Sport & Physical Activity, The Edge has been shortlisted for the fourth year in a row at the National Fitness Awards, this time in the category of Education Facility of the Year.

The National Fitness Awards is an annual event which recognises excellence and achievement in gyms throughout the country. The Education Facility of the Year category is aimed at gyms which are based within a school or college or on a university campus.

Shortlisted gyms have all been scored on being able to offer a  wide range of excellent facilities, with staff engaging with students, staff and the wider community; successfully spreading the positive word of health and fitness to the younger generation. Judges have shortlisted Sport & Physical Activity and scored The Edge highly based on the rage of equipment and group classes available, as well as how as a service we are able to support a range of sports clubs and elite athletes, and how The Edge facility enhances the experience of those living and working on campus.

James Buckley, Physical Activity, Health and Wellbeing Manager had to say …

The National Fitness awards are one of the most highly respected, independent and sought after awards in the Health and Fitness industry so to be shortlisted again, this time in the newly established Educational category is fantastic! The shortlisting panel were particularly impressed by our commitment to customer service excellence across the breadth of services on offer, and our integrated, inclusive, and collaborative approach to delivering Physical Activity, Health and Wellbeing services as part of a whole-university approach of supporting students, staff and the wider community in becoming more Physically Active.

The final results will be announced this Friday 30 November at the awards ceremony held at The Athena in Leicester.
