Personal Training Success Stories: Simon

Simon - Personal Training


Why did you take a Personal Training course?

Over the last few years I have really got into fitness and training - it started as a hobby while studying Construction Management at Reading University, but it developed into a passion. Shortly after graduating I travelled around the US and continued to train and developed my passion for fitness even further.

When I returned from my travels I realised I wanted to make a career out of fitness and that’s why I took a Personal Training course with The Training Room.

How were your tutors on the course?

Nick was excellent; whenever we were in workshops he was willing to answer any question and always made sure we had the knowledge to pass our exams and succeed in our new careers. Considering the course went so quickly, it is impressive how much he taught without making it seem rushed at all.

What did you enjoy about the course?

Most of the course was great but the parts that stand out were the Level 3 Practical modules and nutrition. I already had a small grasp of the knowledge surrounding nutrition from training before the course – getting to expand on that existing knowledge was really interesting.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about becoming a Personal Trainer?

Firstly, I would say it’s imperative you get qualified. You will need to be at least Level 3 qualified (this is the benchmark if you want to offer personal training); I would definitely recommend The Training Room to anyone who’s looking to get into a fitness career.

On my course I also learnt that first impressions are key. If you’re looking fit and healthy, your clients are more likely to believe in what you’re doing. How can you trust a personal trainer if they look overweight? If you can’t get it to work for yourself, how would you expect your clients to believe it would work for them?
