IREPS was launched in the year 2007 as an independent register of instructors, trainers and teachers working in the European health, fitness and physical activity sector.

IREPS recognises the qualifications and skills of exercise professionals and is an important assurance for the public and employers that their instructor or employee holds the appropriate qualifications to perform their role safely and effectively.

The IREPS Programme:

  • Provides an independent registration process (sometimes called a “license to practice”) for exercise professionals across Europe which is clearly understandable for operators and consumers;
  • Provides a public register with members published on a website directory;
  • Requires member adherence to an IREPS Code of Ethical Practice defining the rights, responsibilities and principles of being an exercise professional;
  • Supports the professional needs of its members in the interests of professionalizing the European fitness sector.
  • Any individual who wants to enrol for IREPS, shall possess level 04 Fitness Trainer certificate of SPEFL-SC (This is a mandatory requirement).
