From the age of 16, I have participated in various sports such as boxing, football and badminton, from then on I started to take training seriously as a career. I have always had a passion for physical fitness, I then decided I wanted to turn my passion into my career and become a professional trainer. I went to university to further myself in this industry and gained a degree in health and sport development.
Kickstarting A Career In Fitness Industry With Help From Diverse Trainers
After I picked up my degree I took the next step to achieve my goals by getting my Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification with Diverse Trainers. From this I hope to achieve my ultimate goal and gain my Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification. I thought the gym instructor course on offer was very good; the structure was in place to make the learning as smooth as possible. The materials supplied by Diverse Trainers was given to me in plenty of time before my various assessments, so I had enough time to learn all the relevant knowledge needed for my exams, portfolio and practical assessments. I had a very good understanding of training and fitness, but this course opened me up to new information and different techniques of training, which helped improve my knowledge greatly. The level 2 gym instructor course is very reasonably priced; when looking around other companies I found them to be a bit overpriced and they didn’t explain their course very well. Diverse Trainers were upfront about what the course entailed - I received a phone call the next day after I registered my interest and the trainer was very helpful when breaking down the price and details of the course to me. Everyone I was in contact with was very professional and supportive of my aspirations. I was given support throughout, from helping me with my portfolio, detailed breakdowns of my assessments, which was all done in a friendly and caring manner. I felt no pressure from the tutors; they made me feel very relaxed even when I was a little nervous near the start. The tutor on the course was very knowledgeable; he presented a breakdown of each day of my assessments, which was great for helping me understand what was required. His experience in the industry was exceptional; I would constantly ask him questions about training and he wouldn’t hesitate to give me a very detailed answer, which I felt very reassured about when he was assessing my practical sessions. All in all, he passed me a lot of information that I have taken on board for the future, which I hope to take into my career in the industry.
