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.

My First Year as a Personal Trainer

There’s no doubt about it starting a new career can be a daunting prospect. And as much as we’d like to get off to the perfect start, alongside the highs, there are bound to be a few bumps in the road.

But as someone once said, “Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.” With that in mind, we asked Amanda Atkinson, Health & Fitness Tutor at the Training Room with over 15 years’ experience in the fitness industry, to take a trip down memory lane and tell us what went well (and not so well) in her first year of being a personal trainer! We hope this will give you some valuable tips on how to succeed and a heads up on the hurdles to avoid!…
