Graduate Story, Personal Training

Many of us want to change our careers but such a huge step can be scary. One person who took the leap and wanted to share her story was Sarah Jordan.

Sarah had always been passionate about fitness, training and living a healthy lifestyle, though found herself pursuing a career in nursing and care. She worked in the healthcare sector for seven years, and to begin with, she loved it, but after a while the appeal wore off, and she felt her career going stale – Sarah knew at that point that’s she was ready to follow her love for health and fitness; she dreamt of a fresh start doing something she was passionate about.
