A gym in Henham has won a national award.
Gym Vision Fitness, near Stansted Mountfitchet was named Boutique Gym of the Year at the 10th National Fitness Awards in Leicester on Friday, November 29.
Owner, Ollie Emsden, 26, said: "Receiving this prestigious award means that out of the whole of the UK our Gym, in a small village called Henham has won.
"The other gyms shortlisted were from big towns, such as Sheffield, Rossendale, Tunbridge Wells, Ross-on-Wye and Tavistock. So to win the whole thing considering where we are situated in a small village is a massive achievement."
