‘The Best New Gym in the UK’ – Rigs Fitness, Moseley, Birmingham win ‘Best Newcomer at this years National Fitness Awards’
This years National Fitness Awards, took place at the Palace Hotel in Manchester on Friday 6th December. The National Fitness Awards have won widespread praise for their events in the past, and this years ceremony was no exception. Over 800 people attended what turned out to be the best night yet in our modest 16 months of being open! What a first 16 months they have been!
Back in September we wrote, “With hundreds of entries each year it truly is an honour to be shortlisted…”: and it was. Just to be recognised as one of the top 6 new gyms in the UK and to be in with a chance of winning and becoming the best new gym in the UK was a fantastic achievement. It was hard to be optimistic of winning with such stiff competition coming from 5 other fantastic facilities in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category which was the most competitive category in the history of The National Fitness Awards. To win this award and officially be the best new gym in the UK, is an absolute dream come true!
I’d like to think that in Rigs Fitness the judges saw a gym and a fitness team that are truly trying to stand out as unique. We use phrases like, an unwavering dedication to functional fitness and ‘real’ training without compromise; and these aren’t just random words used to get new members, it’s truly what we believe and are trying to achieve at Rigs. And to have gained such recognition for this in such a short amount of time is real reward for all the hard work and dedication that has been put into making Rigs Fitness what it is today!
We need to say a massive thank you to all the members, athletes, teams, schools, colleges, and businesses that use Rigs Fitness every single day. The hard work put in by all the team at Rigs has been made a lot easier by having such great people around us every day.
Also, a massive thank you to ‘The Fitness Awards’ and hosts Workout Magazine for putting on such a fantastic evening that we will not be forgotten in a hurry. And a big thank you to all of the judges who have given us such recognition for what we are trying to achieve at Rigs.
Winning this award and being given the title of the best new gym in the UK has put the icing in the cake to an amazing first 16 months at Rigs Fitness, but what it’s also done is filled us with confidence to keep pushing the gym. We’re now more confident than ever to continue to succeed with Rigs Fitness… National Gym of the Year – We’re coming for you:)!
