IMPACT Magazine Feature – Canada's Top Fitness Trainers 2020
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I nominate someone?
Nominations are now closed. See below.
Who can enter?
Anyone who is currently working as a personal fitness trainer in Canada can enter the contest. Group fitness instructors are not eligible unless they also offer one on one personal training.
Can I nominate myself?
Yes you can!
Is there a fee to nominate someone?
How are the winners chosen?
All nominees will be scored based on specific criteria. For example, having fitness training certifications and education will garner points. Scores are based on expertise, community service, positive impact on clients and education, not on how many nominations he/she receives.
Do you give points for trainers who get the most nominations?
No. Trainers only need one nomination to be considered for the contest. Trainers who have multiple nominations will still only be scored once.
Who chooses the winners?
IMPACT staff will score and rank the nominees using a blind-scoring process which identifies the nominees by number only. The top 10 trainers with the most points are declared the winners.
Can previous winners be nominated again?
Yes, as long as they haven’t been featured twice already (Top Trainers 2018, Top Instructors 2019).
When does the nomination process close?
Nominations can be submitted until Nov. 1, 2019.
When will the winners be announced?
The winners will be announced publicly when IMPACT Magazine’s Jan/Feb 2020 issue is published.
How are the winners recognized?
Each of the winners will be featured in the Jan/Feb 2020 issue of IMPACT Magazine with a photo and short profile. In addition, they will be honoured at an awards ceremony and recognition evening in February 2020 where they will receive their award.
When will winners be notified?
Winners will be notified in late November/early December 2019.
