A West Molesey gym has been recognised as one of the best fitness facilities in the country at the national fitness awards.

Physique Warehouse, in Down Street, picked up the strength training gym on the year award at the awards ceremony at the Palace Hotel, Manchester, on December 6.

The gym, which is set out over two floors, was described by judges as a welcoming place that puts the needs of its members first.

Unlike other fitness facilities, the gym is split into two sections, with training equipment downstairs and a cardio suite with cross trainers and spin bikes on the upper floor.

Don McDuff, managing director and co-owner of Physique Warehouse, said: “It’s fantastic recognition of our efforts over the past seven years to build a real centre of excellence for our local community and to be ranked among some of the best gyms in the country is a real honour.

“We’re really proud of what winning the title says about our great team and what it says to our loyal members too, who, like us, keep striving to be the best they can be.”
