Today Mhairi Vee McShane received her award from Fitness Australia.

This morning, a highly excited exercise community gathered in East Gippsland’s epicentre of Bairnsdale, Victoria.

The purpose of the congregation was to celebrate The HIIT Factory franchisee, Mhairi “Vee” McShane, for having her Six-Week Challenge named as the Victorian winner of Fitness Australia‘s #ActiveCommunities Award.

The festivities kicked off with a 20-minute Fatburn Extreme class, which saw 40 or so ladies and kids smash out some high intensity interval training. It’s always a true testament to a brand’s success when you look around a group fitness class and more than half the participants are voluntarily wearing your logo! Suffice to say, there was a sea of HIIT Factory logos moving up and down and around and around in this morning’s class.

Fitness Australia were on hand to officially present the award to Vee, and their Victorian rep reported that he’s never seen a community more highly engaged and having so much fun, as this morning’s group; confirmation that the #ActiveCommunities Award went to a worthy winner.
