Lifetime Training has won the Training Provider of the Year Award at the TES FE Awards.


Celebrating a wide range of providers working in learning and skills, the TES FE Awards feature 13 categories to recognise and reward achievement.


The judges felt that the Bristol-based vocational training provider had displayed ‘reach and diversity’ in its provision and deserved to be the first winner of this new award.


Michelle Hyatt, MD of the Active Leisure Division and Lifetime Training commented: “This award win is a real step-up for Lifetime. Winning a national award of this stature showcases our continued commitment to both our employers and our learners and recognises the abundance of successes we’ve achieved for them to date. We plan to maintain this momentum by strengthening our team, improving our customer resources and building on our bespoke services.”

David Lloyd roll out Trixter bike installations


In a move to strengthen their high-tech equipment offering, David Lloyd Leisure (DLL) has installed Trixter XdreamV2 bikes in 12 of its UK clubs and at its Barcelona facility.


DLL first installed the original Trixter bikes in 15 clubs in 2010, and has since built a ‘strong relationship’ with the brand.


The latest version of the bike – XdreamV2 – offers a range of new features including a 23” HD Dell touchscreen and is billed as one of the most ‘technologically advanced’ exercise bikes on the market.


Lyndon Wood, Trixter’s sales director, said: “The HD graphics on the XdreamV2 create a truly immersive experience for our members and they can experience rides through cities including London, New York and San Francisco as well as on tour in France, Italy and the UK.”


Michelle Dand, group programming and fitness development manager at DLL, added: “We aim to provide our members with the best equipment. We’ve incorporated Trixter bikes into our facilities for years and they’re widely enjoyed by our members, so choosing to install the latest XdreamV2 was an easy decision.”

The confidence in our products and company has never been higher. I’m very proud of the results both Star Trac and StairMaster have separately delivered over the past few years. I believe we’ll be stronger under this new unified approach and look forward to continued growth in the years ahead.”
