A chance to thank Gyms, Personal Trainers and Coaches for getting us through lockdown.
A campaign, led by Jordan Fitness, in recognition of the support that Gyms, Personal Trainers and Coaches have provided during lockdown has received over 1000 nominations. A chance to celebrate and thank the leisure and fitness sector, for their contribution to keeping the nation both fit physically and mentally, Jordan called upon the public to nominate their Gyms and Trainers, who had gone above and beyond in lockdown, to support their clients.
Following a month of nominations throughout March, 500 nominations for Gyms and 572 nominations for Personal Trainers were received.
“The moment the lockdown roadmap was announced by UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on February 22nd, a weight was lifted and hope once again surfaced throughout the fitness industry. It felt like the right time to give people the opportunity celebrate what they had achieved in lockdown, with the help of their Gyms and Personal Trainers.
We had seen some incredible stories through our social media channels of how, with their fitness community, they were able to survive the lockdowns, isolation and loneliness. It was important to us that we gave the opportunity for this to be recognised, and our #CovidLockdownLegends campaign did just that” (Zak Pitt, Managing Director)
The Lockdown Legends campaign also offered a prize total of £7500 worth of Jordan Fitness gym equipment and fitness accessories, which gave three outstanding gyms and three Personal Trainers, a kit pack to support their reopening/outdoor fitness sessions.
Ross Paterson, of Synergy Group Fitness, one of the three selected Gym Prize Winners said:
“To be 1 of only 3 gyms across the whole of the UK to win the Jordan Lockdown Legends prize is simply awesome. As a family run gym, it’s been unarguably the hardest year of our lives, both professionally and personally, but the end is close and we just CANNOT WAIT to see everyone back in our 2 gyms again soon. Thank you so much to all our incredible members for sticking by us over the last 13 months and for submitting so many amazing nominations to Jordan. You guys rock
