Success Story - Linda Jefferies
"I would recommend Future Fit as they were all very helpful and I’ve made some really good friends on the courses."
Fitness is my main passion and I have been teaching it for 18 years as it works well around my other commitments.
Although I was already teaching aerobics, I really wanted to progress and offer Personal Training as part of my services. Also, during my classes I’m always getting people asking me advice, so I wanted to keep my training up-to-date so that I had all of the latest information to hand.
I primarily chose Future Fit based on a recommendation from a friend that had already attended a course. The courses also looked like they would work well around my home, work and family life. I didn’t really want to pay a large amount up front so it was great that I could pay as I went along. The advertisements I saw in fitness magazines were what finally inspired me to call.
I teach 5 classes a week – 2 for a leisure centre and 3 are my own classes. Before I started the course I had never done any weight work and I was totally helped throughout the course. In my classes I tended to mainly do aerobic type exercises, and now after attending the Gym and Personal Training courses I feel more confident teaching with weights – which my participants really enjoy and are gaining the benefits from too.
Working in the health and fitness industry is very important as so few people do enough exercise – which in the long term is pretty scary. I enjoy exercise and I want to pass that on. People at my classes always come back as they say it is good fun, which is want I want. I try to not be a serious instructor, but to make sure they enjoy my classes and want to come back for more and more. I am very passionate about fitness and I hope that comes across in a nice way.
The standard at Future Fit is very good, the training and support has been great value for money, I always feel that you get what you pay for and I still want to take more courses with Future Fit in the future. I would recommend Future Fit as they were all very helpful and I’ve made some really good friends on the courses – who I think will always be around now.
