At The Training Room, we’re proud of our students.
Here’s what some of our students and graduates have to say about their experience.
TJ is 21 and it will be 6 years this April since he lost his leg in a horrific fairground accident. After his accident, TJ was introduced to wheelchair basketball and found he had a natural flair for the game. TJ has always had a passion for sport and fitness and is training to become a Personal Trainer so that he can help other people with disabilities.
Joe was unfortunately made redundant from pilot training in the Royal Air Force and, as he'd always been involved in fitness, becoming a Personal Trainer seemed like a logical progression. On completing the course he was offered a job working for Fitness First in Saudi Arabia! Working abroad has allowed Joe to start learning a new language, experience a new culture and, at the same time, he's getting vast amounts of fitness and life experience.
Sam Tucknott, 24, turned to The Training Room after his plans to play football professionally didn’t work out. Sam started his football career at the age of 12 when he joined Crystal Palace academy. He was there for five years before moving to Wycombe Wanderers for two years. But at the age of 19, as so often happens, Sam’s contract wasn’t renewed and he had to face the fact his professional career was over.
Dean is one of our graduates from the class of 2008. He was offered a job working as a Personal Trainer just 14 days after finishing the course and his career has gone from strength to strength ever since. Dean is now working as a National Development Manager for the GB Taekwondo team!
