Alpine Health & Fitness Finalists in Fitness Industry Awards

8 November 2012


Alpine Health & Fitness Finalists in the NZ Fitness Industry Awards

Alpine Health & Fitness have recently received notification of their being a finalist in the New Zealand Fitness Industry Awards. The Queenstown health and fitness centre is entered in the Medium Sized Club of The Year category.

The Fitness Industry Awards have been running since 2005, and are designed to recognise those making a contribution to the health and wellness of New Zealanders through exercise and fitness.

Alpine Health & Fitness Manager, Richie Heap, said is extremely gratifying to receive industry recognition for the work his team at Alpine Health & Fitness are doing, particularly having only been in operation for three years.

“We are first and foremost a community gym and these awards are not all about the gloss and glamour but about acknowledging facilities that are making a significant contribution to helping people in New Zealand improve their fitness and wellbeing. We all work really hard to help people reach their goals and that includes encouraging people in our community that would not traditionally be gym users to get into one of our programmes.”

The awards ceremony is an annual event, and has had prestigious guest speakers including MPs and Ministers Hon John Key, Hon Rodney Hide, Hon Murray McCull, Sue Kedgeley and Auckland Mayor Len Brown.

The 2012 Awards will be held on Saturday 24th November 2012 at the Pullman Hotel, Auckland where the winners will be announced.
