“”

I especially enjoy all of the practical lectures and training where we get to coach different sports and devise strength and conditioning programmes. I currently work at a local leisure centre as a trained gym instructor and personal trainer. After the course I'd like to teach strength and conditioning to athletes and diversify into sport and fitness rehabilitation.
