The Gym Group has achieved two significant industry certifications for its operations.

The low-cost chain is the first UK-based 24/7 fitness operator to achieve the Fitcert level 3 certification.

The Fitcert scheme, led by EuropeActive and the Royal Netherlands Standardization Institute (NEN), is regarded as the first sector-certification programme for health and fitness operators in Europe.

The Gym Group is also the first UK-based fitness operator to achieve the ISO 45001:2018 certification for health and safety management systems.

Issued by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), the certification specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system, enabling organisations to provide safe and healthy workplaces by preventing work-related injury and ill health.

Following an audit covering both central and gym-level operations, the group's 230+ gyms will now be covered by the certification.

Joey Franco, The Gym Group's head of health and safety, said: “Providing safe spaces has always been our priority, and with these externally audited certifications, we can demonstrate to our members and our teams how seriously we take the health and safety of our gyms and the quality of our operations.

"For ISO 45001:2018, we received positive feedback on the understanding, knowledge and diligence of our teams to support the healthy operation of our sites, with the audit team returning no non-conformances.

"It is this relentless attention to detail from across the organisation that has led to this achievement.”
