There is the unique opportunity for fitness trainers to run classes in the beautiful surroundings of the famous Royal Parks. Having a vision of where you would like to train is important, however it is necessary for fitness professionals to understand the current licensing laws that may affect your business.
The Royal Parks have recently introduced Fitness Training Licences for the use of their green spaces. Places affected include Hyde Park, Richmond Park, Regent’s Park, Greenwich Park, Bushy Park and Green Park. This means that if you would like to use these places for personal training or to run group fitness sections, you must apply for a license. The Royal Parks encourages the highest quality from their fitness professionals. To be a licence holder you will need REPs level 3 or equivalent. Your business will then be promoted on their website and social media channels.
The table below gives you the charges for the daily, weekly and yearly rates.
The website already displays the groups and individuals who are currently in possession of a licence. These include various boot camps; from military style to 1000 calorie boot camps, classes for mums; mums in shape, buggy boot camp and Buggy Runner, Kiddikicks Sport and running classes.
