Restating the importance of the EREPS Code of Ethical Practice

English
When fitness facilities reopen again across Europe, both fitness professionals and their customers must feel comfortable and confident that they are safe within the club. Customers must feel that their health and well-being are of paramount importance. This priority necessitates many adaptations in terms of the day-to-day operations of those facilities. Many fitness professionals will be working on an employed or self-employed basis within these facilities or may indeed be operating their own gym, studio, home-based or outdoor training space.
