Pure Gym Southampton was named best club in the UK (for clubs with more than 2,000 members), narrowly beating Pure Gym Aberdeen (silver) and Everyone Active Spelthorne Leisure Centre (bronze).

énergie Fitness for Women, Eastbourne won the Club of the Year award for clubs with less than 2,000 members, edging Thornton Hall Country Healh Club (silver) and Crown Spa (bronze).
