Our 2nd Annual Best of YEG Fitness Awards was an amazing night at the Yellowhead Brewery celebrating our readers choice nominees for the top fitness and wellness businesses and professionals in the Edmonton area. This year’s nominations were cast in 17 categories and received thousands of votes for everything from best physiotherapist to best personal trainer.

Our guests also raised nearly $1000 for our charity partner for the event You Can Ride 2 who have created programs and a bike loaning service to help children who have physical disabilities. Thanks to a generous donation from Go Auto of a signed Connor McDavid Team North America jersey and McDavid Oilers jersey, silent auction bidding helped us support this great local business in their projects for 2018.

We’re excited to finally release the names of the winners in each category.
