I have always enjoyed working out and being fit, but I have noticed that gyms are now becoming more and more used by smaller, younger, “fitter” people. I still get intimidated using new gyms. I want to allow people to access fitness in their own homes or safe space – working with them to get the best out of themselves. I have used small equipment and home workouts to get fit and stronger, and I want to bring this to people who can’t or won’t use a gym.
Remember that your client has different needs and goals to you - you are there to work with them, not have them along in your workout. Listen to what they are really saying, not what you think they are saying. Don't under-value your worth in the industry - you will find your niche and people to work with.Fiona Trent
I became interested in fitness in my mid-20s when I moved to a new area. I joined a gym and made friends, and got the buzz. I also started a triathlon with a work pal. Over the last few years, I have enjoyed the gym more and more and wanted to turn my hobby into something which would help other people get love for it. I am still working full time in a job – but with the view to reduce hours and take early retirement if I’m am successful in my fitness career.
I contacted various companies and read a lot of reviews. The blended approach of online and face-to-face training appealed to me. I have taken the L2 Gym instructor course and L3 PT, Circuits, Kettlebell, Core and Suspension training courses. I have also taken the L4 RSPH Nutrition course. I am about to start my sports massage training and L4 PT course. I really enjoyed learning about nutrition, which surprised me, and I like putting that into practice.
I am proud that within a year and still working full time, I have achieved the qualifications to be a personal trainer. I enjoy delivering boot camps to my rugby team, which caters to all levels, and seeing their results on and off the pitch.

I like the ease of studying when I can – and being able to move things if work gets too busy. The support from the tutor, by email and on the Facebook groups, is great.
