Ross has always been a really active person and was a keen footballer prior to joining the forces. Having served in the Army for twelve years, he was on Operations with a Commando Engineer Regiment in Afghanistan in 2008 when he was injured in an explosion. His leg and knee were shattered and since then he has undergone over 20 operations. Ross then had to make to very difficult decision, due to the severity of his injuries, to have his leg amputated above the knee.
Ross has spent two and a half years in rehabilitation at Headley Court. During this time there was a talent identification day where he got to try out a number of Paralympic sports. Following on from this he got involved in both swimming and athletics which allowed him to regain the active lifestyle he had always known. He then had the opportunity to do a triathlon, raising a million dollars for military charities, a huge achievement. He loved doing the triathlon, realised that this was the sport for him and hasn’t looked back since.
Ross went to trials at Loughborough University for the GB triathlon squad last year and got in. This is a new sport for the Paralympics so, although there will be a showcase this year, he won’t compete until 2016. This gives him time to throw himself into training and get to where he needs to be.
Ross has a clear plan for what he would like to do with his future. After finishing The Training Room personal training course he wants to do level 4 courses in GP referral, advanced nutrition and strength and conditioning. “In the New Year I plan to train and compete full time, the Training Room qualification is great because it means I can fit my clients around my training,” said Ross. After he has competed in the 2016 Paralympics he would like to move in to coaching and we’re sure this is something he will excel at and that he’ll be a true inspiration to everyone that he works with.
Really happy that I found the Training Room and now that I have signed up through the help and support from Laura, on the back of the first time we spoke about the course and the company. I knew that it was the right choice for me through instinct. Really looking forward to studying the course and working with my tutor Liz who also made my introduction onto the course so smooth so far. Results, results, results. Lets chase them step by step.
Great to be onboard, lets see how the journey goes.
Ria helped answer all my questions, and offered to put them in writing as there was a lot of info. Not pushy with the sale and allowed me to talk with my partner and didn't push for an answer there and then, so organised a call back the next day. Everything has run smoothly and I can't wait to begin to the course!
The experience was really easy, and everyone has been very helpful.

Amazing support at hand when ever you need it only just started on the course but I’m feeling very happy and confident about achieving my goals
It's a very organised service. The support from all departments is excellent. People not working for you but with you. Highly recommended.

Adam was very informative of the whole course and answered by queries very comprehensively. Above all he was not pushy about the course.
Training room service is efficient and the people at the other end of the phone helpful and friendly. All the information is thoroughly explained with clarity giving complete confidence. They are easily contactable through email and will return calls when asked too.
From the serviced I've received so far I am inclined to continue my own development with them and sign onto my level 4 after I I pass my level 2 and 3
Exceptional customer service. After being behind both Amanda and Luke took time out of their days to make sure that I was on top of things and and knew what I was doing. I was super grateful of and they really went above and beyond to make sure everything was sorted.
The service so far as been super amazing. Luis and Shawn provided me with all the information I needed to start my course. I am really excited about it. My tutor Claire has already reached out to me and said she is there for me. The service is just wonderful.
