awards 2011 websiteThrough superior customer care and the creation of ingenious schemes such as her Family Fitness strategy, Christine gives clients the motivational boost they need when outside influences override their enthusiasm for exercise. She has designed programs specifically for children, adults and mature citizens, which she has taken outside the gym to workplaces, community centres and schools. She believes in a lifelong commitment to good health and making fitness fun and a ‘way of life’.

2009 Australian Exercise Professional of the Year and NSW Exercise Professional of the Year Award

npr2 Surpassing 180 applicants, Chris Atkins was awarded the NSW Exercise Professional of the Year Excellence Award in 2009. Chris represented NSW at the National Fitness Industry Awards held in Perth. This prestigious ceremony saw fitness industry professionals from across the country competing for the highest accolades and recognition, with Chris being the National Award Winner. npr3In establishing Body and Mind 2000, Chris has created a unique environment in which health and fitness is promoted to meet the needs of individuals at ‘work, home and play’ in a non-threatening and highly motivating environment. With 20 years in the fitness industry, Chris’s skills in analysing the needs of employees in the context of work, family and community provided the right combination for the rapid growth of services. Chris has discarded the traditional ‘no pain, no gain’ idea to focus on fun activities to achieve fitness. Clients monitor their own data to keep track of their success and collaborate with Chris on their programs. The uniqueness of Chris’s approach is her ‘family focus’ that promotes health and fitness for workers by targeting the fitness of the whole family. Families are generally too busy to attend a gym on a regular basis. With innovative programs and a creative approach to motivating people to improve their health and fitness, Chris has established an excellent environment for fitness and personalised support that takes away the ‘effort’ of getting fit. There’s nothing quite like it in the industry!

What this award means to me:

Winning the NSW Exercise Professional and Australian Fitness Professional of the Year Excellence Award means a great deal to me as it epitomises my ideals and commitment to the promotion of fitness. Throughout my life I have maintained my passion for a healthy lifestyle with fitness as an essential part of life. Winning this award also acknowledges the hard work that goes into being a role model for clients. Unlike many other occupations, to be a ‘Exercise Professional of the Year’ means ‘walking the talk’. My own level of fitness is a measure of how much I believe in its importance at all stages of life. Fitness is the common denominator for people of all ages and backgrounds. The uniqueness of my approach for my clients and myself is to educate and support people to identify their own optimum level of fitness and work towards realistic goals in its achievement. The Award of NSW Exercise Professional of the Year highlights my philosophy of a ‘family focus’ on fitness. This strategy builds in the support needed in a society in which there are many influences that can reduce our motivation and where the fitness professional isn’t always available to counteract the barriers to a healthy lifestyle.
