The President’s Voice
“This month we were excited to announce the appointment of Angelo Desidera who will join Gabriel Saéz and Herman Rutgers as a EuropeActive Ambassador to represent and help promote EuropeActive’s sectoral vision.
As part of our mission to share knowledge and expertise from our President’s Councils, we have also started our insightful Wednesday Webinars featuring some of the most prominent leaders and organisations in the European ecosystem and participated for the first time ever in the brand-new WHO’s Webinar Series reINVENT & reBUILD.
Furthermore, we officially launched our #BEACTIVE DAY campaign to celebrate the fun and importance of physical activity so I encourage everyone to join us for #BEACTIVE DAY and make September 23rd the most active day of the year.”

Club Operator Member in the spotlight – SATSSATS’ vision is to make people healthier and happier. This is achieved through a wide range of products and services designed to improve public health. During a normal year, SATS facilitate around 40 million workouts in clubs. The effect of all these workouts is 8,000 quality adjusted life-years (QALYs), meaning that members put in a great effort to live better for a longer time.
Supplier Member in the spotlight – MyzoneAs we begin to open facilities around the world, think about how our industry has been dormant at the time when health services have needed us most. That can’t happen again. The global banner of physical activity has never had more attention than in the past year. More people are moving; now it’s our job to make sure they stay on the move with encouragement and support.

EREPS Member and Employer Surveys – ResultsThe results from the latest EREPS member and employer surveys are indicative of the turmoil Covid-19 has created over the last 18 months. Fitness professionals and clubs have been negatively impacted individually and collectively. However, despite these tough times both groups are planning for the future and the opportunities that it will bring.
