Are you a new gym that's got off to a flying start? Are you filling a gap for quality leisure facilities in your local community or engaging a new audience in exercise? If so, then our Best Newcomer category is for you. To be eligible for this award, you must have opened your club on December 7 2017 or later - making your business less than two years old on the date of the 2019 National Fitness Awards. Clubs which have been open for longer than this should enter an alternative category. When it comes to picking our finalists, we'll be looking for evidence of why you set up your club, your biggest successes so far and what your plans are to build on its initial success. As well as providing details on the equipment and services you provide, we'll also expect you to tell us about your retention figures, branding and marketing strategies, as well as details of who your team members are and the valuable contribution they make to the smooth running of your facility. This is a hotly contested category and we're looking for the best new gym in the whole of the country, so clubs should make every effort to ensure their entry stands out from the crowd.
This new category covers exactly what it says on the tin … we’re looking for anything and everything that fits under this heading! It’s aimed at gyms and PTs who are either offering nutritional advice/classes/guidance; it’s aimed at gyms who have gone down the ‘diner’ route where they serve the best in healthy and nutritious meals on site and/or supply a healthy meals service where they prepare the meals and then members/non-members buy them and take them home to ensure an on-going healthy diet. It’s also aimed at anything that shows improvement and innovation in the field of health and nutrition – it may be a programme you’ve introduced; a product range. You’ll be just as passionate about what your members eat as you are about their fitness programmes and you’ll be educating and encouraging them to commit to a balanced diet as part of their physical well-being.
Peak physical fitness is a must for members of our Armed Forces and as such the men and women who work as Physical Training Instructors have to be at the top of their game … encouraging, challenging and supporting servicemen and women in their charge.
They play a huge part in making our military services a force to be reckoned with and moulding personnel for us all to be proud of. Many of our friends and sponsors work with the Armed Forces providing them with the latest equipment and technology – they see the amazing work carried out by these instructors and that’s why we have introduced this exciting new category the Armed Forces PhysicalTraining Instructor of the Year.
It is sure to be a keenly contested category so make sure your nomination gives us as much information about their career and achievements to date and what makes them stand-out in an area brimming with talent and dedication. We would be delighted to be given the opportunity to salute you ...
