The awards will take place on 2 July at Telford International Centre and will be held in conjunction with the annual Flame Conference

This year's event has undergone a shake up to better reflect how the leisure sector has evolved and to create opportunities for clubs, industry suppliers and stakeholders to celebrate how their work impacts health.

The Flame Awards 2014, sponsored by Matrix, will also see the introduction of new awards and for the first time operators and suppliers will be up against each other in a number of new categories.

These new categories include ‘Workplace Wellbeing’, ‘Shaping the Future Generation’, ‘Go Green’ and ‘Go Outdoors’.

Sweating the details
The ubiquity of screens offers our sector greater reach than ever before. The challenge is to find creative solutions to transform this perceived threat into an opportunity
The UK’s first hotel with high altitude rooms has opened its doors, hot on the heels of the launch of a hypoxic chamber at the new Third Space in London. Is altitude training heading for the mainstream? Kath Hudson reports
Years ago, gym retail meant a small selection of basic products sold behind a counter. Now retail can turn more profit more than anywhere else in the gym, with opportunities in activewear, supplements and specialised gym equipment. We look at what’s working according to three industry experts
Our industry needs to get older people significantly more active if the UK is to avoid a major crisis in social care, says a new report. Abi Harris explains what the key findings mean for you

Is going sub-zero the next big thing in health clubs? We take a closer look at the benefits of cryotherapy and some of the options on offer if you’re thinking of making the leap into the big chill
What role can sport and physical activity play in preventing crime and anti-social behaviour – and are our prisons making the most of this opportunity to change lives? Kate Cracknell reports
As an operator, you need to pick your price point and do what you can for that, but do it really well. We have great quality facilities, but what we offer isn’t luxury
In London, people are familiar with the boutique concept, but elsewhere it’s still relatively new, so initially it was a challenge to educate people in Manchester about our benefits, when they were used to paying budget club prices
The capitalist model may create wealth in the short term, but if it doesn’t address the broader issue of serving society, it risks losing its licence to operate. If inequality grows, that might force more difficult change
Our education programme, Mind Set, covers everything from gut health and weight management to positive psychology and behaviour change
As long as people do the 30-minute circuit, twice a week, they are guaranteed results, and that’s a simple message to get across
You can do lots of great stuff, but find there are still large numbers of people who don’t engage. If you can start to understand why, then you’re onto something
I’ve always felt uncomfortable with the idea that membership of a full-service club might cost £60 a month, but a personal trainer will watch you do press-ups for an hour and also charge £60. One of those two numbers is wrong and I think the boutique industry will expose that
In a 45- to 50-minute Blaze workout, members can burn anything from 500 to 1,000 calories
I think we’ll start to see more pay-as-you-go concepts, as they offer better value for money and flexibility. HIIT will stay popular and we will see more use of data in workouts to engage people
