I am just beginning my journey as a professional health and fitness coach. My ultimate goal is to work with world class sportspeople and athletes to help them to perform at the highest level possible.
I’ve always had a love of sporting activity and dreamed that I could work within a sporting environment. I am currently undertaking a BTEC Sport Level 3 Extended Diploma Course. I specifically chose this course because it covers a wide range of topics, including sports massage, fitness training and testing, anatomy and biomechanics, physiology and treatment of sports injuries. I intend to continue my studies at University, whilst continuing my work as a sports and fitness coach.
I recently completed the Level 2 Gym Instructors’ course – which I really enjoyed. I love being able to develop a client’s fitness and self-confidence, helping with their weight management and giving them a more positive body image. I can also help to advise on injury recovery and rehabilitation. I can prepare individualised gym programmes and exercises to suit clients’ specific needs. Seeing a client’s rapid progress in a few weeks is really rewarding.
My diploma courses, combined with working with experienced professionals at The Edge EPT, has greatly improved my communication, organisation and expertise when working with groups and individual clients.
