Student Case Study

Tell us a little bit about what you were doing before taking our course. Were you employed in the fitness industry already or did you come to us from a completely different background?

I am the owner of a milkshake bar. Before the course I was regularly attending the gym and I am a keen runner, completing races from 10k to 50 miles and I also really enjoy doing obstacle course racing, which combined everything I was doing into one.

What was it that made you decide to take one of our courses?

I have a real passion for health and fitness, and I am also intrigued by what the human body can do. I decided that ideally, I would like to pursue a career in this sector. I looked at a variety of courses that were available and settled on Focus for two reasons

  1. I could pay with a student loan
  2. When I enquired everyone was really friendly and helpful, without being pushy.
  • Once the course was completed what have you used your new skills for? How has it impacted your life/employment?

Since completing my course, I have set up my own studio, WN4 Fitness and I am gradually building up my clients. Every time I finish training a client my mood is boosted, they’re happy, I’m happy and I know I made the right decision taking this course.

What are your future plans? Will you take any further courses? Do you have a business idea?

In the future I have plans to sell my milkshake bar business and go into fitness full time. I have been looking at broadening my knowledge with further courses with focus training. The thing I like best about this industry is that there’s always something to learn.

If you had a piece of advice for a learner trying to decide whether they should take one of our courses what would it be?

For anyone trying to decide whether to do a course with Focus I can highly recommend it, the tutors are really knowledgeable and so keen for you to learn. I’m 100% glad I went for it, I wish I’d done it years ago.
