Shal starts study this year for his Master’s degree while continuing to work for the Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union as strength and conditioning trainer for the Hawke’s Bay Academy’s up-and-coming young players.
Waikato Institute of Technology qualified Nikki with a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science in 2006. Nikki brings a vast knowledge of the health and fitness industry to her role at EIT. Nikki enjoys playing and coaching a number of sports, especially volleyball, but focuses her training around the demands of being a soldier in the Territorial Force of the NZ Army.
