Success Story - Geoff Wood
"Explain your answers to another person, this will help you get both answers and questions straight in your own mind, it is also an excellent aid to memory."
I joined the RAF Regiment at 17 and served 28 years. This allowed me to maintain an active life style with fitness becoming part of my daily routine.
Within 2 years of leaving the service I had a full hip replacement. At this time I was working as a civil servant for the MoD with access to the base gym. So as a means of rehabilitation I decided to train as a gym instructor. Future Fit Training was the only company that provided what I wanted within a reasonable travelling distance; however the advantages I found far exceeded my original criteria.
I have always found the Future Fit instructional staff to be totally professional with an in-depth knowledge of their subjects and are able to teach at a pace that encourages interest and enhances learning. Additionally, I have always found the support staff helpful, understanding and a friendly voice at the end of the phone.
I still work full time for the MoD. My spare time is taken up training both service and civilian personnel on the base, taking spinning classes and a fair amount of 1-2-1 training.
I am leaving the Civil Service in March 2013 and I am looking forward to starting my own personal training business, with the emphasis on training clients in the 40+ age group who find the gym a scary place and would rather exercise in a more relaxed environment. (Hence my last course, Client Psychology and Motivation).
