Healthy Balance Fitness wins national award
On Friday October 14th, 350 fitness professionals kicked off their sneakers and donned suits and cocktail dresses to attend the 2011 Health & Fitness Industry Awards Gala in Brisbane.
These awards, presented by Fitness Australia, recognise individuals and businesses who have excelled in their contribution to the health and fitness of Australians.
“With almost double the number of nominations as in 2010, these individuals and businesses have competed against nominees throughout Australia who demonstrated superior levels of professionalism.” said Wendy McMillan, marketing manager, Fitness Australia.
Healthy Balance Fitness was fortunate to win not only the Victorian prize but we were ecstatic to receive Australian Personal Training Business of the year!
Thank you to our wonderful team of passionate, professional and hard working staff who have helped to make Healthy Balance Fitness the success it is.
Small business relies on the support, time, efforts and patience of friends and family. I would like to sincerely thank my partner, my friends and my family for chipping in and for understanding the highs and challenges of being self employed.
Thank you to our wonderful clients for inspiring us every day.
A huge thank you to Fitness Australia for not only this award but for all the help, support, advice and time they give to fitness professionals and fitness businesses, and the incredible work they do towards improving our industry.
As business owners, managers and team leaders we have great power, and I would argue a duty, to improve quality and reputation within the fitness industry by starting with our own teams. Through monitoring and improving the work/life balance of our staff, creating roles that provide challenge and job satisfaction, and encouraging professional development in-house, we’ll go a long way to decreasing workforce turnover, and increasing quality, standards, professionalism and reputation in the industry as a whole.
Here’s to another successful 12 months!
