National Fitness Awards 2013: enter your club today!

Entries are flooding in for the National Fitness Awards 2013, an annual event that this year sees CYBEX as proud sponsors of the category Regional Gym of the Year: Midlands and Wales.

Developed in partnership with Workout magazine, the National Fitness Awards celebrate excellence and achievement across the fitness industry, recognising individual and company achievements across 18 categories.

With a closing deadline of Friday 23rd August 2013, there is just over one month left for all entries to be submitted, before the results are announced at a star-studded awards ceremony which will take place at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on Friday 6th December.

The CYBEX-sponsored category, Regional Gym of the Year: Midlands and Wales, is one of four regional categories available to gyms who meet the required entry criteria;

  • Entrant gyms must have been in business for two or more years (i.e. have been operating since before December 6th 2011).
  • Each regional winner will have demonstrated excellent progress in areas such as, but not exclusively, member recruitment, retention and implementation of individual fitness programmes, improvements to facilities and staff training.

To enter, simply fill in the online entry form by clicking here, where you can also upload any supporting documents and information.

Commenting on the event, Workout editor Christina Eccles said: “The National Fitness Awards provide a great chance for clubs of all shapes and sizes to gain well deserved recognition for their hard work and achievements – and it’s really easy to get involved.

“It’s free to enter via our website and we’ve had some great entries for the 2013 awards from gyms around the country, with hopefully many more still to come before nominations close next month.

“The awards’ evening is once again shaping up to be a highlight in the industry’s calendar and each year support from our sponsors is invaluable in making the event a success. The Workout team is already looking forward to celebrating with everyone on the night.”

Rob Thurston, CYBEX UK’s commercial director, said: “Having attended the awards ceremony last year for the first time, I was really impressed with the evening and the industry-wide recognition that it gives to clubs and individuals alike.

“As proud sponsors of one of the Regional Gym of the Year categories, we’d of course love to see some CYBEX sites in the mix but are also really looking forward to seeing the nominations in full and being involved in what will be a fantastic event for everyone taking part.”
