    In addition to requiring the knowledge, skills and competences to deliver diverse exercise that covers different target groups, fitness professionals should also be role models in a variety of areas. Alongside all the relevant elements like training, nutrition or communication, they should also represent and adopt an anti-doping and socially responsible attitude. The European Register of Exercise Professionals (EREPS) Code of Ethical Practice already states that an objective for exercise professionals should be to never advocate or condone the use of prohibited drugs or other banned performance enhancing substances.

    The European fitness sectors encourage and promote a healthy way of living, which includes physical, mental, and nutritional components. When it comes to a balanced nutrition, supplements can deliver a supporting contribution to achieve fitness and health goals. Exercise professionals must be informed about the difference between useful nutritional supplements and prohibited performance enhancing doping substances. It is essential to know the threshold of moving from a healthy approach over to hazardous attitude where by doping substances can have a negative impact.

    The EHFA Standards Council have developed a set of educational standards for anti-doping, which come together to form the learning objectives and assessment criteria of the Careers in Fitness EHFA Level 3 Anti-Doping Specialist Course. Consequently, the course provides the knowledge and skills to be able to identify the signs of doping practice and educate individuals on the negative impact of doping and on proper nutritional plans that are free from doping practices.
