I have always had an interest in keeping active and healthy and come from a family who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as hockey, cycling, hill walking and skiing.
In my late 20`s I piled on some weight and found it difficult to lose this on my own so I had a PT who helped me achieve my goals. This was a turning point for me as I understood more about nutrition and health which led me to take control of my lifestyle habits.
A few months back I was laid off from work and was finding it difficult to make ends meet and doing jobs that weren't giving me personal satisfaction. It was by chance that I happened to come across The Training Room website. I really liked what I saw and decided to take the plunge and go for it.
I'd never seriously been exposed to the gym environment before so everything I learnt on the course was totally new to me. I didn't fully appreciate how tough it was going to be until I started but I had support and encouragement from the tutors, Chris Hole and Kirsty Skinner. Nothing was ever too much to ask of them which was great. I learned so much as the teaching was fun, inspiring and interactive too.
Since finishing my PT course over six weeks ago, I've been employed by Fitness First and am looking forward to my journey with them.
In the future I hope to run bootcamps in Spain as I am a native Spanish speaker. I also hope to run classes and charitable events for children in my area to help promote the importance of healthy living and of course to expand my knowledge with CPD courses.
