Their Fitness Insurance and Fitness and Sports Massage Cover includes public liability (£10 million), personal accident cover and covers for online and virtual training.


In February 2020 it was announced that CIMSPA and UK Coaching had reached an agreement to combine the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) with the CIMSPA Exercise and Fitness Directory, creating a single directory for all exercise and fitness professionals, which will be hosted and managed by CIMSPA. REPS therefore no longer exists.
