The 8th meeting of the Working Group (CEN/TC 136/WG 2) for developing standards for fitness centres took place in Berlin last week. 10 European countries were represented plus EuropeActive, as the set of proposals were analysed in detail. Because of the large number of experts involved there will now be a 9 month extension to the development of the standards, with an expected final version prepared by October 2017. The standards will cover all aspects of the running of fitness centres, including topics of client contracts, emergency procedures, environmental conditions, hygiene and safety standards, levels of supervision, and qualifications of fitness staff.
