National Fitness Awards

18th September 2015

Local gym in the running for top national award

Lifestyle Fitness, Avon Valley College has been shortlisted for a prestigious fitness industry award having beaten off competition from gyms all over the country.

The club has been shortlisted in the Community Involvement Category for the National Fitness Awards, the biggest free-to-enter awards in the industry, which recognise excellence, innovation and achievement in gyms.

Club Manager Matt Sinclair said “We are delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious award. We strive to involve ourselves within the local community and it is a great honor to be recognised for our work with the College, local sports clubs, the military and of course charities.”

The national awards are organised by leading fitness industry magazine Workout, with support from headline sponsor ServiceSport, and in each category up to seven finalists have been selected from the hundreds of entries.

The gym will now be visited by a member of the National Fitness Awards' team who will take a look around the facilities, interview the manager and chat to members and staff before compiling a comprehensive report, which will then be passed on to an expert judging panel to choose the worthy winners.

They will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on Friday December 4 at The Athena in Leicester, which will be hosted by fitness entrepreneur and TV personality Katie Bulmer-Cooke and Olympic swimmer and commentator Steve Parry.

National Fitness Awards’ director Judith Halkerston said: "It's been another great year for the National Fitness Awards with an excellent standard of entries – the work going on in fitness facilities up and down the country is inspirational and every gym which has made the shortlist should be very proud of their achievement thus far. Congratulations to them all.

“The NFA team members are busy packing their bags and preparing to travel thousands of miles from as far north as Aberdeen to Cornwall and The Channel Islands in the south to see the fantastic work that is going on up and down the country every day within the health and fitness industry.”
