As a youngster, sport and exercise were most definitely not my favourite activities and it was only as I hit my late twenties that I began to take much more of an interest.
Gym memberships came and went and I tried many a time to ‘get into running’ but found it hard and demoralising, and could never stick with it for longer than about a week. But eventually, after a lot of perseverance, I managed to build up my fitness bit by bit and now that I’m in my late thirties I can proudly say I’ve completed many races from 5k to half marathon, twice finishing in the top ten in the annual Bournemouth Race for Life.
As well as running, I also incorporate a variety of other training methods into my own fitness regime which is something I include for all of my clients. After becoming a Gym Instructor I qualified as a Personal Trainer, and have been training clients in a local leisure centre for several years, with excellent results.
In addition to my Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications, I have also undertaken additional training as part of my continued professional development – a full breakdown of my qualifications can be found here. I am also fully insured, qualified in first aid and a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).
Choosing a fully qualified and experienced Personal Trainer can make all the difference between success and failure, and given that you’ll be parting with your hard-earned cash, you want results along with value for money. It is therefore my role as the Personal Trainer to train you in the correct manner to ensure results.
You should always look for a Trainer who is fully qualified and has the correct certification – a lack of this information could indicate that they are not fully qualified.
You can check this on the REPs website – REPs is an independent organisation that provides a public registration service and a quick search for the Trainer on the website will show you if they are registered…or not.
