AMBITIOUS personal trainers have been invited to put themselves forward for the fitness industry’s biggest free to enter awards scheme - before it's too late. 

The National Fitness Awards, organised by Barnsley based Script Events in partnership with industry magazine Workout, recognise excellence in all corners of the fitness industry, with over 20 trophies up for grabs.

Last year's finalists included Carly Tierney, who trains clients at DW Sports Fitness, and Katie Ford from Fit4It Hybrid Gym in Tankersley.

Shortlisted trainers will then be invited to attend a glittering awards ceremony at The Athena in Leicester in December where the winners will be crowned.

Nominations can be made via the website www.nationalfitnessawards.co.uk until Monday (August 22).
