When I joined South Devon College I intended to complete two qualifications Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer. I ended up leaving with eight! Including indoor cycling, circuits, chair based exercise and many more. I also won Fitness Instructor of the Year at the annual award ceremony - which was a HUGE achievement for me. I joined to change my life, my career and also came out with an amazing award for my hard work. I went straight into teaching as soon as I qualified with my Level 2, I worked as a fitness instructor teaching indoor cycling first off and this soon escalated into aqua, and many other types of classes, I was covering classes regularly as well as taking my own weekly classes. As soon as I was a qualified personal trainer (PT) I started offering that as well. I am now a well established Instructor and PT with regular classes and clients. I cannot explain how much doing these qualifications has changed my career, changed my world and I absolutely love what I do! I will always be especially grateful to Gary Stephens - Gary was my main tutor and a massive support to me, alongside the fantastic support of Simon Holden, Lynn Stephens and Niall Thompson, I couldn't have done it without any of you!
