Joy Findlay Success Story

Headshot of Joy

What is your background in exercise?

I have participated in group fitness classes regularly for over 10 years and found I was becoming more interested in how classes were constructed, why I liked some more than others, what the movements were aiming to achieve etc. My interest grew to a point where I decided that the only way to the answers was to train to deliver the classes myself!

The assessors were fantastic and I am sure that what they don’t know about exercise is not worth knowing!

Why did you choose HFE to deliver your training?

I chose HFE because it offered flexible distance learning as I work full-time. I also had heard positive things from new instructors at my gym who had also trained with HFE.

What did you enjoy most about your HFE course?

I really enjoyed the practical weekends – they were really challenging in terms of the volume of information you have to take in and the ‘being thrown in the deep end’ feeling of having to practice teaching very early on. BUT, that is why it is a successful programme and you build confidence quickly.

The assessors were fantastic and I am sure that what they don’t know about exercise is not worth knowing!

What is your current role?

I work full-time in University administration.

What are your future plans?

I want to take on some classes alongside my ‘day job’ to give me more variety. The next big step is to do my Les Mills Body Attack initial training to allow me to teach my favourite class!
