Welcome to the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards


2021 Exercise Industry Awards

There’s no time better to acknowledge the work of exercise businesses and professionals around NZ.

There has been some amazing examples of resilience, and exceptional service under trying circumstances in the last 24 months- the Exercise Industry Awards is a way to acknowledge that effort.

The purpose of the awards remains unchanged – to acknowledge and celebrate the excellence of facilities, organisations and individuals in all its diversity.

Some important updates on the 2021 Exercise Industry Awards:

  • Our categories remain the same, so whatever your role or type of business there is an award for you/your business
  • The judging criteria has been amended to reflect the impact of COVID-19, including client numbers and finances.
  • The live judging will still take place (using a panel of specialist judges like in previous years), but will be virtual

So, just like previous years, we urge you to enter yourself as well as nominate your work colleagues and others in the industry that you know are doing amazing work.
