Where did your interest in nutrition and fitness come from?
I have been involved in the fitness and nutrition industry for the last few years. I have worked directly with clients helping them transform their physique through proper nutrition and as a fitness/sports model. I am constantly looking to increase my knowledge and attain more certifications that I believe will increase my knowledge base so I can offer the best advice to my clients. I have always been interested in sport, fitness and healthy living so it seemed natural that I would try and forge a career doing something I love.
Why the Future Fit School of Nutrition?
I was attracted to the Nutrition Diploma from Future Fit Training as I had heard many positive reviews about the company and the course looked appealing. I believed it would be a welcome addition to my qualification portfolio. I felt that the training course with Future Fit was not too difficult yet it was presented in an engaging way and the tutor support was always there if I needed it. I would encourage current students to always look to increase their knowledge, read around the topic and always strive to know more. Don’t just do the bare minimum, look to exceed expectations.
My current role
On a personal level, I use evidence-based nutrition to improve, support and maintain my own physique as I also work as a fitness model in addition to my role as a nutrition consultant. I very much believe in the 'practice what you preach' mentality, so I feel that if I have a healthy, athletic physique then clients who I work with know that I can actually walk the walk rather than just talk the talk. After all, would you want to take financial advice from a bankrupt accountant?
I love my job. I enjoy meeting with new clients and I am always excited when I am presented with an opportunity to help clients achieve their goals. The sense of satisfaction is unrivalled when you hear of clients' successes. The fitness industry is superb fun to work in as it is great to work with like-minded individuals who are often so passionate about what they do. I think the sense of enthusiasm is hard to find in many other industries.
At the moment I am currently involved in a wide range of fitness and nutrition projects and there are several exciting things on the horizon. I am still young and I am very eager to continue learning and to process within the industry.
