I am keen to join the team at Golden Leisure Centres, a company that has an excellent reputation in all fields of corporate health management, and renowned for providing excellent opportunities to young trainers.
By way of qualifications, I have a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science from James Cook University, several First Aid certificates, have completed sport/remedial massage courses and have done management training.
My areas of expertise are fitness assessments and muscle testing, and one-on-one and group training sessions. I am experienced in remedial, Swedish and sports massage and am familiar with all facets of OH&S.
As Health and Lifestyle Instructor at Gearsons, I honed my group fitness skills and initiated a number of educational seminars and health awareness programs, as well as organised company fitness competitions. Working as a Personal Trainer at Meredith Hotel prior to that, I lead one-on-one fitness training with a broad range of clientele as well as assisted with marketing the hotel’s fitness services.
I have also worked with athletes, training and fitness testing the Sunshine Football Team.
My work experience has allowed me to gain experience with a broad spectrum of physical needs and different roles within the fitness environment. My experience has also given me excellent time management and organisational skills. I am outgoing, organised and compassionate, and I am able to motivate people with my energy and enthusiasm.
