Gym Instructor/Personal Trainer

Freelance (Ongoing)
Mar 2010 - 2015

Gym Instructor / Personal Trainer

I have a total of five years’ experience in gym instruction and personal training and a further 10 years’ experience in swimming teaching, coaching and general sports guidance.

After completing my YMCA gym instruction award in 2004, I found I had a love for knowledge of the human body, the way our muscles work and passing this knowledge onto others to aid them in achieving their personal goals.

I went on to pass my REPS levels 2 and 3 and further built on my knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, nutritional and dietary needs and the muscular make-up of the human body.

After this I put my knowledge into practice working for Chris Whitehouse at Project FIT Body Conditioning Centre in January 2011. During my time here I built up a good client base for personal training and my duties included:

o General up-keep and maintenance of gym equipment.
o Performing in-depth inductions for new clients, ensuring they have a good knowledge of all gym equipment, upholding the utmost health and safety standards.
o Building up a good relationship with clients so they feel comfortable and at ease through communication.

o Producing fitness programmes that are tailored to the client and relevant to their fitness needs.
o Identifying primary and long-term objective(s) / goal(s) of the client.
o Managing, evaluating and improving performance through physical activity.
o Identifying any mobility impairments.
o Nutritional advice and weight management were also key skills I've acquired.

As I progressed and became more knowledgeable and experienced, I initiated my own personal one-to-one and group PT sessions with various different clients in various different gyms since 2012. These include:

  • -  Triple B's Fitness Studio, (Hampton Court, SURREY)

  • -  Langley Leisure Centre, (Langley, BERKSHIRE)

  • -  Montem Lane Spa and Fitness, (Slough, BERKSHIRE)

    I also trained in homes and outdoor areas to include circuit training, body conditioning and resistance work. Since this time, I have developed an impressive and loyal client-base.

Front of House / Manager

The Cattle Grid Steak House, Royal Windsor
Dec 2007 - Jul 2010

Working front of house at this busy family run restaurant allowed me to build on my love of providing customers with the very best in service, friendly advice and building a good regular clientele for the restaurant. I thrived on the excellent customer feedback we received day in day out and I was able to apply my knowledge of the different cuts of meat and methods of cooking from my previous employment as a Royal Butcher.

My hard work and enthusiasm was soon recognised and saw me promoted to floor manager. My duties included:

o Open/close of the premises including full cash-up on a daily basis.
o Producing realistic daily targets based on past data.
o Producing weekly staff rotas ensuring we were correctly staffed in order to maximise service and keep staffing cost to a minimum.
o Training and guidance of new staff and management of all floor staff on any given shift.
o Maximising team moral and upholding the friendly family atmosphere.
o Placing weekly orders for all beverages whilst keeping to budgets.
o I was also able to assist in the kitchen with food production when there was any staff shortage due to my qualifications with food. I am also a keen cook in my spare time and have a wide knowledge of cooking.

I was fortunate enough to meet Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip in person and talk about my experience as a Royal Butcher.
