Gym celebrates after winning top industry award
Stringer’s Gym has been rewarded for the level of customer service it provides for its members at a prestigious awards ceremony in Manchester.
The club picked up the Customer Service Award at the National Fitness Awards, which took place at the Palace Hotel, hosted by presenter and former TV Gladiator Caroline Pearce.
The awards – organised by fitness industry magazine Workout and supported by headline sponsor Servicesport – are now in their fourth year and recognise excellence and achievement throughout the fitness industry.
To win the award, Stringer’s Gym beat off competition from hundreds of entries from clubs around the country who were whittled down to a shortlist of six in each category.
Each shortlisted club – from The Shetland Islands down to Cornwall – was then visited by a member of the Workout team, who chatted to staff and members and took a look around the facilities, before compiling a comprehensive report to be passed on to an expert
This year’s judges included The Biggest Loser personal trainer Charlotte Ord and top fitness expert Dean Hodgkin.
Our judges said: “Members have the option of paying by cash, cheque or debit card. Owner Ian states that this enables all of our members to have regular contact with our staff, ensuring a flexible approach to memberships.
“Stringer’s offers a relaxed, helpful environment. This fitness centre is carving out a niche that sets it apart from the rest.”
Over 700 people, including Coronation Street star Kym Marsh, attended the glittering ceremony, where awards were handed out in over 20 categories.
