REPs Ireland is focusing on building stronger relationships with industry employers to help promote industry standards. We recognise the need to engage with fitness facility operators to ensure they understand the importance on upholding standards to help professionalise the Irish leisure, health and fitness industry. We also want to ensure employers acknowledge the value of hiring exercise professionals with quality assured education and training.

As part of our engagement plan with industry employers we have developed an Employer Declaration of Commitment. This declaration has been created so that industry employers can showcase their dedication to professional standards in industry. In signing this declaration, industry employers are recognising the need to support the national register and will strive to attain the actions outlined under 4 key pillars of commitment:

  • Standards
  • Employment
  • Ongoing Education
  • Visibility

Please see full declaration here. We are asking employers to sign their commitment to the declaration on our website, where we will showcase all partners who in unity are helping to professionalise the fitness industry.

If you are an employer yourself, we ask you to get onboard, sign the commitment and show your staff and facility members / clients that you are actively promoting industry standards.

If you are an employee, we ask that you share this communication with your employer and encourage them to get involved. Further information can be found on our website here.
