Former Wasp’s rugby captain, John Hart, is one of the PRP’s latest recruits and will begin his Active IQ Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training with The Training Room in June. Following his retirement from rugby, Hart has worked as a secondary school P.E teacher and now as an events manager for the family business but misses the bright lights of professional sport. He hopes this qualification will be the catalyst for his return, albeit in a new role.
“When my playing career came to an end, I struggled to come to terms with the change,” John began. “Although I’ve enjoyed my other roles since then, sport has always been my passion, so having the opportunity to train as a PT through the PRP could enable me to eventually get back into the sporting environment. If it leads to me training elite sportspeople that would be amazing, but I’m open-minded. Whether a person simply wants to get fitter and healthier or has an invested interest in sport, I’m looking forward to supporting those people to achieve their goals and improve their lives."
