Scottish gym wins big

MRC Fitness Studio has won the best fitness business award in Ayrshire at the Scottish Retail Business Awards.

The business underwent a public vote online, a mystery shopper visit and a judging visit before taking home the prize.

The studio, founded over 34 years ago by Helen and Malcolm Clark, also saw Malcolm receive a Lifetime Achievement in Business award.

Former Mr Universe competitor Malcolm represented Scotland in the early 1960s in the competition and was responsible for the gym’s bodybuilding section, while Helen created a slimming club division.

MRC is now in second generation ownership by daughter Lorraine Wallace, who is concentrating her team on general fitness, rehab exercises, body maintenance and exercise in later life programming.

Lorraine thanked her team, everyone who took the time to vote and the members who have supported MRC Fitness over the past 34 years.
