Diane Wassell Success Story
What is your background with exercise and fitness training?
I have always been a keen exercise enthusiast and taken part in classes since I was 17 years old. I have worked on the reception at The Fitness Factory for a while and taken part in classes there also.
Why did you choose the course you did?
I chose to do the Level 2 Exercise To Music qualification as it was what I needed to be qualified to teach aerobic based classes which is what i am looking to do.
Why did you choose HFE to deliver your training?
HFE got in touch with The Fitness Factory about the training courses which they deliver. I decided to go with them as I could do distance learning which was by far the best option for me. I would not have enjoyed sitting in a classroom for hours!
What did you enjoy most about your course?
Becoming a qualified instructor and knowing I am fully capable to teaching classes now. The practical weekends really pieced everything together which my support tutor had helped me prepare for.
I felt very supported during the whole of my course. My support tutor gave me weekly phone calls which helped me stay focused and on track.
What did you find most challenging about your course?
The theory section was the most difficult for me as I have not done anything like this before. Without the help of Gary; my support tutor, and my friends I would have really struggled.
How would you rate the quality of teaching provided by your course tutors?
The teaching was excellent and without the help of the tutors i wouldnt have felt confident going into the final assessments. Again, without the help of Gary I think I would have given up.
To what extent did you feel supported during the home-study phase of your course?
I felt very supported during the whole of my course. My support tutor gave me weekly phone calls which helped me stay focused and on track. It also reassured me that what I had revised had sunk in!
How would you rate the teaching and learning materials provided to you?
The learning materials, both the manuals and the online system, were very good and very useful. I have them as a reference now for if I ever forget anything!
What is your current role?
I work on the reception at The Fitness Factory and from January 2014 will be teaching 4 classes a week.
What are your future training and career plans?
To keep teaching classes. I may in the future progress in to other areas of fitness and no doubt if i do ill be contacting HFE again!
