About REPs
REPs is an independent public Register which recognises the qualifications and expertise of health-enhancing exercise instructors in the UK. One of our key functions is to provide a system of regulation for instructors and trainers to ensure that
they meet the health and fitness industry’s agreed national
occupational standards.

Membership of REPs provides assurance and confidence to consumers, employers and the health professions that all registered exercise professionals are appropriately qualified and have the knowledge, competence and skills to perform specific roles.

Members are acknowledged for their:

  • professionalism
  • adherence to the industry’s nationally recognised standards
  • ongoing education.

Members are bound by a Code of Ethical Conduct and hold appropriate public liability insurance. In order to remain on the Register, members must continue to meet the standards that are set for their profession through Continual Professional Development (CPD).
