Did you go the Joe Wicks way during lockdown? Did you firm up rather than fat-out during Eat Out to Help Out? Did you use the interminable tedium of self-isolation to avoid the spouse by firming up in a fitness frenzy? Then ample rewards could come your way, as a national competition launches to find the nation’s lockdown sports and fitness heroes, with more than £600 worth of prizes up for grabs.
The Personal Best Award, run by specialist insurer Insure4Sport, celebrates sport and fitness professionals’ achievements across the UK. Open to entrants in three categories: personal trainers and fitness instructors, sports coaches, and teams and players. Insure4Sport want to find sports and fitness heroes who have gone above and beyond during lockdown to help clients, pupils, teams, or even the local community.
Three finalists will be chosen from each category, with a public vote deciding the winners. First place in each three categories will get their hands on £200 of Fitness Superstore vouchers, a year’s worth of free insurance (worth up to £100), and exposure through Insure4Sport’s marketing channels.
Insure4Sport Founder and Managing Director, John Woosey, said: “We’ve heard lots of great stories from our policyholders over the last few months, from personal trainers moving their sessions online to cricket clubs running online bingo nights to help fund the club. It has really highlighted the determination and resilience within the sports and fitness community.
“That’s why we’re looking to recognise your achievements with this award after what has been an incredibly difficult few months. Get your entries in now – we can’t wait to read them!”
