Xercise4Less founder Jon Wright has been nominated for the Inflexion Entrepreneur of the Year award as part of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards.
The award recognises entrepreneurs who have achieved sustained levels of growth and strong financial performance through a culture of innovation, resilience and an ethos of inspiring others through their leadership style.
Former professional rugby player Wright established Xercise4Less in 2006, tapping into the budget gym market by offering memberships starting from £9.99. Since then, the chain has gone on to open 54 gyms across the UK and has further expansion plans on the horizon.
Wright faces stiff competition for the award, going up against the likes of Theo Duchen and David McDonald of Acturis, Frank Hester of TPP and Andrew Hawes of Newton Europe among six others.
Now in its 15th year, the awards ceremony will take place on Tuesday 15 November, at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, where the winners will be revealed.
