Ever since I first got into fitness and heard about Train Manchester I’ve regarded them as the ultimate training facility in the city, so when I got my very first Personal Training position there I mega proud to be a part of the team. I trained part-time for six months until I felt ready to go fully self-employed in August 2018.
I never feel like I know enough, so ongoing education is something extremely important to me to ensure I’m offering the best service possible as a Personal Trainer. That’s why I have a piece of news to share with you that is very exciting to me, and will hopefully help you in your journey to becoming a fitness professional too! Watch the video to learn more…
Sometimes I still have ‘pinch me’ moments about my life and career right now – of course it’s nowhere close to perfect and I have a long way to go, but I can’t believe that I’m now over three months in to my journey of self employment. I’ve had a think about my past few months as solely working as a Personal Trainer – read on to find out what I’ve learned during that time.
Just over a year ago I hiked the Camino de Santiago, and I wrote about what you should know plus what I learned doing it. I covered the walking, the recovery, and the friendships along the way – but what I didn’t talk about was what I truly learned and how the trip inspired me.
I spent the week with a group of incredibly inspiring people who were all living their own dreams and doing their own thing, and smashing it hard – and it made me think, why not me?
The secret is out – the past few months I’ve been working hard around my job and blog to qualify as a Level 2 Gym Instructor! It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years but was worried how I’d be able to fit the work in – but really it’s a completely manageable course as long as you’re willing to devote a couple of hours to it.
I did mine with Lifetime Training and will continue on to my Level 3 with them (I’ll cover the decision-making process for the fitness provider in another post) so I thought I’d cover the process on my blog for anyone else who’s feeling nervous about doing the course. As ever, any further questions please feel free to comment here, on my social media, or send me an email, but for now read on for my tips on becoming a Level 2 Gym Instructor.
