Becky Thomson – Telephone Support Tutor – “The Cheeky One”
Becky has worked for Focus Training for 7 years as both a telephone support tutor and course tutor. Having left to have her son, fitness fanatic Becky couldn’t stay away for long and was back teaching on a part-time basis just a few weeks after he was born.
A true people person, Becky walks our students through every inch of their personal training courses. With a fitness qualification of her own, she knows first hand how brain-crunching the learning process can be, so her vast experience and uber cool communication skills come in handy when our students need some solid support!
She’s a straight talker with a cheeky charm that keeps our students at ease and our office lively!
We asked Becky…
