Statement regarding Sports Coach UK purchase of REPs

Fri, 27 Jan 2017

Following the announcement this week that Sports Coach UK has purchased the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) in its entirety we can confirm that there are no plans to merge the register with any other organisation.

This purchase is about widening our horizons within the physical activity landscape. What this means for our customers is we can now enhance our offer to members and ultimately improve the service of the register.

We are committed to working with the industry to ensure that REPs is current and fit for purpose. We will ensure that the qualification and Continuous Professional Development offer from REPs, meets the current national and professional standards expected by employers. We will also work with an independent endorsement provider to ensure the provision of our service meets the required high quality.

Fitness professionals make a significant and vital contribution to an active nation. Whether this is a personal trainer, leader or an instructor, these individuals provide the excellent experiences needed to ensure that people across the UK become and stay active. We intend to provide the necessary high quality support to help them in their everyday efforts.

In order to enhance our offer to members we will:

  • Bring the register back to life and make sure more people can access the opportunities available from being part of the most recognised register for the fitness industry.
  • Provide benefits that work for our members.
  • Keep members up to date with the latest industry information.
  • Make it easy for members to promote themselves as fitness professionals.
