Wendy Caley Success Story
What is your background with exercise and fitness training?
I have always been involved in sport and fitness from my school days to the present; I enjoy running, aerobics, body combat and the gym.
Why did you choose the course you did?
I chose to do the Level 2 Exercise To Music as a starting point to gain a qualification, with a view to pursuing a career in the fitness industry.
Why did you choose HFE to deliver your training?
I chose HFE after extensively searching and researching other options. HFE offered an incredible range of courses to choose from, great value for money and I liked the fact that the practical part of the qualification was available at a location local to me!
What did you enjoy most about your course?
The Level 2 Exercise To Music course appealed to me as I found that I could fit the course around my working life. Using the website portal was really easy and also extremely useful for working through the necessary sections at a pace which suited me.
What did you find most challenging about your course?
The challenge for me was time. There was quite a lot to learn and I had to work hard at scheduling the right amount of time to achieve the standard required.
Fully colored manuals accompanied by a great online system really helped me through this course.
How would you rate the quality of teaching provided by your course tutors?
Excellent! I can’t rate them high enough. They have extensive knowledge in the areas which they specialise in and this comes across in the practical training weekends.
To what extent did you feel supported during the home-study phase of your course?
I felt that I was supported all the way through my course. It was a great help to me to know that if I had a question or wanted my sections resetting on my website portal, I could just pick up the phone or email Gregg who would action straight away. Initially Gregg would ring regularly and weekly phone calls were also an option but often my work load during the day did not permit this.
How would you rate the teaching and learning materials provided to you?
The teaching materials were brilliant! Fully colored manuals accompanied by a great online system really helped me through this course.
What is your current role?
What are your future training and career plans?
I would like to hold my own fitness classes in the area where I live, but I am not quite sure yet what class I am going to teach and also if I can find a vacancy at a Leisure and Fitness Club or within a hotel’s fitness facility that would be great, as eventually I would like to leave my PA work behind.
