Our team are passionate about supporting our students to become qualified Fitness Professionals. We’re fanatic about fitness, developing those who strive for career success in the leisure sector, and shaping the leaders of the future in Health and Well-being! We’re also a nice bunch too!
So we thought we’d take you behind the scenes to meet the team.
This week, it’s…
Melanie Pemberton – Course Advisor – “The Chatterbox”
Course Adviser Melanie co-ordinates all those budding fitness professionals of the future that choose to study with Focus. She probably wouldn’t say she’s a saleswoman but she certainly knows how to promote our courses and is always chattering on about how great they are! Surprisingly, she doesn’t get paid extra for that.
Before joining the team, Melanie lived in Spain for 11 years, running her own travel agency selling holidays all over the world.
When she’s not gassing away to new students on the phone, jet-setter Melanie loves to visit friends and family all over the world, where she can usually be found indulging her serious additction to shopping. If she’s in her home town, she’ll most likely be brushing up on her pub quiz skills over a Vodka or two.
We asked Melanie…
