CMS Fitness Courses Aiding the Return of The Active Leisure Sector to Pre-COVID Levels in Partnership With CIMSPA

By: Magic PR

Many industries felt the rath of the covid-19 pandemic, but for the active leisure sector and it’s talented employee-base, it was devastating. Across the country, sport and recreation and health and fitness professionals were forced to move sectors in order to secure financial stability, as active leisure facilities and services closed their doors to the public.

Now, as the world continues to reopen it’s doors, government bodies, chartered institutes and dedicated industry training and qualification providers are aiding the return of the active leisure sector to pre-covid levels, reigniting the industry with recruitable talent.

One such training and qualification provider who are playing a key role in this agenda are CMS Fitness Courses. For over 14 years, they’ve provided high quality internationally recongised fitness and personal trainer courses. Today, they are delighted to announce that they, alongside their government apprenticeship and advanced learner loan contracts, have partnered with CIMSPA on the ReTrain to Retain scheme.

ReTrain to Retain will support 50,000 sport and physical activity professionals and volunteers who’ve had to find work outside the sector or had their hours reduced during the covid-19 pandemic through funded programs and a wealth of free resources.

Below, we outline the programs and resources that CMS Fitness Courses are providing in partnership with the CIMSPA ReTrain to Retain scheme:
