Welcome to the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards

The Exercise Industry Awards have been running since 2005 and are designed to recognise those making a contribution to the health and wellness of New Zealanders through exercise and fitness. The awards ceremony itself is an annual event and has had prestigious guest speakers including MPs and Ministers Hon John Key, Hon Rodney Hide, Hon Murray McCully, Sue Kedgeley and Auckland Mayor Len Brown. The ceremony’s MC is media and fitness personality, Suzie Clarkson.

The awards are co-timed with the FitEx Conference, making the last weekend in November THE weekend for the fitness and exercise industry.

Year after the year, the number of entries to the awards continues to increase which goes to show the value the awards has in our industry. People and organisations who have entered have commented that “the awards have been a great opportunity, even just filling in the application made us think about our product and how we want to differ from others”.

The awards are about recognising people for the job they do in our industry and also celebrating the important impact that our industry has on the lives of some many New Zealanders.

Without our sponsors the Exercise Industry Awards would not be possible, for a full list of those who are supporting us in 2016 please click here.

The winners of the 2016 Exercise Industry Awards will be announced at the Awards Dinner and Ceremony hosted in Auckland City on the 26th of November 2016.
