The awards ceremony recognises individuals and businesses for their contributions to health, fitness, and wellness in the UAE
Wellfit, one of the UAE’s largest indoor fitness and multi-sports area, bagged six prestigious awards at the 2023 Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) Industry Awards held on February 9 at the Address Sky View Hotel in Dubai.
The awards ceremony recognises individuals and businesses for their contributions to health, fitness, and wellness in the UAE.
The Wellfit team was honoured with the Member Experience of the Year and Best Use of Technology awards, while the JVC branch of Wellfit was crowned as the Superclub of the Year.
The Tour de Wellfit programme also won the Fitness Event of the Year award, where Wellfit members replicated the 2022 Tour de France route in daily studio classes.
“These awards place Wellfit squarely at the forefront of fitness operators in the UAE, less than two years since the brand was founded. I’d like to express our gratitude to the independent judges from the REPs Industry Awards for this recognition, which vindicates the disruptive approach we have taken to deliver a truly world-class fitness and wellness experience in the UAE,” chief executive officer Dimitri Koutsoubakis said.
He added: “We are incredibly proud of the 140+-strong Wellfit team and the talent we have, as well the top-class facilities we are delivering and the enthusiasm and commitment from all 8,000 of our members across each of our branches.”
In addition, Pamela Pereira was named as the Female Personal Trainer of the Year, and Nikesh Naik was named the General Manager of the Year for their outstanding leadership at the Wellfit JVC branch.
The JVC branch of Wellfit, which opened in November 2021, is the brand’s first large-scale fitness center with an area of 75,000 square feet and is the largest indoor fitness and multi-sports area in the UAE.
The facility is equipped with advanced activity tracking and performance assessment systems, and the most significant digital tool is Advagym by Sony, a game-changing digital platform that makes tracking workout data simpler than ever before.
The 2023 Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) Industry Awards was hosted in conjunction with Dubai Sports Council, the event’s official partner.
“Wellfit has really raised the bar when it comes to member experience, facilities and all-round offering in what is a hugely competitive industry. These awards judged by numerous high-profile industry leaders, both based here and abroad, via written submissions and ‘mystery shopper’ visits, making them the most independent and reputable recognition programme in the local fitness industry,” REPs UAE director of operations Catherine Hanson-Farid added.
