Elusive gold award caps off a fitness trifecta for Hub
HUB Total Fitness has taken out a trifecta of awards this year, with the most recent being the elusive gold awards from Fitness Australia.
The gold award is highly sought after, as only around 40 fitness centres in Australia have won it for 2013.
It follows on from Hub Total Fitness centre's wins in the Australian Institute of Management Excellence Awards for top owner/manager of the year, and the top health and fitness category in Gladstone's Best in Business awards.
Hub Total Fitness received the Gold Quality Award from Fitness Australia, the fitness industry's peak body, for its proven ability to provide quality service across its business.
The Quality Awards, held in Sydney last month, are the highest accolade that the industry can award to a fitness provider.
Hub Total Fitness manager Natalie Thomas put together the business case for the award.
"We knew we were worthy of an award since we moved locations," she said.
"It was looking at where you'd been and where you were going."
She said a large part about what the trainers did was for the benefit of the community - ultimately, caring about people.
Hub Total Fitness director Sean Corbet said it was great to see a privately owned fitness centre take the award in town.
"There was a lot of work in (applying for) the awards and we previously haven't taken part, but we thought we were ready," he said.
The fitness centre, in Sunvalley Shopping Centre, supports the Gladstone Road Runners, Park Run, and numerous other events that promote a healthy lifestyle.
