Zuzana Rievajova Success Story
What is your background with exercise and fitness training?
I am Hatha Yoga and Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga qualified although my main job is Receptionist at the moment.
Why did you choose the course you did?
I’ve always loved Pilates and wanted to learn more. I also would like to combine it with Yoga and teach it together in the future. .
Why did you choose HFE to deliver your training?
For me the main reason why I picked up HFE was the dates and location of practical training. I am mother of a 2 years old and I work Monday to Friday so for me it would be very hard to travel for weekends too far away or go somewhere for more than 6 days. Also, I compared prices with other companies and HFE was one of the cheapest.
I knew I could call my tutor when I needed help and also he called me on our pre set up times so I could ask any questions I had.
What did you enjoy most about your course?
I enjoyed weekends in Thistle Barbican, although it was very tiring and hard to spend 2 full days away. But that’s where I learnt the most, particularly correction workshop on the last weekend, found it quite funny and it helped me to prepare better for my final practical assessment.
What did you find most challenging about your course?
The practical exam on the last day and also the Anatomy and Physiology test. Also the fact that on the last weekend we had both theory tests as well as practical assessment.
How would you rate the quality of teaching provided by your course tutors?
Very good. Our tutors tried to explain everything and were happy to answer our questions. They also had great sense of humour which helps when you learn.
To what extent did you feel supported during the home-study phase of your course?
I felt well supported, I knew I could call my tutor when I needed help and also he called me on our pre set up times so I could ask any questions I had.
How would you rate the teaching and learning materials provided to you?
They were very good. In the beginning I had a little problem with system, but maybe it was just my PC. There were few differences between what was on LMS and in the book so I studied from both to successfully complete assessments on LMS. I liked the mock tests, they helped me to prepare for final exams.
What is your current role?
I work as Receptionist in London.
What are your future training and career plans?
I would like to keep my job which I like but also teach some Pilates and Yoga classes in the evenings or weekends.
