Snap Fitness celebrates its inspirational network


Leading fitness franchise Snap Fitness had reason to celebrate at its 2024 EMEA Summit with eight winners crowned at a glittering awards night.

The awards recognised the outstanding groups and individuals that have contributed to the brand’s ongoing success as it achieved record membership growth in 2023, far exceeding fitness industry averages.

The awards were judged by Snap Fitness’ in-house Support Office team, considering several key criteria for each award. All winners were invited on to the stage to accept their awards which were presented to them by a member of the team and one of the event’s sponsors.

“The awards showcased everything great about the Snap Fitness network,” said Kevin Yates, CEO of Lift Brands EMEA. “We aim to live and breathe our One Team value and a huge part of that is ensuring we recognise the incredible achievements in our network and people feel their efforts don’t go unnoticed.

“There were some tough decisions to make amongst our team when crowning the winners which is a great problem to have! Congratulations to all the winners and we’re already looking forward to next year’s Summit and awards.”

The award winners were as follows:
