Fitness 2014 Survey

SkillsActive, the Exercise, Movement & Dance Partnership (EMDP) and REPs are delighted to be working in partnership to launch the largest ever Working in Fitness Survey 2014.

Launching this month (16 October 2014), the Sport England-supported 'Working in Fitness' (WIF) survey will remain open until 28 November.

The 2014 survey, the largest and most extensive of its kind, is open to the fitness industry's entire workforce, covering a host of key issues including training, career pathways, earning potential, professional development and
much more.

SkillsActive CEO, Ian Taylor said: "I am delighted that SkillsActive is working in partnership with the Exercise, Movement and Dance Partnership on the WIF survey. "Our shared commitment to establishing a further understanding of the intricate details of this sector will serve us well into ensuring that we can continue to offer individuals, training providers, awarding organisations and employers within fitness the best information, advice and guidance across major topics."

Daran Bennett, CEO of the Exercise, Movement & Dance Partnership, said: "We are pleased to be partnering with Skills Active and REPs on this extensive piece of insight. Gathering the thoughts and feelings from a vast array of fitness professionals is going to be extremely enlightening. The WIF survey will aid us in expanding and growing both capacity and quality in our dynamic, inspiring sector. We're certainly looking forward to the results and the positive outcomes that follow. I urge all those who love working in fitness to complete the survey to help improve your sector."

REPs Head of Membership Greg Small said: "Working in Fitness will prove an invaluable tool as we continue to safeguard the public, ensure exercise professionals feel empowered to progress and that we can offer a structured career pathway to this committed group of professionals. "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 am delighted that our partnership with EMDP allows us to do this.

"I encourage as many REPs members as possible to complete the survey - the more information we obtain, the stronger we can become."
