The nominees are in. With another record number of votes cast we’ve been working hard to get the list ready to share. We know many of you have been waiting to see if you made the list and others are interested to see if others feel the same way about their favourite studios.

Our readers have spoken and here is the list of the top 5 nominees in each category. They are listed in alphabetical order and the winners will be announced at the Best of YEG Fitness Awards Night in February being hosted at The Station on Jasper. We’re confirming the details and will be opening ticket sales to nominees first and then have tickets open to the general public to join them after they have been given a chance to secure their tickets.
