The MoveGB Awards recognise the best of local fitness businesses in Bristol and Bath with a range of categories from Best Gym, Best Yoga / Pilates Instructor right through to Best Fitness class and more.

After an initial public voting stage that received 10,000s of votes the finalists were selected and their entries were accessed by a team of expert independent judges.

The focus of the award was on the customers experience and we are delighted that not only did we receive several nominations for our fantastic instructor team but our sites as well.

We are thrilled to announce that we come out on top of the below categories…


Best Leisure Centre: Better Bath Sports & Leisure Centre

One of the voters comments … “The site is in need of investment and there is no running away from that but you can tell that the staff are doing the best they can with what they have. Gym staff are always happy and there to help. The Reception staff make time to speak to you and get to you know. Looking forward to the investment.”


Best Fitness Class Instructor: Charlie Babb

One of the voter’s comments … “I have never been a huge fan of exercising, seeing it as something that's more obligatory than an enjoyable task. I  first met Charlie when he was a class instructor at the local leisure centre and found him friendly, non judgemental and motivating.” “He always had a smile on his face and was there to make that class as fun and as enjoyable as possible!”


Best Pilates Instructor: Patsy Willis

One of the voters comments … “Since starting this friendly class, I have felt much more energized and have improved my flexibility too. There is a lot of variety so it keeps it interesting. .”


Best Personal Trainer: Ollie Hayes

One of the voters comments … “Ollie is a fantastic personal trainer. He tailors the sessions to suit your specific needs / goals and makes them enjoyable and fun.”


We are so pleased that our fantastic instructors and site have received this recognition as we know how they all put in such effort to make their classes and sites a real success and we are extremely proud that they are getting much needed credit!
