Launched in 2007, the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) is an independent register of instructors, trainers and teachers working in the European health, fitness and physical activity sector.

EREPS recognises the qualifications and skills of exercise professionals and is an important assurance for the public and employers that their instructor or employee holds the appropriate qualifications to perform their role safely and effectively.

There are now registered fitness professionals working in 32 different European countries. The individual’s status of registration is determined by reference to identified health and fitness occupations (and essential skills).

Around 10% of EREPS members change country each year, mainly for employment reasons. EREPS facilitates such mobility of employment within Europe and beyond by co-operating with other registers around the world who use similar standards and systems of quality assurance.
