Hazel Anderson Success Story
What is your background with exercise and fitness training and why did you choose the course you did?
I am a Level 3 Personal Trainer, GP Exercise Referral Specialist, Les Mills Bodypump & Spin Instructor.
I have been working in the exercise and fitness industry for 4 years now (initially working in a London office for 10 years) and love every second of it! It’s truly incredible to see so many people getting such great benefits from physical activity. I’m very lucky to be able to say I love my job!
Why did you choose the course you did?
I wanted something to supplement the high energy classes I was teaching and also to help me assist my GP Referral clients more with Pilates as well as my over 50’s group.
Why did you choose HFe to deliver your training?
The cost of the course was very competitive and it wasn’t too far to travel to training location. I also had good feedback from a colleague who had previously completed her Pilates qualification through HFE.
