About This Report:

An independent assessment of the risk of transmission of COVID-19 in fitness clubs and leisure facilities across Europe:

We are very pleased to present the findings of this independent evaluation of COVID-19 transmission risk in European fitness clubs and leisure facilities initiated by EuropeActive and THINK Active. The evaluation assesses data from mainland Europe (collected as part of the SafeACTiVE study) and UK data (collected by the ukactive Research Institute). This final SafeACTiVE report is the collective accomplishment of EuropeActive's academic partners, European national fitness associations, club operators, and six industry sponsors; Exerp, ExorLive, Life Fitness, Matrix, Myzone and Technogym. We would like to acknowledge Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Sheffield Hallam University, Professors Alfonso Jimenez and Robert Copeland and their teams for undertaking the SafeACTiVE research for mainland Europe, and ukactive Research Institute for their generous contribution and assessment of the report's UK data.
