As an older person who has never stopped keeping fit and going to the gym, I am passionate about the health benefits of exercise and want to encourage people my age to keep active as long as possible. The decision to take the course was a big one for me, particularly in what can be perceived as a younger persons industry, also it had been a long time since I sat a formal examination. In the end Diverse made it easy for me because of the support and encouragement you get from the all the trainers
