Meet NZIS Alumni Dan Rodden, General Manager for McLean Park

With an entrepreneurial mindset and passion for the health and fitness industry, Dan Rodden has gone from strength to strength – with no plans to slow down.

After graduating with a Level 5 Diploma in Sports Management from the New Zealand Institute of Sport, Dan immediately landed a role with Sport Manawatu.

With a motivation to consistently achieve excellence, Dan had outperformed organisational expectations during his two-year term. Dan would later propel into the next phase of his career with further study through NZIS.

“Since graduating from NZIS, I have been able to combine my skills and expertise in personal training, events management and rugby coaching in a number of challenging roles.”

Dan is now forging the next challenge with Napier City Council as the Manager for McLean Park after 9 years with Pettigrew Green Arena, a premier indoor sports and events centre in Napier.

Last year, Dan launched Body Fit Training – a premier fitness franchise based in Napier. Using science and technology, Dan and his wife/business partner Jaimiee have been delivering excellent results for clients – incorporating scientifically proven training techniques through stimulating 50-minute training sessions.

Dan says NZIS courses were the foundation for his successful career in the industry – as well the philosophy behind his new business venture.
