THE votes are in and we can officially reveal that the Wigan Evening Post Gym of the Year is... the PT Studio!
Steve Barlow and his team have been crowned champions after two months of voting seeing off some stiff competition from rival establishments.
“I’m so proud, this means a lot,” said Steve Barlow, who owns the Queen Street studio.
“Everybody from the gym has been voting for us so a huge thank-you to them.
“We’ve gone from strength to strength and built it up bit by bit.
“We have a great team. There’s me, my brother Tom and my sister so it’s a family business. Then we have a few others so there’s about six of us in total.”
We’ve created a community, everyone supports each otherSteve Barlow
Readers were invited to nominate their favourite gym before it got whittled down to a shortlist before the final 10.
And Steve believes it’s the family atmosphere at his gym which sets them above the rest.
“We’ve created a community, everyone supports each other,” he added.
“It makes people work that bit harder. We’re a private run studio so it’s more personal to the clients.
“We provide results-based training and have body transformation challenges with an eating plan and everything is monitored.
“It’s a little more personal to your commercial gyms. We do bootcamps and circuit-based training then there’s boxercise too.”
