For boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) REPs registration is required as follows:
Non-combative boxing sessions
Registered Exercise Professionals delivering sessions in boxing, kickboxing or mixed martial arts (MMA) must be registered at the level of exercise consultant level 2, or personal trainer, or in the case of group exercise boxing classes at the registration level of group exercise.
It’s important to note that boxing, kickboxing and MMA activities are run as non-combative sessions, do not involve body contact and are conducted with correct technique.
All other boxing instruction and sessions
If an individual is providing boxing instruction which is combative, then this is outside the scope of REPs registration. There are relevant organisations in New Zealand which provide education and membership for combative boxing and this would include Boxing New Zealand Inc.
