EREPS & EuropeActive

EREPS recognises the qualifications and skills of fitness professionals, as an important assurance for consumers and employers.

Our ultimate goal is to make sure that every instructor, trainer and teacher in Europe holds the appropriate qualification(s) to ensure that people can work out safely and effectively

We’re the keepers of the EREPS register, listing all professionals (members) that have been checked for compliance and equivalency against the EuropeActive educational standards. On a daily basis we support the professional needs of these members in the interests of professionalising the European fitness sector.

There are now EREPS registered fitness professionals working in more than 40 different countries. Through the application of common European standards EREPS facilitates mobility of employment, with 10+% of members changing country each year, mainly for employment reasons.


EREPS is a part of EuropeActive, the (leading) not-for-profit organisation representing the whole of the European fitness sector in Brussels.
