Going For Gold – Fitness Evolution Makes Finals of Prestigious National Award

Fitness Evolution, Burnley College Sixth Form Centre’s outstanding onsite Sport and Fitness education centre and gym has been shortlisted in one-of-the UK’s most prestigious fitness awards.

We have been recognised in the Best Education Facility category in the National Fitness Awards which rewards excellence and achievement in gyms and individuals across the UK.

The awards have returned this year with more entrants than ever before.

Finalists have been carefully chosen after studying the entries from across the country and trophies will be presented at a glittering awards ceremony in November in The Athena in Leicester.


“I’m so proud that Fitness Evolution has been shortlisted as a finalist in the National Fitness Awards 2021. Our passion, our determination, our professionalism and the expertise of our team have shone through – leading to our recognition as one of the best educators in the country.”

Ash Alderson

Manager at Fitness Evolution

Ash continued:

“To be selected from such a large field of competitors and singled out for praise is testament to the hard work and talent of everyone including all our learners at every level.

“Throughout the pandemic we continued to provide the service we knew that everyone in the community needed for their mental wellbeing as well as their physical health.

“We can’t wait to attend the finals next month.”

It’s been an incredible year for Fitness Evolution at Burnley College which is about to open its brand new £6.5 million extension – which will include the latest health and fitness technologies including a state-of-the-art Strength and Conditioning gym, a thermal performance spa, an environmental chamber, cryotherapy and a plunge pool.

We have also seen the launch of our industry-leading Strength and Conditioning degree through Burnley College University Courses.

A National Fitness Awards spokesperson said:

“All our shortlisted facilities should be really proud of their achievements.

“It’s been a really tough time for the industry and it has taken a huge amount of hard work and innovation for them to keep delivering at such a high level.

“It’s a real achievement to make the shortlist as the calibre of entries has been amazing.”

The awards are organised by Script Events in conjunction with leading B2B fitness magazine Workout, and sponsor ServiceSport.
