About the Editor
The European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) uses the EuropeActive standards to ensure that exercise professionals are qualified to offer safe and effective fitness programmes to their clients across Europe. EREPS provides consumers, employers and partners in medical professions with the confidence that registered trainers are both competent and able to work to support its Code of Ethical Practice, which defines the rights and principles of exercise professionals. Referencing the EuropeActive standards and being registered mean that trainers have met the minimum standards of good practice and that they are committed to enhancing their skills and professional status through a process of lifelong learning.
EREPS is regulated by the EuropeActive Professional Standards Committee using the official European Qualifications Framework (EQF), which describes the knowledge, skills and competencies exercise professionals need for registration.
