"When I started to notice the benefits of eating correctly and good exercise I realised that I wanted to share my experience"
I have always had a keen interest in health and fitness ever since I was little but it was not until I reached twenty-five that my passion for nutrition really grew. I spent a lot of my time working in pubs drinking, smoking and not being consistent in looking after myself and it started to show both physically and mentally, so I decided to make a change. When I started to notice the benefits of eating correctly and good exercise I realised that I wanted to share my experience and get others to understand the potential of what it could do for them.
I chose to study with Future Fit because after doing a great deal of research, it quickly became apparent to me that not only was the Future Fit course content very well structured, but they also had a fantastic support network making learning from home for the first time, less daunting. I was able to easily fit the course around my full-time job, it is very affordable and it has given me all the knowledge I need to progress with in the industry.
I’m still working full-time, but over the last six months I have been setting up my own Nutrition Consultancy Company, which will be launching in 2014.
I still have a few courses left with Future Fit which I am aiming to complete within the next 12 months. I also plan to put all my focus, drive and energy into my new business so that hopefully in the future I will be able to do it full-time.
My top tip for students would be to create a study schedule and stick to it. Never leave anything to the last minute and only study for a few hours at a time so you don't mentally drain yourself and forget everything you have just learned!
