Why WABBA Doesn't Recognise REPS
WABBA Qualifications are driven by our company motto In Pursuit of Excellence. Our aim is to offer you our students an excellent support and back-up service. REPS - Its concept: Fundamentally the idea of Fitness Instructors, Personal Trainers and Strength Coaches being regulated to raise standards is a good one. Unfortunately the industry has become flooded with so called “Recognised Qualifications” coming from training providers with very little – if any real gym experience, but they have filled out the necessary paperwork and now “meet industry guidelines” to deliver training courses! This ludicrous situation happened when some training providers got together with certain club operators and created a cartel, whereby you can’t get a job in their clubs unless you hold a certain training providers “Recognised Qualification”. Next these operators and trainers set up a “Register” which you must be on to get a job in one of the said health clubs, making a virtually unbreakable triangle between Club, Training Providers “Recognised” Qualifications, and a Register to “raise professional standards”. Then not content with that, the ‘’register of these recognised qualifications’’ began to insist upon all fitness trainers undergoing extra training each year with the ‘’recognised training providers’’ so that they could ‘’stay recognised’’ on the ‘’register’’! Hiding under the umbrella of Continual Professional Development Reps insist that if you don’t spend hundreds of pounds a year on their ‘’recognised courses’’ to gain enough points to stay on their register, you won’t be ‘’recognised anymore’’!!! Needless to say, this system has flopped overseas, and there is a growing rebellion from members of the fitness industry here in the UK, who now refuse to renew their ‘’recognition’’ each year by handing over a fortune for ridiculous attendance courses where they listen to drivel for 4 hours to gain Reps Points towards recognition. REPS - It’s History: WARNING - MOST PEOPLE DONT KNOW THIS!!!! Previously it was called Exercise England (version 1 of Reps) and was formed with our full support as a founding member! We actively encouraged our members to join as there were no cons about having to pay hundreds of pounds every year to remain on its listings, just lots of pro’s, actively encouraging good industry standards. It closed down. Then after a few years along came; The UK Exercise Register (version 2 of Reps) which was based in Angel Gate, East London. WABBA was asked if we would support this second version of the system, ‘’as a lot had been done since the first version’’ to make it a more successful and effective organisation. WABBA again agreed to support this organisation and actively encouraged our members to join it, based upon its ideals and principles. The UK Exercise Register closed down over a bank holiday weekend without warning due to financial problems when their government funding was withdrawn, even though they were headed by an American with a PhD in Business Administration! When people rang their offices, the phones had been disconnected, and the offices had been emptied of all furniture, so we knew they had gone out of business taking everyones money AGAIN. WABBA were on both of these previous registers and supported them with many of our members joining on our recommendation but lost their membership money when the organisations closed down without warning. Years after, this latest version of the same old scheme came into being. Guess what? This time WABBA were never included or invited to initial development talks for this third time around re-incarnation. WABBA were “politically excluded” from this version of REPS because we complained and made a fuss about previous versions taking people’s money and not honouring their membership commitments. We asked for assurances from Reps about our member’s money being safe, and from then on the telephone went silent. To combat this unfair treatment WABBA became a City & Guilds NVQ & VRQ Approved Centre, so our students could automatically go onto REPS. However, as more fitness trainers refuse to keep paying ‘qualification update fees’ every year and leave the register, WABBA no longer receive many enquiries for Reps inclusion. REPS - Its importance: Daily complaints across the industry from knowledgeable PT’s and training providers, tired of seeing so-called “Recognised” personal trainers with virtually No Exercise Knowledge say any true credibility and Importance REPS had was lost long ago. Established professional trainers begrudgingly do what’s required to be on REPS so that they can work in the large fitness club chains and local authority centres, but give little value to its importance and see it as a way to get more money in fees every year from personal trainers wanting to stay “recognised” to earn a living. Many PT’s think you have to belong to REPS otherwise you can’t get insured, which is both misleading and inaccurate. WABBA – The World Governing Body with Global Recognition WABBA was started in 1975 by legendary 5x World Champion Serge Nubret, with WABBA's 'Qualifications Division' Founder being Award Winning, Multi-Published Author, and former GB Olympic Weight Lifting & Senior National Powerlifting Coach, Alan Runacres. WABBA has over 40 years UK & World-Wide training experience, and is the longest established UK based fitness trainer organisation, here way before anyone else even started and now represented in over 100 countries.
