We would like to say a big congratulation to Kim Ingleby who has managed to secure her place in the final 10 of Life Fitness’s ‘Personal Trainers to Watch’ program.
The ‘Personal Trainers to Watch’ program rewards and recognises personal trainers from all over the globe that embody passion and commitment to healthier lifestyles.
The competition started back in June, with the nomination process closing at the end of June. Since then the public have been able to vote for their favourite on the Life Fitness website. Now it has been whittled down to just ten finalists from around the world included our very own Kim Ingleby!
Full of enthusiasm Kim Ingleby said, “I really can’t believe I’ve made it to the Final 10, totally amazing, humbling and exciting. I love what I do, always learning, developing Energised Performance and working with a huge range of amazing clients all over the world, it’s a true privilege”.
Kim then expressed her gratitude to those who nominated her, “a huge, big thank you to everyone who nominated me, I have no idea who did, but I really, really appreciate it, thank you! It’s especially poignant being short listed this year, as I have had an interesting few months overcoming Weil’s disease. I will do my very best at the Live Final Judging on 27th September, fingers crossed”.
With less than a month to until the final, the finalists will face panel of industry experts who will take the following criteria into consideration when judging:
- A Personal Statement
- Tenure as a PT
- Client experience
- Third party endorsements
The finalists will also be taking part in a personal trainer’s workshop on the day which their participation levels will go towards their final score. The winner of this prestigious competition will receive a $5,000 USD cash prize.
We wish Kim the best of luck for the finals and you can too by sending her tweet @kimingleby. The finals will be taking place at Nuffield Health, Fitness and Wellbeing Centre on September 27th 2013!
