I had worked a 9 – 5 job for 16 years and it was time for a change. I gave Dan a call and we spoke in detail about the course over the telephone. Dan understood what a big decision it was for me to leave my job and retrain as a personal trainer. He took the time to talk to me about the course and didn’t pressure me into doing it. He knew that his course was good and that I would get all the support I needed so he didn’t have to do the big sell. And he was right. I loved it.
I started doing the Level 2 Gym Instructor course and with Dan’s support, I really enjoyed it. After working with Dan there was no doubt I was going to move on to the Level 3 Personal Training course, which I did after a brief three-month break. The learning environment really suited me and there is lots of support both online and offline. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to start a career in fitness.
I am so happy that I made the change. I now work for myself and that gives me so much flexibility, I pick up my kids from school on Fridays. It would be fair to say that it is the hardest work I have ever done, but it is also the most satisfying. Every effort I put in is rewarded, it’s not like working for a corporate where both the effort and the rewards are shared by the group. In this business my efforts are directly rewarded. And every time I go to work I am doing something I love, helping people to lead healthier lives – it is so fulfilling.
I wouldn’t change anything and have a huge amount to thank Dan for as he could see that if I made the change I was going to love my work and its true. He has continued to be supportive of me, following my progress since I graduated in 2017.
