We’re only three weeks away from the start of our International Standards Meeting (ISM) 2019, taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark this year. The ISM is EuropeActive’s main event for training providers, employers and other industry stakeholders. The 2019 edition will focus on the need for specialisation and differentiation in personal training. Several well-known Danish influencers from the fitness industry are actively promoting the event.
The ISM takes place on 21 and 22 November in the Black Diamond building of the Danish National Library in Copenhagen. The two-day programme comprises a great variety of topics and discussions, including the value of the European educational standards, the quality assurance of training providers and the professional skills for personal training.
Cecilie Lind will attend the ISM and will participate as a panellist on the second day when the practitioners perspective on differentiation and specialisation will be discussed. Originally from the tennis field, Cecilie describes herself as a ‘passionate entrepreneur’ and is now a well-known influencer in Denmark, with more than 111K followers on her Instagram account alone. She is the founder and co-owner of The Protein Kitchen, focussing on healthy and high-quality food, snacks and drinks on-the-go. She has been a personal trainer for 16 years, recently adding ‘online coach’ and ‘cook-book author’ to her impressive resumé.
Another influencer that will be present at the ISM is Thor W. Larsen. Thor: “As managing consultant and partner in CMS Denmark I help health and fitness businesses to become highly profitable by teaching them how to create more value for their customers and themselves.” Thor says his goal is to help professionalize the fitness industry and create a positive difference for people wanting to be stronger, healthier and happier. “I am grateful for the opportunity to use my years of experience as a personal trainer and strength coach to help others and look forward to connecting with likeminded fitness professionals at ISMX,” Thor concludes.
On stage as a moderator will be Jeppe Schulz, manager of the Danish training provider The HealthLab and member of the Fit&Sund Team of Experts. He holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology from the University of Aarhus’ faculty of Health. In his master’s thesis he found that strength training had a positive impact on patients with hip dysplasia, which is now being used throughout Denmark as a general recommendation.
These are just three of the many people that are anxiously waiting to make this event the best ISM ever, together with delegates from all over Europe and beyond. There are only 5 more delegate places available until we reach the sold-out status for this event, so make sure you book your place now, before it’s too late.
