Patricia's Story

" I'm a late-onset rower with a burning passion for a sport that doesn't always love me back! I started exercising really from scratch in my early 40s, with the help of a personal trainer, and fitness has become a massive part of my life since then. I have a particular passion for encouraging older people to get fit and firmly believe that it's never too late to get active."

"There are several reasons why I chose to study with Future Fit. What first drew me in was how thorough their training was, and I loved the fact that for the Level 2 qualification there was an in-person element to the training - it wasn't just done online. I felt that this was a really important element of the qualification. I've also been really impressed by the level of support before, during and after the training - there's always a tutor ready to answer questions, and to make sure you're learning to be a safe and effective trainer yourself. Having done my Level 2 I've come back for more and didn't hesitate to choose Future Fit again! "

A Q&A with Patricia Carswell

What made you want to get into the health and fitness industry?

When I started getting fit in my early 40s, I couldn't have done it without the help and encouragement of a personal trainer, and it made me want to give the same support to other people. I've become a total convert to fitness and want to share the benefits with other people!

What is your top piece of advice for anyone wanting to change their career and join the industry?

Talk to other people already in the industry. I've been really impressed by how willing people are to share advice and tips and help you avoid any pitfalls.

What's your favourite meal?

Such a difficult question! Probably some lovely fresh fish with roasted vegetables (and chips, let's be honest) followed by something chocolatey, eaten with good friends in the sunshine!

What TV or film character do you relate to the most?

Miranda from Sex and the City! Red-haired, fiery, loves a cocktail, has a fantastic bunch of girlfriends and a great stock of one-liners.

What's your favourite kind of workout?

I love a rowing studio-style workout, mixing up bursts on the rowing machine with circuits-style intervals.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

Endless energy and the ability to create extra hours in the day!

Why did you choose Future Fit Training?

There are several reasons why I chose to study with Future Fit. What first drew me in was how thorough their training was, and I loved the fact that for the Level 2 qualification there was an in-person element to the training - it wasn't just done online. I felt that this was a really important element of the qualification. I've also been really impressed by the level of support before, during and after the training - there's always a tutor ready to answer questions, and to make sure you're learning to be a safe and effective trainer yourself. Having done my Level 2 I've come back for more and didn't hesitate to choose Future Fit again!

Were you nervous to start your training course?

I was a little bit daunted by the amount of material to learn, but found it all so interesting it was all fine!

How do you think fitness has changed your life?

It has changed everything! Becoming fit has given me more energy, made me feel strong and confident about my body, seen me through cancer and given me life-long friends.
