CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) has issued guidance on a lot of the questions Personal Trainers and Fitness Professionals had regarding training outdoors over the Lockdown period.⁣

This should help to clear up a few things for fitness professionals unsure if we can continue to train people outdoors.⁣

- 1:1 personal training can take place with someone from another household in an outdoor public space, while observing the existing risk assessment, social distancing and hygiene guidance.⁣

- A trainer cannot work with more than one person at a time, even if they are from the same household.⁣

- Children under 5, as well as disabled people dependent on round-the-clock care are not counted towards the limit on two people meeting outside.⁣

- A trainer can work with multiple clients in the same day, as long as there is no overlap between sessions.⁣

- You should work locally wherever possible, but you are free to travel if necessary.⁣

- There is no limit on the amount of time someone can spend exercising outdoors, or the number of times per day they choose to exercise.⁣

- Outdoor public places that can continue to stay open include: parks, beaches, the countryside, public gardens and grounds, and outdoor playgrounds.⁣

- Outdoor basketball, tennis courts, outdoor gyms and skateparks are required to close.⁣
