Harrogate business Gambaru Fitness, scooped Regional gym of the year at the prestigious National Fitness awards in Manchester where over 700 people from across the UK represented their clubs.
Gambaru was shortlisted to the last six in the north.
Upon receiving the award, Jonathan Walker, owner of Gambaru Fitness, said: “I couldn’t be more pleased with our win as it is an enormous boost to my team, our members and Harrogate as a whole.
“Business has not been easy for anyone over the last couple of years and awards like this signify you are achieving results and moving forward against all odds in such a tough economical time.”
This prompted a visit from Mayor of the Borough of Harrogate Coun Mike Newby to congratulate Jonathan and his team on the award.
Coun Newby, a member at the gym, said: “I knew my hard training at Gambaru, which translates to: Do your best no matter what your ability, deserved recognition on a National scale!”
