Covid-19 Update: EREPS membership extended by 6 months free of charge

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and the strain this is putting on the fitness and physical activity sector, the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) have decided to extend all existing EREPS Memberships by 6 months, FREE of charge.

Julian Berriman, Director of Standards, confirmed,

“The Coronavirus is affecting the global community and, in the Fitness and Physical Activity Sector lots of people’s income and employment is under considerable strain. Supporting our EREPS community through these challenging times is our top priority and this gesture will help to ease some of the financial burden instructors may be facing and give them one less thing to worry about”.

To further support the EREPS community, a dedicated information page for members is being created for the website. This will be regularly updated with the latest information, discounts and offers to members to support them through this period. This will complement the EuropeActive Covid-19 page which details how the sector is responding in a positive manner to the pandemic.

Detailed information for press and commercial use can be requested to Carlos Fernández, via Photos, logos and other materials supporting this press release are available via the said email address as well.
