Winners of Active Training Awards announced

By Deven Pamben    01 Dec 2016
GLL won Employer of the Year at the Active Training Awards

Leisure industry organisations including GLL, Future Fit Training and Les Mills UK were some of the winners at this year’s Active Training Awards.

Organised by ukactive, more than 250 delegates from the physical activity sector gathered at Hilton Reading in Berkshire for a conference and awards ceremony.

As well as the above, James Pearce, BBC Sport television presenter, handed out awards to Body Transformation Academy, Places for People and ICON Training.

Individual Activity Champion of the Year was Richard Scrivener, a fitness professional from Train Fitness International, which also picked up an award for Best Use of Technology.

Outstanding Achievement awards were given to Active Nation, Lifetime Training and Jubilee Hall Trust.

The conference and awards event focused on professionalisation of the workforce, fostering innovation, and laying the foundations for long-term success.

The conference was opened by ukactive chair and crossbench peer Tanni Grey-Thompson, followed by a keynote speech by Professor Miquel Lladó, the academic director for the ukactive Future Leaders Programme and lecturer at the IESE Business School in Barcelona. He spoke about the secrets to building a winning culture within the workplace.

There were also sessions on workforce excellence and the role of the physical activity sector as the preventative frontline for the NHS.

Steven Ward, ukactive executive director said: “Augmenting a world-class workforce is one of the biggest priorities for the physical activity sector as we seek to unlock its latent potential and transform the health of the nation.

“The Active Training Awards offer a great opportunity to take stock of our progress and recognise the success of those companies and individuals who are leading the way. I’d like to say a huge well done to all of the winners and finalists, who together have demonstrated a real commitment to building a better workforce and driving our sector forward.”

Tara Dillon, Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, chief executive officer, added: “All of the finalists and the sector as a whole can take credit for the progress made in the past 18 months, while understanding that we must continue to elevate standards moving forward.”
