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.
