Qualifications

I believe it’s important as a fitness professional to allow people to know that I’m qualified to give exercise advise to clients and I’m that I’m also partaking in continued learning development.

I have a Level 3 Personal Training Qualification from Train Fitness, London. I also hold a Level 3 qualification in Adapting Exercise for Pre & Postnatal Clients.

(It’s incredibly important that personal trainers have this extra qualifications when training pregnant women and new mothers.)

I’m currently doing a Level 4 in Nutrition to become a qualified Nutrition Coach. This will give me the ability to go more in depth with client’s diets as a Personal Training qualification does not cover that.

Here’s a list of health conditions that I’ve covered with my GP Referral qualification, (meaning I have the knowledge to adapt exercise for individuals with the following health conditions.)

If you’re unsure about training with your health condition, please speak to your GP or Healthcare Professional.
