REPs to represent at fitness trade show in Birmingham

Fri, 08 Sep 2017

The Register for Exercise Professionals (REPs) will be in attendance at the BP: Fitness Trade Show, taking place on the 12-13 September at the NEC, Birmingham.

The trade show will focus on education and the business of fitness, delivering an extensive exhibition with over 100 innovative brands that offer fitness solutions to various markets, including: Personal trainer studios, independent gyms, universities, schools and colleges, hotel gyms, boutique fitness studios, student accommodation gyms, corporate and company gyms, CrossFit gyms, gym chains and franchises, and residential care homes.

Such is the push to develop a trade show that delivers world class education, and brings together the right speakers to the right audiences, the BP: Fitness Trade Show has developed strategic partnerships with the likes of REPs, Advanced Coaching Academy (ACA), Pure Gym and Lift The Bar.

At the show REPs members can expect to learn and gain continuing professional development (CPD) points from a line-up of exceptional educators, including: Phil Learney of ACA, Luke John, founder of Shredded By Science and Martin MacDonald of Mac-Nutrition.com. Representatives of REPs will also be on hand over the two days to answer questions in the ‘Trade Lounge’.

The trade show will also see REPs hold its first Advisory Committee meeting, where stakeholders from the health and fitness industry and associated health professionals will be making decisions for the development of the organisation. Since UK Coaching became the sole owner of REPs, the organisation has established an independent endorsement provider in PD: Approval – who quality assure courses that provide CPD points – and a ‘Members Voice’ focus group, which consists of REPs members who feedback on membership benefits and developments. Additionally, REPs members continue to receive benefits, such as discounts on fitness equipment, education and software as part of their membership.
