We caught up with one of our learners, Jordan to find out about his experience of learning with us.
What made you choose HTP?
“I’d heard good things from a friend, so I decided to take a look at the website. I really liked the sound of the fitness programmes as I’m really passionate about fitness, so I thought I’d apply. It was easily the best decision I’ve made”.
What course have you been doing?
“Last year I joined the Level 2 Gym Instructing which was great, and at the moment, I’m doing my Level 3 Personal Training”.
What do you enjoy most about learning with us?
“I enjoy the course – it’s a great mix of classroom learning and getting out and about on work experience. The tutors are great and are really approachable, and I’ve made so many friends. We all share the same interests and we have a great network together, both at college and socially, too”.
How have you changed as a person since you started learning with us?
“It would have to be my confidence. It’s just sky-rocketed, whether it’s talking to someone face to face, on the phone, or leading a PT session with clients, I’m just way more confident. It’s helped me so much”.
What advice would you give someone thinking about joining us?
“I would say go for it! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I promise you won’t regret it. It’s not like school. You still work hard but it’s more laid back, and it’s great to do activities and work experience, too”.
So, what’s next for you?
“I want to get a job as a Personal Trainer in a small gym and grow my profile. My longer-term plan is to move away and train VIPs and celebrities”
Do you think you’re ready for the next step?
“Yes, definitely. I’ve been running programmes for friends and family members for a while now, and I always get great feedback from them, so I genuinely feel like I’m ready for the next step”.
