Sports has always been a huge part of Christopher’s life. As an active gym goer, he already had some first-hand knowledge of personal training and the importance of health and fitness, so when the opportunity came up to do a course and become a qualified personal trainer himself, Chris jumped at the chance!
Chris said: “I wasn’t in full-time work, I was just doing odd jobs here and there but hadn’t found anything I was passionate about or any work that I enjoyed, so when I came across the course I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get started on a new career that I actually had an interest in.”
Chris decided to use his time wisely and opted to study using our fast-track personal trainer course. Speaking about his experience on the course, Chris said: “To be honest, I loved everything about it! From start to finish it was fantastic, my tutor was great and made sure we all had the important information. My favourite part of the course however was the anatomy and nutrition units as I loved the science behind it, I found it very interesting!” He continues “fitting the course around my personal life was really easy too as we were only needed in the classroom for 2 days a week over the 5-weeks of the course, and the online learning platform is really easy to use, so you can do a lot of your learning in your own time at home. I was initially a little anxious about having to learn so much in such a short period of time, but with the tutors and the online learning platform it turns out there was nothing to worry about!”
After graduating the course, Chris made full use of the career support all of our students receive and updated his CV with their help, which ended up getting him a job straight away in his new industry! We checked in with him to see how he’s been getting on. Chris said: “I’m working at Oakley Fitness, I am primarily a receptionist as I want to gain some experience and build my brand before I become a personal trainer, but I also run classes, do gym inductions and help out elsewhere in the gym. I have a few CPD courses lined up with The Training Room to allow me to run more classes. It’s a great atmosphere at the gym I love working there! It’s like a little family!”
We wish Chris the best of luck in his new career in health and fitness, and we’re glad he finally found work in an industry he is really passionate about.
