Willows Health & Lifestyle Centre from Toowoomba Queensland took home the top national award from Fitness Australia, the industry’s peak body at the annual Gala Quality Awards function held in Sydney on Friday, 1 November.

The Quality Awards promote and celebrate industry excellence and the work the fitness industry does in helping everyday Australians to positively change their lifestyles and improve their health.

Fitness Australia has awarded Willows Health & Lifestyle Centre the inaugural Prize for Advancement of Excellence. The Prize is awarded to a fitness business that has previously achieved a GOLD standard and has made further significant improvements to its high quality service.

“This new Prize for Advancement of Excellence recognises businesses that have managed to exceed the very high standards they have previously achieved. Willows Health & Lifestyle Centre has built on its high quality service through implementing a software program that allows tracking a range of outcomes across its programs that will improve the effectiveness and quality of their work,” Ms Stace said.
