Outdoor fitness instructors

Register as an outdoor fitness instructor

Outdoor fitness instructors who charge for their service and  use Edinburgh's parks and greenspaces must agree to a code of conduct and register their details with the Council.  

By agreeing to the code, outdoor fitness trainers can reduce their impact on the parks and other parks users, set a good example to other trainers and deliver a safe and quality service for their customers.

How to register

Fill in the online form below to register as an outdoor fitness instructor.

Once your form has been received, you will be sent a copy of the code of conduct and a permission card. This card is proof you have permission and should be carried whenever you use a Council park.

Be aware of the following

  • give due consideration to other park users by keeping to the quiet corners of parks and leaving room, especially on paths
  • keep noise levels to a minimum, particularly early in the mornings 
  • avoid using children's play equipment. 
  • make yourself familiar with the UK Active Outdoor Code of Practice.
