What is your background with exercise and fitness training?
I have qualified as a personal trainer about a year ago with HFE and since then I worked in a gym environment as a Personal Trainer/Manager. I have recently decided to leave the manager role and focus on personal training and to specialise.
Why did you choose HFE to deliver your training?
I previously completed the Level 3 Personal Trainer course with HFE and I was very satisfied. Course prices were realistic and they offered excellent tutoring support.
What did you enjoy most about your course?
I really enjoyed the material. Got a great knowledge of each condition and HFE supported me throughout the course.
What did you find most challenging about your course?
I am foreign and a visual learner. The learning material was great but there were a few things that I found hard to understand. I think a few more illustrations would probably have solved that. However after doing some research and getting support from my tutor, I was able to deal with these problems.
How would you rate the quality of teaching provided by your course tutors?
My allocated support tutor was amazing. He seemed to be pretty quick with the answers to my questions.
The course teacher was also amazing. She put us at ease as soon as we started the practical days. She was also very helpful and friendly.
To what extent did you feel supported during the home-study phase of your course?
My allocated tutor was always friendly and provided me with all the answers I needed.
How would you rate the teaching and learning materials provided to you?
The training manual was great but would put a few more illustrations.
What is your current role?
I am a full-time Personal Trainer.
What are your future training and career plans?
I would like to go ahead and start the Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes course and was considering working for NHS.
