Fitness First is delighted to announce that four time Olympic Gold medallist and multiple world champion Libby Trickett will be joining us this year as an ambassador for our New You Achievement Awards.
Libby's extraordinary swimming career - spanning more than a decade, is an excellent display of the successes that can come about if you train hard and are dedicated to achieving your fitness goals.
With seven Olympic medals under her belt, Libby's contribution to Australian swimming has been inspiring. But being one of Australia most loved and high profile athletes hasn't always been easy... She's faced a number of challenges over the years, including making a comeback out of early retirement, and getting into peak physical condition to compete once again at her record breaking standards. Then there was a brush with depression that left her feeling at odds with the girl known Australia-wide for her beaming smile.
Libby is the perfect brand fit for Fitness First, and especially for our New You Achievement Awards in the way that she has gracefully handled life up's and down's and managed to turn them into wins. She is living proof of the positive effect of exercising and maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle.
"I am honoured to be the ambassador for the Fitness First New You Awards - These Awards are really a celebration of the role that exercise and training has had for so many of our members - from things such as helping them to triumph over adversity and make life altering changes to their lifestyle, to those who have worked hard to achieve a particular sporting goal or change to their physique." She said.
Entries open in July we look forward to hearing all of your inspirational transformation stories. And don't forget, $35,000 is up for grabs for the person who takes out the overall awards this year.
