Follow Your Dreams

“Follow your dreams, it’s never too late”. That’s the advice from Aroona, who has recently completed the Active IQ L3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training qualification with us.

Aroona has been an avid gym bunny for over 20 years, and throughout that time she kept having that nagging thought, come on, be honest we’ve all had it…. ‘I want to be a PT, how do I become a Personal Trainer, where do I start, what qualifications do I need to be a PT’. She’d got close a few times but either family commitments or a pushy training company had stopped her taking the plunge and following her dream.

Aroona really enjoyed the Les Mills, Body Combat, Body Balance and Body Pump classes at her local gym, so she contacted Les Mills, and they advised her she’d need to complete a L3 Personal Trainer Course to deliver their group classes.

In 2019 she signed up to run a 10k for Cancer Research in Kew Gardens London, encouraged by the Personal Trainer she was working with, she again decided to look into completing a PT Course. She contacted a couple of the companies who always show up at the top of Google Ads, but after speaking with a hard sell salesperson, Aroona felt the company wasn’t going to be right for her. It was then that her Personal Trainer recommended she contact Fitasylum.

In Aroona’s own words, “It was a no brainer, I contacted Fitasylum, and they helped me fund my Personal Trainer Course with an Advanced Learning Loan”. We asked Aroona how she found the Online Personal Trainer Course, “Nathan was amazing, the support he gave me throughout the whole course was A1, I’d jump online when Nathan was on and he’d give me 1 to 1 support and guidance for an hour at a time if I needed it and explained everything to me, nothing was too much trouble for him. He definitely helped me through it, I managed to complete the course in 16 weeks”.

“The course is very intense though, I’ve been going to the gym for 20 years but the information you learn about training programs, nutrition and anatomy is fantastic. It certainly helps when you get 1 to 1 tutor support though. Not only has my knowledge improved, but it’s also helped me improve my own fitness,” said Aroona.

Aroona has only just completed her Personal Trainer qualification and is working with clients on a freelance basis, she also has an interview scheduled as a Blaze Instructor at David Lloyd this week… best of luck with your interview Aroona, you can follow Aroona on her Instagram profile.
