What Do You Want From Your REPs Membership?

Are you ready to revolutionise your fitness career? As a REPs member, you're not just a part of an organisation – you're at the heart of a vibrant and passionate community that's shaping the future of the fitness industry. 

Unlike other professional bodies where your membership might feel like just a line on an invoice, at REPs, we believe in providing real, tangible value. That's why we're reaching out to understand what you want, what you need, and how we can better serve you.

This article outlines some exciting potential additions we are considering for our membership offering. Your feedback on these proposals is essential to us, so let's explore together how we can turbocharge your professional journey. And don't forget, your voice matters so make sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

The REPs Difference

We're not about 'business as usual' here at REPs. We believe in standing out and standing up for you. Being a part of REPs means more than just having a membership - it's about being part of a proactive platform that's geared towards propelling your career forward. This ethos forms the bedrock of what makes REPs unique.

While some organisations might be content to take your money and offer little in return, we’ve taken a different approach. Your success is our success. So, rather than focusing on the financial bottom line, we're committed to helping you reach the finish line - in every race, in every challenge, and in every goal you set for yourself.

The Future of REPs 

The direction of REPs is heavily influenced by the aspirations of our members. As we continue to shape our future, we're excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. One of the ways we aim to enhance our service is through a new Members Club that we're in the process of developing. Although we're not quite ready to reveal all the details, we want to give you a sneak peek into what we're working on and gather your feedback.

Specialist Qualifications

The first addition we're excited to discuss is specialist qualifications. We know that fitness is not one-size-fits-all. Each of you has unique areas of passion and expertise. That's why we're exploring the opportunity to provide qualifications tailored to specific areas of fitness. Whether your interest lies in physique and bodybuilding, nutrition, or corrective exercise, our aim is to cater to your needs.

Moreover, attaining these qualifications will earn you unique badges, a testament to your advanced knowledge and skills. These badges will differentiate you in a crowded market, appealing to both clients and employers.

So we'd like to know: what areas of specialism excite you? Which fields would you want our specialist qualifications to cover? Your thoughts are essential, so do share them in the comments section below.

Free Masterclasses and CPD Courses

As fitness professionals, we understand you have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and a relentless desire to improve. To support that drive, we are excited to announce that we will be offering free online masterclasses and CPD courses, designed to enhance your skills and knowledge in various areas, not just fitness, but also business and marketing.

Imagine having access to masterclasses from experts in the field, workshops to develop new skills, and seminars that provide you with the knowledge to not only launch but successfully scale your PT business.

These offerings are part of our commitment to help you grow and evolve as an all-rounded professional at no additional cost. We'd love to hear from you - what subjects or areas are you most interested in for these masterclasses and courses?

Interviews and Podcasts

How about some insightful interviews and podcasts? We're thinking of bringing in industry specialists, influencers, and even some renowned fitness personalities to share their wisdom, advice, and experiences with our members. This could be a fantastic way to stay inspired, gain some new insights, and keep abreast with the latest trends and innovations in the fitness industry.

Would you be interested in tuning into such interviews and podcasts? Do you have any particular person in mind that you'd love us to feature? Let us know your thoughts, we're all ears!

Groups and Forums

In the highly competitive world of fitness, we understand that it's not just about competing, but also about connecting. That's why we're creating dedicated forums and groups for our members to interact with each other, training providers, and employers.

We are firm believers in the power of communication and collaboration for generating exciting opportunities and fostering mutual growth. By sharing knowledge, skills, and experiences, we can learn and develop both personally and professionally. Through these platforms, you can connect with fellow fitness professionals, discover new training methods, learn about innovative business strategies, or even establish that pivotal contact that catapults your career to the next level.

These forums and groups will also provide a direct line of communication with training providers and employers, ensuring your questions and needs are addressed promptly and accurately. What topics would you like to see covered in our forums and groups? We're eager to make these platforms as beneficial and engaging as possible for you.

Digital Assets and Resources

Next on our list are digital assets and resources. We understand the importance of efficient client management and providing your clients with valuable resources. 

We're considering creating a library of digital assets like client consultation forms, Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaires (PAR-Qs), eBooks, and guides. These could cover topics like workout plans, client welcome and check-in procedures, and even nutrition and recipe sheets. Also, to help you enhance your online presence and engage with your audience, we're thinking of providing ready-to-use social media post templates and infographics.

What type of digital resources would you find most beneficial in your day-to-day operations? Are there specific topics you'd like to see covered in our eBooks and guides? Your insights will help us build a more robust and relevant library of resources.

Website Building Services

We are considering launching a service that would provide our members with customised websites. These wouldn't just be any old websites; they would be designed with fitness professionals in mind. 

Imagine this: A dedicated professional space online, where your clients can easily book sessions, make payments, and even access useful resources, all branded under your name. Just think what a professional impression you'll give any potential clients and how streamlined your client management process could be!

As we build this service, we'd like to understand your preferences. Would you value the freedom and flexibility to build and create your own sites using pre-made templates? Or, would you prefer a 'done for you' service where we take care of all the technical details?

Jobs Board

And, of course, we can't overlook the importance of the career opportunities in our industry. Our vision is to create a space where gyms, fitness businesses and professionals seeking new roles can connect directly, without the hassle of recruiters or irrelevant listings. This would be a space dedicated to quality fitness industry jobs, promoting career growth and providing our members with excellent opportunities.

Apparel, Clothing and Merchandise

Another feature we're considering is the introduction of REPs exclusive apparel, clothing, and merchandise. We understand that looking professional while you work is essential, so why not do it with some style? This could include branded uniforms, caps, and other items exclusively available to our members.

We believe this would not only make you look more professional but also give you a sense of pride in being part of the REPs community. 

Your Input Matters

We're brimming with excitement about the potential developments at REPs, all aimed at enhancing your experience and the value of your membership. But we also recognise that our vision is incomplete without your voice. This is your platform as much as it is ours, and we want it to serve you in the best possible way. 

Your opinions matter greatly, and that's why we're eager to hear your thoughts about our potential new additions:

  • Are there certain areas of fitness where you'd love to earn specialist qualifications?
  • Are there specific topics you'd like us to cover in our masterclasses and CPD courses?
  • Which fitness influencers or industry specialists would be your dream guests for podcasts and interviews?
  • What additional digital resources or assets would be most beneficial to your practice?
  • How do you feel about REPs exclusive apparel, clothing, and merchandise?
  • Do you have any suggestions for other resources, services, or opportunities that you'd like us to consider?

Whatever your thoughts, we want to hear them. Please share in the comments section below.

Your insights are crucial as we shape the future of REPs together. After all, we're not just a register, we're a community. It's our shared passion for fitness that will drive us towards an even brighter, more successful future. Together, let's make REPs the platform that truly represents and supports fitness professionals.
