St Peter’s Leisure Centre has been named a winner at a prestigious fitness industry awards ceremony.
St Peter’s Leisure Centre beat off strong competition from all over the UK to be crowned Group Exercise Gym of the Year at the National Fitness Awards. The Centre was also runner up in the Local Authority/Leisure Trust Gym of the Year.
The awards, organised by Script Events and leading industry publication Workout, with support from headline sponsor ServiceSport, are now in their seventh year and recognise excellence and achievement in all corners of the industry.
To scoop the trophy, the gym went through a rigorous assessment process, which involved being visited by a member of the Workout team who explored the facility, chatted to members and staff and examined all areas of the business from member retention to customer service.
Reports were then compiled and passed on to an expert judging panel, which included top personal trainer Richard Callender and award winning gym owner Steve Johnson, who decided the winners in each category from a shortlist of up to seven.
Scott Bryce, operations manager at Burnley Leisure, said: “The award is fantastic recognition for all the hard work and dedication conducted by everyone within Burnley Leisure.
“To win a national fitness award for four consecutive years is unprecedented; our group exercise programme continues to go from strength to strength and demonstrates that Burnley Leisure is leading the way nationally within health and fitness provision for our local community.”
Awards were handed out in over 20 categories at a glittering ceremony at The Athena in Leicester, attended by over 850 people and hosted by boxing legend Ricky Hatton and award winning personal trainer and TV personality Katie Bulmer-Cooke.
