Managing Gym users with suspected health problems: Eating disorders

Deverell Smith

As Business Development Manager at IMSPA (Institute for the Management of Sports and Physical Activity), part of my role became advising Club Managers and Facility Operators on best practice according to guidance already published.  One of the most prevalent inquiries related to ‘How to manage people coming into their facilities with eating disorders?’, and me not really having any answers.  As a result and through consultation with colleagues in the industry I decided to form a stakeholder group to bring all their knowledge together so that we could issue some meaningful guidance to the industry.

The stakeholders consisted of the FIA (now UK Active), REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals), ABC (an eating disorder charity) and a number of key operators and legal experts.

This information was published by the FIA, IMSPA (Now CIMSPA) and REPS in April 2010 and is in the public domain and therefore not subject to copyright restrictions.
