Beddie underlines importance of using registered exercise professionals

Beddie underlines importance of  using registered exercise professionals
August 19, 2012

FitnessNZ Chief Executive Richard Beddie has reminded the New Zealand public of the importance of working with registered exercise professionals.

Beddie told Australasian Leisure Management "(the) message to the public is simple, make sure you only use the services of a registered exercise professional.

"In addition to ensuring a person is suitably qualified and competent, REPs registered exercise professionals are annually checked to ensure they are up to date with their education, as well as being bound by the industry code of ethical conduct, which offers extra protection to anyone using them."

Beddie added "anyone can claim to be a 'personal trainer' and also claimed to be ' qualified', what's important is that this has been independantly checked against agree national standards.

"If your trainer isnt registered with REPs, don't question it, just get a new trainer."

New Zealand REPs has just started its annual re-registration of more than 2,000 New Zealand exercise professionals, and over 150 exercise facilities as part of the on-going process to ensure exercise professionals and facilities continue to meet the high standards required by REPs to remain registered.
