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 imbedded 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.”

Irfan Younis, CEO of Creative Oceanic, who run the awards, said: “We’re delighted to bring the Women’s Awards back to the North for the second year, and are sure this year will provide its fair share of brilliant talent and inspiration.”
