Our Students - Justin O'Halloran

I have had an interest in fitness from a young age and it's fair to say that it has always been a big part of my life. It was some time ago now but my career in the fitness industry started when I studied sports and exercise science and gained all the necessary fitness related qualifications that I needed at the time. I then looked for a way to work in the fitness industry and, as I had a keen interest in sports nutrition, ended up working in sales for a sports nutrition company and then moved on to sell health and fitness equipment. I built up my own company selling fitness equipment and then, off the back of its success, opened up a studio focusing on the use of power plates and kettlebell training. This allowed me to gain a wealth of experience working as a personal trainer, especially with regard to group training, which is something we specialise in at the studio.

Angela
Angela's Story - The Great Outdoors

Several years ago I was stuck in a vicious circle, I was fed-up and bored with my lifestyle, I didn't feel happy within myself and I piled on the weight. I would feel miserable about the way I looked and so would eat, either through boredom or to make me feel better. I tried all sorts of diets and yo-yoed between them and, although I would lose a bit of weight fast, it would go back on quickly and I would add even more. Finally I had decided enough was enough, I wasn't going to go up yet another dress size and was certainly not going to do another painful diet, and so it was time for a lifestyle change.

Joe's Story - Worldwide Opportunities in Personal Training

I was unfortunately made redundant from pilot training in the Royal Air Force and, as I had always been involved in fitness in one form or another (and loved it), a career in fitness seemed like a logical progression. The Training Room had been recommended to me by the RAF PTI's and the 6 week intensive course would get me all the qualifications to get out there and start work as soon as possible!
