NextStep New Zealand was born out of the necessity to keep an iconic facility in our community alive.The facility at 14B was originally designed to provide a place for the owners son to continue his exercise rehabilitation after suffering a spinal cord injury as there was nothing else available at the time. Since then there are still no places for long term intensive rehabilitation outside of the hospital system. Ownership of the facility has changed a few times due to the harsh reality of the lack of funding for continued exercise therapy. Something had to change and as things happened a gym member had sponsored Aaron to go and visit a Neurorecovery facility in Los Angeles and this was the catalyst the facility needed to take the literal NextStep. Aaron made an offer to the previous management to take over the facility and established links with the NextStep franchise which operates another 8 centres worldwide. The NextStep franshise stands for everything the facility was intended to be for and forms the perfect partner to establish our centre as the best in the country.
