Claire and Agni

A shared love of working out brought soul mates Claire and Agni together. Claire, a personal trainer, met her partner Agni at the Hamilton gym he co-owns and manages.

The loved up couple are passionate renovators; they own their own house in Hamilton which they have renovated and now rent out, while Agni project managed the entire design, layout and fit out of his gym. Agni says his ‘fiery and design-savvy’ soulmate Claire will fight for what she wants, while Agni is more of the peacemaker.

The couple live with Agni’s mum and their two pet dogs in a lush green space that provides the zen vibes the couple are all about.  Agni, who immigrated from India to Hamilton with his family age seven, is a keen golfer and cricketer. He says he’s ‘full of good banter’ and not afraid to push the boundaries.

Claire, (Tainui and Ngapuhi), has a spiritual side; she loves crystals and spends her spare time doing freedom dance and yoga. She’s also a big op shopper, seeking out treasures for around the home.

Claire and Agni say being young, strong and physically fit will give them the edge over the other teams. They’re used to early morning starts and being enthusiastic towards others is second nature.

Claire says she’ll struggle being away from her fur babies  and her Mum’s home-cooked meals, while Agni reckons Claire’s ‘hangry’ tendencies might be their biggest issue!
