Please note: Nominations for Trainer of the Year are now closed.

Is your bootcamp instructor the best in class? Perhaps your yoga teacher is the ultimate yogi. Or maybe your running coach is miles ahead of the rest?

From PTs to Pilates instructors, fitness trainers played a pivotal role when it came to helping us stay fit and healthy over the last year, be it via group exercise classes hosted on Zoom, personal training appointments held in the park or - when restrictions allowed - in-person studio sessions.

As part of the Fit&Well Awards 2021, we want to celebrate these amazing and often unsung heroes by inviting nominations for the title of Trainer of the Year. 

We're keen to hear about fitness instructors from all disciplines who have provided the inspiration and guidance you needed to keep training during the most challenging of years.

It's the perfect way to show just how much their encouraging words, killer workouts and positive vibe has contributed to keeping your body and mind healthy over the last 12 months.

The eventual winner - who will be decided by our judging panel and revealed during the Fit&Well Awards week (starting April 12) - will be interviewed for and featured on the site and across our social media channels.
