Richmond wins highest award in the nation

Thursday 07 May 2020

Our very own Richmond Recreation Centre was awarded Quality Accredited Business of the Year at the 2020 Fitness Australia Awards, this follows just one year after gaining Quality Business accreditation.

This award celebrates our high standards across:

  • Professionalism
  • Safety
  • Customer Care
  • Information & Knowledge
  • People
  • Leadership

Mayor of Yarra City Council, Cr Misha Coleman has said of our winning journey, “the quality accreditation process was huge. It involved a coordinated effort from the team at Richmond Recreation Centre, who worked collaboratively across the Yarra Leisure and broader Yarra City Council teams. Achieving the accreditation should give our residents and members confidence that our services and programs are of the highest standard.”

Our centres are in great company with only 16 other gyms in the nation to hold this accreditation, so we’re incredibly excited to be setting the standard of excellence within the industry. Our commitment to safety, our diverse range of programs and passion for our community gave us the winning edge.

Cr Coleman says, “Yarra Leisure supports the social, wellbeing and leisure needs of our growing and diverse community. Serving our community in a safe, quality-accredited and supportive environment is the cornerstone of everything we do. We are honoured to win this award and look forward to continuing to provide best-practice services in line with Fitness Australia standards.”

Once again, we’re so proud to be sharing this news with you and we couldn’t have done it without our brilliant community. We can’t wait to see you all soon and continue kicking goals together.
