The Professional Practice Guidance on Gym Acoustics (ProPG) is part of a series of guidance documents addressed to acoustic professionals, building developers and Local Authorities. It introduces guidance on a recommended approach for the standardised methodology for assessing buildings used as Gymnasiums, fitness and exercise spaces and their environment.

The guidance is based largely on the experience and current state of knowledge of the Working Group in which RMP were represented by Acoustic Consultant David Chapman.  RMP has undertaken the noise and vibrations design of over 100 gym and sports facilities throughout the UK including the major national Gym operators.

The UK Gym Noise Guidance ProPG2 launched on 29th March 2023 and is available through the ANC, IOA and CIEH websites.
