An audit of the votes cast in the 2012 Members Choice Health Club Awards is taking place this month (May), before clubs in 14 UK regions are told if they have made the shortlist by 1 June. Individual categories have also been introduced this year to recognise the efforts of fitness employees.
The full shortlist will be published in July's Health Club Management magazine and winners are to be announced at a gala ceremony held at the Hilton Birmingham on 18 September - during Leisure Industry Week.
Members Choice Health Club Awards MD Simon Brown said: "We are absolutely delighted that the efforts from clubs to get members involved in the awards has really paid off. The competition is all about engaging members and motivating staff and that's exactly what we've achieved."
First held last year, the Members Choice Health Club Awards are designed to give members the opportunity to rate their fitness clubs in a range of areas, such as service levels, facilities and – importantly – value for money.
