Background to Fitness and Gyms...

It could be argued that the fitness and gym industry has been developing since the 1950's as the increase of labour saving devices have generally decreased our daily routine activities as well as increasing our leisure time. Fitness can be split into Aerobic - the ability of the body to process oxygen to move the body and Anaerobic - the ability of the body to undertake strength, power, speed or endurance activities.

The use of purpose built Fitness and Gym facilities is now common across the world to provide both a safe place and qualified staff that can help develop an activity programme for the individual. Group sessions are often provided and based of the numerous techniques that have been developed to support and motivate participants to improve their fitness.

Generally the facilities are indoor and will be provided by corporate bodies, local business, charities and Local Authorities, a recent development is the provision of Outdoor Gym's in open public spaces. 


All activities offered by clubs overseen by a National Governing Body will be required to adhere to new procedures to protect participants. The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) and Exercise Movement and Dance UK (EMDUK) are working with Sport England to support providers to get back to activities.
