The New Group Training Qualification Reflects Fitness Trends

EMD UK explain how changes in fitness trends in the group exercise scene have led to the creation of a crucial new Level 2 Group Training qualification, which better reflects trends relating to the format of classes and age of the people taking part

The 2018 National Fitness Survey, conducted by EMD UK, showed that group exercise now attracts 4.86 million participants every week. This is a growth of 1 million participants compared to the results of the same survey in 2016.

This demonstrates that group exercise has contributed significantly to the growth of the fitness sector, and this trend shows no sign of slowing down.

When you then consider that there are still an estimated 11.5 million people in England that are inactive, ensuring that group exercise delivers a quality experience that engages with all ages, abilities and interests is of paramount importance.
