Thinking about a career change? Get inspired by Andy's Success Story and move into work you love.
Where did your initial interest in nutrition come from?
I had been working in IT for a number of years and gained an Open University degree in engineering. But I was really looking for a less stressful job with the personal fulfilment that comes from helping others. My only real foray into the ‘fitness world’ was a brief venture into karate 15 years ago. My main interest in the fitness industry had only been stimulated shortly before undertaking the courses.
I needed some initial reassurance from a training provider that this was the right move for me personally and professionally, as I had a well-paid job and was successful in IT. I also needed to consider the fact I have a mortgage and a family to provide for.
Why Future Fit?
I came across Future Fit Training and right from the very first phone call they starting giving me the right knowledge and the confidence that I needed to go on to become a successful fitness instructor. A job I really enjoy! Future Fit Training’s careers advisers took the time to explain about all the different packages and courses that are available. They also helped me by providing me with a choice of payment methods, making the transition as painless as possible. The constant support during the course also helped alleviate all my initial fears and problems.
I took the Nutrition Specialist Diploma and these courses were really well structured, researched and offered industry references and knowledge to back up the theory. The Nutrition and Weight Management module highlighted this brilliantly with current peer reviewed references, which gave me a thoroughly beneficial course for myself and potential clients.
I would strongly recommend Future Fit Training, as they are the experts in the fitness industry and have the best training to suit students’ current and future needs. Their tutors are all experts in their own fields and their support team is always available to offer assistance.
The vast majority of courses are awarded with REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) points, which is important for me to have the piece of mind that my new found knowledge is backed up by the industry preferred qualifications!
Future Fit helped me to fit my training around my work. This smoothed the path between careers, as I was able to start the nutrition and fitness aspects as a side venture building up my client base. The competitive cost and easy payment methods meant that it was good value for money and has unlocked many doors for myself in an exciting new career field.
I hope to take some more Future Fit Training courses like the Personal Trainer and GP Referral courses.
I would recommend the experience thoroughly, and I wouldn’t go back to my old job for double the money!
