Since January we have asked you to vote for who you thought should be given the coveted crown of the best gym in area covered by our newspapers in Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough, Nidderdale and Wetherby.

We wanted you to take into consideration what it was that you thought gave your gym the edge, what lifted it above its rivals and gave you what you wanted.

And you did, thanks to the strength of this year’s entrants we’ve had hundreds of votes registered for the gyms that featured in the top 10.


But in the end there could be only one winner, Train FX Fitness Centre at Thorp Arch Trading Estate near


Dedicating the win to his loyal members, owner Danny Dickson said: “We were surprised. The gym is probably the smallest on the shortlist!

“It shows the loyalty of our members. They were really excited about it.They kept coming in and asking if we had heard anything about it, so we are delighted to win.”


In second place came Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre and in third place came Nuffield Health in


We thank all the gyms that participated and hope that they all enter again next year to see if they can win in 2017!
