The 13th International Standards Meeting (ISM)

was held on the 3rd and 4th November in the beautiful city of Prague. This first live ISM for 2 years provided the perfect opportunity for all stakeholders in the professionalisation of the European fitness and physical activity workforce to meet and reconnect with colleagues and friends in an informative, stimulating and interactive atmosphere.

The ISM is a yearly event of EuropeActive, organised for training providers, national associations, employers and other stakeholders in the field of fitness and physical activity education from all over Europe. This year’s theme reflected the need to come together following some of the most critically transformative years in our industry’s history to rethink, rebuild and renew our sector and the Standards that underpin it.

This year’s programme included thought-provoking presentations from Dr. Paul Bedford, ‘The Retention Guru’ on the The Skills Trainers Need to Support Retention of Clients and Dr. Silvano Zanuso, Technogym’s Scientific and Research Manager on digitally connecting the health and fitness sector. Anna Szumilevicz of the EuropeActive Professional Standards Committee also facilitated interactive sessions on Standards development from health coaches to Pilates teachers receiving input and guidance.

Metamorphosis -"By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired."
