HEALTH CLUB AWARDS THE WINNERS HEALTH CLUB AWARDS


énergie takes national crown at the members’ choice Health Club Awards


T


he énergie Group took the much coveted National Chain title at this year’s Members’ Choice Health Club Awards,


with its brand énergie Fitness For Women. It’s the first time since 2011 that the title has been won by a private operator, with Everyone Active dominating the category for the last two years and Nuffield Health winning the inaugural title in 2011. énergie also took the Best Budget


Chain Gold with its Fit4less brand, beating last year’s winners Fitness4less into silver spot. Jan Spaticchia, chair and CEO of énergie, said: “This has been an amazing year for us and we’re proud to have won


so many awards – testament to the effort we put in to looking after our customers. “The Members’ Choice Health Club


Awards has become hugely benefi cial to énergie and each of the franchisees, as it positions the winners as award-winning clubs or gyms in their communities – all voted for by their members. I’d like to say well done to each club that achieved excellence this year.”


Focus on people The fourth annual Health Club Awards – this year sponsored by Physical Company, USN UK and Les Mills in partnership with Health Club Management magazine – took place on the first night of LIW at the National Motorcycle Museum. The black tie affair was attended by


250 guests and hosted once again by TV presenter Mark Durden-Smith, who


kept the audience entertained with his unique brand of humour throughout the evening. Meanwhile Steve Bernstein, director of sales from sponsor USN UK, gave one of the highlights of the night when he stepped on stage to show off his skills as a Frank Sinatra tribute singer. Durden-Smith spoke about the


importance of the awards. “Getting your hands on one of these trophies says an awful lot about your club,” he said. “It sets you apart from the competition and sends out a clear message that you’re passionate about what you do and have your members right at the heart of all your thinking and planning. “You all have the one secret weapon


that’s key to the success of any club, and that’s really good people. It’s people who make the difference, it’s people who really connect with customers, and that’s what we’re here to celebrate tonight.”
