Welsh Fitness Awards Champion 2021 – High Street Fitness

Founder of The Welsh Fitness Awards – Wesley Skene said, “The last 2 years have been truly horrendous for Wales and the Welsh fitness industry. However, the dedication and resilience of the fitness community has shone through. The Welsh fitness industry has adapted and gone above and beyond to remain successful. During the worst crisis of the past 70 years, the Welsh fitness community has thrived and bounced back even stronger.”

“2022’s awards now have an enormous challenge to rise above the standard set by this year’s awards.”

“We now look forward to the inaugural Welsh Fitness Expo and Welsh Fitness Classic – July 2nd at the All Nations Centre in Cardiff.”

The Welsh Fitness Awards are proudly sponsored by EMD UK, V3 Apparel, Keto-Pro, with official media partner and sponsor Wales247. The awards were also an opportunity to raise funds for our nominated charity. On the night a grand total of £250 was raised for Dreams and Wishes.
