Well we can't believe how quickly January has passed us by but we have certainly done a lot and it looks like it's going to be a great year. We have had both full and part time personal training courses starting at locations across the UK with some inspirational students training with us who have great ideas for the future and are proving to be a pleasure for our tutors to teach. We've also attended our first exhibition of the year, B-Fit, the new lifestyle and fitness event, which allowed us to catch up with clients and industry experts alike.
The sporting year is now well under way in anticipation of the Olympics this summer. Awards for sport made up 4% of the New Year's Honours list, including knighthoods for individual contributions to 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. January also saw the first Winter Youth Olympic Games, held in Innsbruck, Austria. 70 countries participated in world-class sporting competition and cultural and educational activities. With over 110,000 spectators, the games exceeded expectations and established a solid foundation for future Youth Games. We've also seen some great matches at the Australian Open with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia defending his Australian Open title last Sunday, recorded as the longest final in the tournament's 107 year history.
It's been great to see the New Year impetus in full swing and everyone with their goals for the year clear in their minds. The challenge now is for us all to keep the momentum going through the rest of the year. Gyms have been buzzing in January with people resolving to get fit so it's our job to keep things that way. Our advice is to not give up, if you've achieved your initial goals raise the bar and keep going. It's not a case of all or nothing, if you've not achieved all, don't settle for nothing. It's time to re-asses your goals, make sure their manageable and stay motivated.
We've got lots more exciting things planned in February. Keep an eye on our blog and social media pages for advice and tips from our tutors and success stories from our students and graduates. We've got more courses starting across the UK so it's not too late to get involved and start a new career in the fitness industry. We're also going to be attending more events in February so stay tuned for further information and don't forget to come and visit us if you're nearby.
Good luck everyone, stay motivated and let's make this a February to remember.

Excellent service and help provided throughout, thanks a lot! Andy McGlashan (tutor) replied 99% of the time within a couple of hours to any questions and when providing feedback to me, top guy couldn't ask for more
The course was really helpful and it gave me the skills I need to become a Personal Trainer, I have now started work at Pure Gym in Warrington.
All of the admin staff were incredibly helpful and instrumental in my attendance and attainment of the course, and my tutor Tracey Lilburn at the Newcastle school was overwhelming supportive and absolutely the reason for my success.
