For 10 years I worked in finance but being honest I couldn’t wait to get out of the office and hit the gym at 5.30pm, and I mean right on 5.30pm.mI don’t remember ever staying a minute late! See finance was never for me, it was just a job. I always loved sport and exercise and by the timed I reached 25 I was training at the gym 6 days a week – looking back its where it all began for me.
I spent 5 years working for a rather large media company before being made redundant in 2006. Not sure what my next step would be my supervisor said “why don’t you enrol on a Personal Training course, after all you are always at the gym!”. So I did, along with a Sports Massage course.
However, once I had completed the course I had the small issue of plucking up the courage to find a job at a gym. See, I wasn’t the super confident PT, in fact it took me a number of years to find my groove. But by a stroke of luck, whilst taking some time off after my redundancy, I was at my usual gym having a mid morning workout and got chatting to the manager there. He mentioned that the gym was looking for Personal Trainers and offered me something there and then.
