Nom­i­na­tion joy for gym

Rossendale Free Press - - Family Announcements -

A GYM has cel­e­brated its first an­niver­sary with a spe­cial award nom­i­na­tion.

Fit4Life Health and Fit­ness, based in Ris­ing Bridge, opened 12 months ago and al­ready has around 1,000 mem­bers.

Owner Luke Hamer said the gym has now been short­listed in the fi­nal five of the Na­tional Fit­ness Awards’ ‘ best new­comer’ cat­e­gory, out of 2,300 en­trants.

Luke, 33, who lives in Hasling­den, said it would be the ‘ ic­ing on the cake’ if they win. He said: “We’ve been through an in-depth ap­pli­ca­tion process where they’ve had mys­tery shop­pers in the gym to look at what we of­fer and they’ve been check­ing our web­site and so­cial me­dia posts. It will be great for the club if we could win it. If we don’t then we’ve still been recog­nised by our peers as one of the top five new gyms in the coun­try.

“To make it through to the fi­nal five is fan­tas­tic but it would be great to fin­ish it off with a win. Our first year has gone re­ally well. We’ve hit ev­ery tar­get that we’ve set and have a strong mem­ber­ship and I think this award re­flects that as well.”

The win­ner will be an­nounced at a cer­e­mony in Le­ices­ter in De­cem­ber.
