Round up of the REPs Scottish Convention!

Nearly 100 attendees enjoyed a variety of sessions at The REPs Scottish Convention held in The Lagoon Leisure Centre, Paisley. The event included a brilliant keynote presentation from Phil Hanlon (University of Glasgow) on ‘What’s next for the Health of Society?’ – Phil was passionate, knowledgeable and very entertaining.

REPs Register, Jean-Ann, who was present on the day, gave the following feedback: 

The day was a great success with a selection of our industry’s best, giving invaluable advice and insight.

The day began with a slick BOSU (courtesy of the Physical Company) and Blast FX session (thanks to Fitness FX) led by Greg Sellar.

Adam Daniels, from FitPro/PTA Global, offered attendees a selection of innovative ideas, using all sorts of equipment from balloons to reaction balls. We also saw a great session on Children’s Fitness from the Fitness Education Academy as well a very Classical Pilates session.

Some very informative theory-based sessions included ‘Move More – Physical Activity and Cancer’ from Macmillan Cancer Support (in association with Canrehab and The Wright Foundation).

Lifetime Health and Fitness gave us their expertise with Eat Smart, Train Hard: Nutrition for Optimum Recovery, while YFIT gave a highly topical overview of ‘Working with Disabled Clients’.

Big thanks to Lagoon Leisure for providing such a great venue and Scotland… we can’t wait to come back next year!

And here’s some more feedback from Rebecca, another member of the REPs team:

It was great to meet so many members, new and prospective, at our convention in Glasgow yesterday!  As fitness professionals, we should all be continually striving to learn and maintain our curiosity – this is what keeps us at the top of our game.

After 21 years in this brilliant industry it is a joy to still be able to access new information and ideas at conventions like this.

Thanks to the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley for their outstanding hospitality – great venue!
