Consultation kicks off to develop guidelines for delivering exercise online

With delivering physical activity online now part of the 'new normal', our sector must engage with what this means and act professionally to reflect this
– Tara Dillon, CEO, CIMSPA

CIMSPA, has opened a consultation on the safe delivery of sport and physical activity online, to engage the industry in fine-tuning its new policy and supporting guidance in this area.

The institute says 50 per cent of fitness businesses have moved their products and services online and this has driven the need for clear professional guidance to "ensure both the workforce and participants can engage online in a safe way."

Tara Dillon, CEO of CIMSPA, said: "With delivering physical activity online now part of the new normal, our sector must engage with what this means and act professionally to reflect this.

"Our new policy and its supporting guidance have been developed within our remit as the chartered professional body and lead workforce agency for the UK sport and physical activity sector, to enable this transition."

The policy is supported by Sport England and has been developed in partnership with EMD UK, UK Coaching, ukactive and Active Partnerships.
