A further meeting of the Working Group developing standards for fitness centres took place in Brussels last week. The part 1 of the standards – now known as EN17229:2019 - were published last year and the new work is focussing on standards for the supervision of fitness centres.
This falls into two main areas. The first covers the supervision by operational staff which can be either in person or remotely through surveillance, or a mix of both. The second part covers the qualification requirements for fitness professionals.
