Personal Training Success Stories: Kurt

Kurt - Personal Training


What made you decide on a PT course with The Training Room?

I’ve always been interested in becoming a personal trainer, so I thought I’d finally take the opportunity and do it. I chose The Training Room because of the fast-track option along with their career support as I wanted to be qualified as quickly as possible. I wanted to work in the fitness industry as soon as possible so this was the best option for me.

I’ve previously been a PE teacher and I’ve always enjoyed coaching and fitness so becoming a personal trainer was the next step for my career.

What were you doing before you started your PT course?

I worked behind a bar for a while and then spent some working as a PE teacher. I knew this wasn’t a long-term option for me and have been ready to start my career in fitness instructing and personal training.

What did you enjoy most about the course?

The course was great! My tutor made everything enjoyable and I couldn’t fault him one bit. I really enjoyed the team atmosphere and getting to train and learn with other people. It made the learning experience so much easier.

What are you doing now you've finished the course?

I’m about to start a job at énergie Fitness, where I am going to work as a self-employed personal trainer. It gives me a great opportunity to build up my client base and launch my new career; I can’t wait to start training my first clients!

What was your experience of The Training Room's career support?

The career support was great, as soon as I was contacted by the team they helped me work on my CV to get it ready for applications. The evening I completed my CV I was sent job opportunities for gyms in my area. I secured interviews with those gyms set up almost instantly too! It was such a quick and thorough experience.

I interviewed with énergie Fitness and was offered the job straight away!

From your experience, what advice would you give to anyone thinking about becoming a Personal Trainer?

If you are thinking of becoming a personal trainer and love fitness - just go for it! I would happily recommend The Training Room as a great place to start your personal training journey.

My advice for someone who is about to start a course is work hard whilst studying; the more effort you put in to studying throughout the course, the easier you will find it…and the dreaded anatomy exam won’t seem that bad!!
