The most enjoyable factors about my job is the variety and rewarding nature of helping others
I joined the Army Catering Corps straight from school where I initially trained as an apprentice chef. After my passing out parade, I was posted to Minden in Germany where I served with my unit 4 Armoured Field Ambulance. During this time, we were detached on tour to Croatia, Zagreb and Bosnia. I left the forces in May 1995 as I felt I may have been missing out on everyday life.
What was important to you when choosing a training provider?
The most important factor for me when choosing a training provider was one that enabled me to study from home because of my busy schedule and the location where I live. In addition to this, I was looking for a course where I would gain industry recognised qualifications. I was impressed by the variety of courses offered on Future Fit Training’s website.
My current role
I run my own PT business, alongside running a Circuit Training group in my local town. I also work in my local council leisure centre.
After attaining my GP referral qualification with Future Fit, I have been involved in helping to set up and run a dedicated exercise class for Parkinson’s sufferers. The class aims to ease some of the effects of their Parkinson’s, helping sufferers to maintain activities of everyday living.
