Jubilee Hall Trust held their annual Staff Oscars event on Friday 11th May at the Seven Dials Club in Earlham Street, Covent Garden. This year’s celebration was slightly different with a 3-course sit-down meal, alongside manager’s presentations of the year’s achievements.
The special guest speaker was Gabriel Orayinka (pictured), a personal trainer at The Armoury, who recently won the Miami Pro 2018 Inked Fitness bodybuilding title. Gabriel talked about his training regime, and the great support given to him by other Jubilee Hall staff.
Winner of the Class Teacher of the Year was Trevor Andreas, a long-serving Spinning instructor whose classes received rave reviews from members, with one saying:
‘He makes my day every time I have a spin class with him. He has amazing energy and takes the time to chat with me every time I see him. He clearly loves his job and cares about us! I just adore him!’
The Simone Esther Welds PT of the Year award was presented by Simone’s mother AJ, and went to Armoury Personal Trainer, Anna Maria Bodzas, who received multiple nominations, and was described as being: ‘passionate, professional and highly motivating.’
Fitness Instructor, Daniel Hearn, was last year’s winner of the main Staff Oscar, and was again amongst the awards as Runner Up, but the winner of the Staff Member of the Year was Ahmed Mohamud. Ahmed has worked at Westminster gym for 8 years and one colleague said that: ‘He is an all round great person to work with. I am constantly learning while working with him.’
