Working in Fitness 2014 is the largest ever survey of the fitness workforce, launched by SkillsActive, the Exercise, Movement and Dance Partnership (EMDP) and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).
Open to the entire fitness industry, including those working in dance, the survey covers key issues, including training, career paths, earning potential and professional development. It aims to gain insight into a thriving UK industry, which grew to £3.2 billion in 2012. NHS research illustrates that dance is the UK’s fastest-growing activity, with 4.8 million people regularly attending community dance groups in England alone.
Greg Small, head of membership at REPs, said: “The best way to improve our understanding and knowledge of the fitness industry is to engage directly on the key issues, and this is exactly what Working in Fitness 2014 is doing. I encourage as many REPs members as possible to complete the survey – the more information we obtain, the stronger we can become.”
To take part in the survey, see https://www.snapsurveys.com/wh/s.asp?k=141293050621. The survey is open until November 28.
The full report will be available early in 2015. Visit www.emdp.org for updates on the research.
