The Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) have teamed up with Global fitness brand Reebok and online training experts GymCube to help UK fitness professionals earn money online, as well as improve their knowledge and skills.
The trio have launched a brand new, innovative app developed by GymCube, that makes it easy to train clients professionally online and offers high quality educational content along with exclusive discounts.
As part of the partnership, GymCube will provide REPs members with exclusive access to the GymCube App, along with high-quality video content and customisable exercise plans, which REPs members can brand as their own.
GymCube Managing Director Kevin Foster-Wiltshire, said:
“Becoming an online coach in the past required start-up money and a daunting amount of technical work. We’ve built the GymCube App for instructors who are interested in coaching people online but are unsure where or how to begin. As a REPs member, they can register on the App for free, it’s simple and easy to use with no technical knowhow required, and payment to the coach is paid for by the client before a session starts.”
Supported by Reebok as part of its commitment to its ReebokONE instructor network, the iconic brand will assist in driving customers, who are looking for online coaching, to the app, providing an instant marketplace for exercise professionals who want to become online coaches.
Senior Digital Manager at Reebok Mark Allin, said:
“It’s great to see the GymCube app come to life. We are all positive this important innovation for the UK fitness industry will help improve the standards of online fitness. Reebok and REPs will help to connect qualified exercise professionals with online clients, and within the app coaches have the chance to join the ReebokONE instructor network for exclusive offers and events.”
To ensure high professional standards, REPs, which is owned by UK Coaching the lead agency for coaching in the UK, will provide assurance to the public that every coach on this platform is suitably qualified and is committed to continuing professional development.
Potential clients will be able to connect with REPs-accredited coaches for online training via the App’s streaming software.
Commercial Director at UK Coaching Andy Whiting, said:
“Our relationship with GymCube and Reebok is a real game changer for both coaches and the general public. The innovation from GymCube, market leading brand support and content from Reebok together with the quality assurance provided by REPs ticks all of the boxes from a consumer point of view and we are pleased to play our part going forward.”
