About the Awards

The Exercise Industry Awards have a number of categories, for individuals, programmes and facilities that operate in and around the exercise industry. With the exception of three awards,  awards are based on an application process that is reviewed by a judging panel, with finalists and winners announced at a formal awards ceremony. Winners in past years have come from a range of backgrounds and each define excellence and success in their own unique way- we invite you to enter yourself or nominate a business or professional you think is doing great things.

The awards grow each year, as does the industry, with the standard and range of entrants, and the calibre of winners proving that the exercise industry is doing well. People and organisations who have entered have commented that “the awards have been a great opportunity, even just filling in the application made us think about our product and how we want to differ from others”. Just as the industry changes, the awards categories and criteria have evolved over the years, to accurately reflect the range of facilities, trainers and services, big and small across NZ.
