REPs members are being invited to apply to be part of London 2012 and help staff the Olympic Village gyms at the games. Technogym, the Official Supplier of Fitness Equipment to London 2012, is responsible for the management of the Olympic Village Gym and other gym locations during the Olympics and Paralympics next summer. It is offering a number of places to REPs members (level 2 & 3) to join its team and staff these gyms. Comprehensive training which carries CPD points will be given prior to the event.
Technogym is also partnering with Team GB and ParalympicsGB to support ‘Our Greatest Team’ of 900 athletes 60 million strong – the largest ever GB Team and with the whole nation behind the team in this once in a lifetime event on home soil. Technogym London 2012 Project Director, Tony Majakas explains “We want to build on the amazing legacy of London 2012 by offering the fitness industry, and its trainers, a chance to be part of it in a very real way, as well as encouraging members of the public, inspired by the games, to embrace a healthier lifestyle through sport and activity. This is a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for REPs instructors.” REPs Registrar Jean-Ann Marnoch added: “We’re delighted to be able to work with Technogym on this and give our members the opportunity to be part of the Olympics on home territory. I’m sure many hundreds will apply – I only wish I was still instructing so I could be one of them!”
