The Nordic Walking Conference (28th & 29th September 2012) proved a successful event for the REPs team, offering attendees the chance to explore the benefits of walking, gain latest industry news and understand new approaches health and fitness.
Set at the Heart of England Events Centre near Coventry, both days offered individuals plenty of networking opportunity as well as the chance to attend practical and seminar-based sessions.
Keynote speakers included Robin Gargrave, Bob Laventure from British Heart Foundation and Dr John Searle OBE, who gave an insightful presentation on Exercise and the Management of Obesity and its effect on healthcare in the UK. John’s seminar offered a ‘common sense’ approach for those looking to adopt a more healthy and active lifestyle.
Several industry delegates visited the REPs stand to discuss how they could join the Register and benefits of association.
Nordic Walking has recently become an endorsed qualification on the Register of Exercise Professionals and will allow qualified walkers the ability to join the Register.
We are extremely pleased to have this new category on the Register and encourage instructors join!
