Australian Register of Exercise Professionals opened to allow for more degree-qualified people to work in fitness

Australian Register of Exercise Professionals opened to allow for more degree-qualified people to work in fitness
June 7, 2019

Fitness Australia has announced that it has broadened the Australian Register of Exercise Professionals to allow for more of those who have relevant University Degrees working in fitness.

Barrie Elvish, Chief Executive of Fitness Australia, who administers the official Australian Register of Exercise Professionals, explained “we’re listening to employers, and have recognised their needs for a more robust workforce, with the added credibility of being an AusREP.

“It’s important that as an industry body we recognise the work and contribution of Degree qualified professionals in the fitness industry. They play a great role in servicing clients, including athletes, people with disabilities or people with managed chronic health conditions - all supportive of our vision to encourage people in the corners of every community to be physically active for better health.

“We’re all for offering employers a broad choice of qualified professionals.”

Fitness Australia’s new direction promotes the notion of having a broad spectrum of advisors of physical activity in its realm.

Those who have completed an Exercise/Sport/Health Science Degree (or similar)* and want to Register with Fitness Australia should go to Fitness.org.au/

*Eligibility to be registered will be determined by Fitness Australia, based on the subjects completed, during the application process.
