WINFIELD -- Chris Rotella, Chief Operations Officer of Fitness Services for Generations Physical Therapy and Snap Fitness in Winfield, Teays Valley and Barboursville, was named Manager of the Year at the Snap Fitness International Convention on Oct. 2.

Snap Fitness is an international chain of 24-hour health clubs. It hosted its convention at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas to bring Snap Fitness owners and operators together for a week focused on bringing quality service and equipment to members.

The Snap Fitness locations in Winfield and Barboursville consistently rank among the top franchise locations in the world, according to a news release. Snap Fitness has more than 1,500 locations in the United States, Mexico, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, United Kingdom, and Egypt.

"We have the most exceptional staff in our fitness facilities, which is the reason that this award was given," Rotella said in the news release. "It was humbling and great recognition for the wonderful fitness centers that we have here in West Virginia."

Dr. Eric Tarr, CEO of Generations Physical Therapy and Snap Fitness in Winfield, Barboursville and Teays Valley, said he was also grateful for the recognition.

"We have had top performing clubs in Winfield and Barboursville from the day we opened," he said in the release. "We look forward to bringing that same level of excellence to our newest location in Teays Valley."

Rotella has been the COO of the three Snap Fitness locations in West Virginia since the first ground breaking in Winfield in 2010.
