Nominate unsung sport and fitness heroes

There are less than two weeks remaining to nominate your most inspiring and dedicated sport and fitness role model in Sheffield.

Having launched its Be A Game Changer Awards, The Gym Sheffield seeks to recognise incredible individuals in the local community who dedicate their time to inspiring women to enjoy the benefits of physical activity. Don’t miss this opportunity - a lifelong membership at The Gym Group could be yours!

With recent statistics highlighting that two million fewer women than men play sport across the UK, these role models could not be more vital. Maybe you’re a coach at a local sports club, dedicating your free time each week to encourage more women and girls to enjoy their chosen sport. Maybe you’ve launched a new fitness class empowering more women to take part in exercise, lose weight, tone up and grow in confidence. Whatever it is, The Gym Group wants to hear from you.

Leon Mantey, General Manager of The Gym Sheffield and Personal Trainer says: “Sport and exercise can be a daunting environment, not only for newcomers but also those women who feel they don’t quite fit the mould or have the confidence to wear the right kit. We know how powerful role models can be in providing inspiration to friends and the local community to instigate a more physically active lifestyle. Sometimes all it takes is a little belief and encouragement for someone to adopt a healthier lifestyle, reach their goal weight or enjoy a new sport. This is why we want to recognise the work of our unsung heroes and heroines living in the City. Whatever your story, we want to hear from you.”

To enter, simply tell us why you or a friend deserve to win the 2015 Be A Game Changer Award. Please email 150 words to explaining why the nomination is so deserving, details of their commitment to female sport and fitness in Sheffield and the results achieved. Entries must be aged 18 years and over. You have two weeks to nominate your hero - entries must be received by Thursday 30 April, 2015.

The winner will receive a year’s free membership at The Gym Sheffield and a fitness starter kit including a sweat towel, padlock and drinks bottle. The Gym Sheffield is located on Gibraltar Street and memberships start at £12.99 per month.

The Gym Group is searching nationwide for the most inspirational sport and fitness heroes. Each ‘local’ award winner will be shortlisted to be in with the chance of winning the Be A Game Changer crown. The overall winner will receive a lifelong membership to their chosen Gym Group site.
