It is our emotions that lead us away from the right path. Unless we exercise some degree of control over them, we will end up victims of our own reality as emotions are an ever-changing variable. It is, therefore, essential to build up our defenses to carry on and persevere until we reach our goal. Our defense IS our motivation.
Thanks to an important collaboration between the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS), a European survey on fitness trends is now a reality. Alexis Batrakoulis, the Professional Standards Committee’s Deputy Director for EREPS, has served as the study’s author.
The ability to adapt to future changes in the fitness industry provides sectoral leaders with a competitive advantage. Knowledge on the future shape of the fitness market is therefore ubiquitous in the media and provides valuable insider information. Via our parent-organisation EuropeActive, EREPS has joined the movement of foresight activities to provide its members with the information they need to make informed decisions on developing their skills for future challenges.
