Best of physical activity sector revealed as finalists for ukactive Awards
The finalists of the physical activity sector’s most fiercely fought awards have been announced 2 May by ukactive.
Spanning the breadth of the sports and physical activity landscape, the finalists of the ukactive Awards represent the year’s leading stars from the public, private and third sectors.
The awards, which have replaced the Flame Awards as the industry’s most prestigious accolades, will take place at Active Uprising in Manchester on the evening of 21 June.
Last year’s Leisure Centre Operator of the Year, Everyone Active, returns to defend its crown with finalists from five centres but will face stiff competition in an expanded award which covers any club or centre – from small independents, studios and boutiques, through to low-cost budget gyms, local authority/leisure trust operated centres, and clubs that are part of a nationwide chain.
Health Commitment Statement
We are transferring from the traditional Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) to the Health Commitment Statement (HSC).
The HCS is the evolution of the PAR-Q, which has existed for the past 15 years. The HCS reflects government policy and legal trends, which aim to shift responsibility for personal health from the operator to the user. UK Active, the fitness governing body, is taking the lead in allowing operators to be more accessible while facilitating a better working relationship between fitness and medical sectors in the community.
The HCS has been developed by Fitness Industry operators, medico-legal professionals and health providers to support the evolving requirements of users and operators. This has also provided an opportunity to align the HCS to the skills and expertise of fitness professionals established through REP’s.All members, users and customers are asked to read the HCS. The HCS will be displayed in various locations within all our venues and can be provided on request. A copy is also available here.
