We are delighted to announce that together with ANIF, the non-profit association representing the Italian fitness & physical activity sector, we have launched REPS-Italia, a national register for fitness professionals which will work alongside EREPS to guarantee that members retain a high mark of professionalism and quality. Those who join REPS-Italia will automatically also become members of EREPS, ensuring that fitness professionals can more easily work abroad with recognisable qualifications in the fitness and physical activity sector. 
EREPS will continue to provide operational services to support REPS-Italia including the accreditation of Italian training providers and the acceptance of Italian fitness professionals onto REPS-Italia and EREPS. ANIF meanwhile will promote the national register to their many stakeholders through events and promotional activities while helping to raise the standards for exercise professionals in their country. They are well placed to foster closer links with relevant governmental institutions, which is incredibly important for cementing our sector’s professionalism and standing.  
These arrangements will encourage greater standardisation across national registers and will help to make administrative and operational processes more consistent. But the most obvious benefit is that Italian instructors and trainers will have a register in their own country and language, serving their best interest while aligning to European standards and EREPS.
