Comox fitness studio in running for provincial award

Voting in B.C's People's Choice Awards continues through to July 12

The accolades continue to pour in for the Comox Community Centre’s Fitness Studio.

The Town of Comox is pleased to announce that the Comox Community Centre’s Fitness Studio is not only the top ‘Workout Facility’ in the Comox Valley as chosen by online voters in HQ Comox Valley’s “Best of Comox Valley 2013” competition, they are also a finalist (in the top four) in  the ‘BC’s Best’ People’s Choice Awards for Best Fitness Centre on Vancouver Island,” Comox Recreation’s manager of recreation Mandy Johns stated in a press release.

The Comox Community Centre is the only public fitness centre in the top four on the “BC’s Best” list for Vancouver Island, the other three being private franchise clubs in Victoria; Goodlife, Steve Nash and VI Fitness.

Johns notes the Comox Community Centre opened the doors to its new fitness studio in the spring of 2011. The studio has over 5,000 square feet filled with Precor and Stak equipment and another 800 square foot spin and trx annex.

Rave reviews from customers include statements such as “the space is well utilized,” “great layout,” “ roomier than most studios with plenty of space between cardio equipment,” “great area set aside to do floor work,” and “it’s the feel of the place, the atmosphere, everyone feels welcome.” Comments on the friendly staff as well as the cleanliness of the facility were also high on voters lists.

“The management and staff of the Comox Community Centre thank all of their customers for their support and encourage the people of the Comox Valley to go online and vote for Comox,” Johns said. “BC’s Best” will be putting all those that submit their nominations into a draw for some terrific two-day getaways on the Island and off, she added.
