitness, personal training, nutrition and physiotherapy all in one convenient location. 

This combination has been proven to provide longer lasting results, and our expert team works together, guaranteeing you the best holistic care. 

Don't just take our word for it though...hear from some of the people we've helped here.

Our Vision and Values

It is our mission to revolutionise the health industry by creating long lasting transformations for our clients - empowering them to be healthy and active, feel great, be pain free and love life!
Professional Care
We look after our clients with the utmost care as if you were our family.  And if you don’t feel we have cared for you in this way we want you to tell us.
You First
You come first. We listen and respond to you.  We will ask you to tell us what you need.
Community Focus
We are building a community, with a focus on sharing, caring and co-operation as a team and with our clients. This flows into our engagement with the wider community. Our community includes Youthline, Total Sport Events, our neighbours, sports coaches, local gyms and personal trainers.
Top of our Game
We are always learning and will share this new knowledge with you.  We take a holistic view of physical health, and share this so you can live your best life now.

Our Point of Difference

Our key point of difference as a fitness studio is truly holding people to account for reaching their goals, specifically via the Six Week Challenge. We provide a supportive, fun and non competitive fitness environment specifically for the over 40s age group.

As a client coming to bodyneed you have access to a diverse team who take time to get to know you. Our training philosophy stems from Movnat – Natural Movement Training – the focus is training your body for the real world – eg squats so you can sit on the floor, deadlifts to be able to pick heavy stuff up, pull ups and push ups to be able to maintain upper body strength to move through your environment.


Bodyneed's studio has been designed to provide everything you need in one place to get your body feeling it’s best and moving like never before.

The custom-built studio is conveniently located at 17 Maidstone Street, Ponsonby, near Grey Lynn and Auckland city. Close to the Western Motorway, Bodyneed Sports Clinic is easily accessible from Mt Eden, Kingsland, Herne Bay, Sandringham, Mt Albert and the Greater Auckland Area.
