A CHORLEY fitness instructor and influencer has been shortlisted in the prestigious Young Entrepreneur of the Year category at the English Women’s Awards North on July 1.

Ex-Team GB swimmer Lucy Davis has built up hugely impressive credentials in health and fitness - she is a qualified personal trainer, online coach, health and fitness influencer, and owner of Lucy Davis Fit.

She has almost a quarter of a million followers on her Instagram page @LucyDavis_Fit and over 100,000 YouTube subscribers who watch her regular advice videos.

Lucy said: “I am absolutely honoured to be nominated for this award.

“Having swam competitively at a British and International level in previous years, I have a strong ambition and high self-motivation embedded in me, and it’s great to be recognised as someone who is committed and entrepreneurial.

“My goal is to help people enjoy the process of changing their life for the better - enjoy exercise, love the food they eat, get into the best shape ever and feel confident within themselves. I am a massive believer in a healthy mind and body equals a happy life.”
