TODAY we can reveal the lucky 18 gyms that have made it on to our shortlist.
So now it’s time to get voting to make sure your favourite gets recognised in The News Gym of the Year competition.
Details on how to vote below
The nominations flooded in and, as you can see on the shortlist, we’ve got gyms from across the area in the running.
Speaking about the award, Mark Waldron, editor of The News, said: ‘You got the ball rolling by nominating, so please get behind your favourite gym and vote for them.
‘Without your votes they can’t win, so please get going.’
