We are delighted to announce that this year at our National Convention which will be hosted at Leisure Industry Week (LIW), the Keynote speech will be delivered by our ambassador, Olympian and 2010 Commonwealth champion Louise Hazel.

In her keynote Louise Hazel will be discussing the importance preparing for peak performance and how everyday people and personal trainers can learn from elite athletes and how she used this as inspiration for her new training plan.

Speaking to REPs Louise Hazel said:

“I’m really looking forward to delivering the Keynote speech at this year’s convention.”

She continued to say:

“As a REPs member myself I’m also looking forward to be able to meet and network with fellow fitness professionals, whilst gaining some new skills along the way.”

This year’s programme is bigger than ever and includes a range of workshops with leading Training Providers such as Belrobics Limited, Fitness Anywhere UK (TRX Training) and British Military Fitness. So be sure to bring a positive attitude and take part in these immersive and highly energetic activities.

One session which is certainly to be a highlight is KBT Education’s Weightlifting workshop, fresh from winning Commonwealth gold, England and Team GB weightlifter Zoe Smith will be assisting the session alongside her coach Sam Dovey. The workshop will include demonstrations and instruction of the best weightlifting variants that are applicable for sports performance, based on the needs analysis of the athlete’s anthropometrics and levels of mobility.

We also have a wide range of new theoretical based content to stimulate and develop understanding, including sessions on nutrition, running physiology and business development.
