Birmingham based gym, Rigs Fitness has been named a winner at a prestigious National Fitness Industry Awards ceremony. The club beat off strong competition to be crowned ‘The Best Functional Fitness Training Gym in the UK’ and ‘Regional Gym of the Year Midlands & Wales Runner Up’ at the National Fitness Awards.

Rigs Fitness are no strangers to these National Awards having won ‘The Best New Gym in the UK’ 2013, and ‘Regional Gym of the Year Midlands & Wales Runner Up’ 2014.

Rigs Fitness Owner, Sam Smith, 28 from Solihull said: “We’ve been dedicated to our niche as a Functional Fitness Training Gym for 4 and half years now and to gain recognition on a national level as the best Functional Fitness Gym in the UK is the best accolade we could receive”

“Receiving this award has solidified Rigs Fitness as one of the most successful independent gyms in the UK and at under 5 years old one of the most successful new businesses in the fitness 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.

National Fitness Awards’ director Judith Halkerston said: “This year’s winners should be very very proud – the high standard of entries made it a tough job to select a final shortlist never mind a winner and runner-up in each category.

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.
