It’s finally here, the votes are in and we can finally announce the winner of the Halifax Courier’s Gym Of The Year 2016.

Since January, we have asked you to vote for who you thought should be given the coveted crown of the best gym in the area.

We wanted you to take into consideration what it was that you thought gave your gym the edge, what lifted it above its rivals and gave you what you wanted.

And you did - thanks to the strength of this year’s entrants we’ve had hundreds of votes registered for the gyms that featured in the top 10. But in the end there could be only one winner - JC Health and Fitness, Burley Street, Elland.

Owner Jason Whiteford, who runs the gym with his partner Claire Healey, said: “It’s absolutely fantastic, we’ve only been here for 19 months and we now have more than 500 members, from 125.

“It’s great to be recognised for our hard work, which seems to be paying off.”
