Founder of Liverpool Fitness Professional Awards, Jase Porter, said: “We were so excited to host our biggest awards ceremony to date, in partnership with Fitness PR who are extremely experienced in taking brands to a national platform and putting on fantastic events.
“Judging by the reaction of the 300 guests we did just that whilst raising money for our dedicated Liverpool charity An Hour For Others. Next year we’ll be hosting more Fitness Professional Awards around the country, but the great city of Liverpool will always be our home.”
