May 2nd 2017

Hat-trick of Awards for Horizon Gyms

The gym at Havant Leisure Centre has been voted ‘Gym of the Year 2017’ by its members for the second time in three years in a competition run by The News. The large, modern gym which is run by the charity Horizon Leisure Centres, opened in 2014 and won the title of ‘Gym of the Year’ in 2015 in the same competition.

The award has been kept in the family, and is the third year that a Horizon gym has won the competition with the Waterlooville Leisure Centre Gym picking up the title in 2016.

Howard Broad, Chief Executive at Horizon Leisure Centres said “This is yet another fantastic achievement for Horizon Leisure Centres and we are delighted to have won The News’ prestigious award of Gym of the Year for the third year running and beating off the challenge of all the other local gyms in the area!

Winning this award is particularly pleasing as it is our members that we have to thank for taking the time and trouble to vote for us. It is the greatest compliment any operator can receive and an endorsement for all the hard work and commitment shown by everyone who work at Horizon in providing high quality gym facilities for our customers.”

In addition to winning local awards both the Horizon gyms have, over the past few years, been shortlisted in the National Fitness Awards gym of the year competition. This is seen as a huge accomplishment for the two local gyms given the strong competition from around the whole Country.

Jamie Gargett, a long-standing member of the gym said “I am a gym fanatic and have been to many gyms but the Havant Gym is by far the best mainstream commercial gym I have used and we are very fortunate to have this facility and a team that listen and respond to our input.”
