Just over a year ago, I qualified as a Personal Trainer.
It was the best thing I ever did.
I followed my dream.
I get to share my passion for fitness and wellbeing daily.
My main area of expertise are Kettlebells – I have taken a masterclass in Kettlebells – I know my stuff!
I started teaching Kettlebell classes in January this year, I was taking classes on behalf of someone. Numbers were slow to take off but I was determined to share my love of Kettlebells and get more women, in particular, doing weights. It was a slow process and numbers plateaued around 8 – 10 people per class, sometimes less.
In July, I decided to go it alone and set up my own classes – starting with 2 a week. I was putting in so much effort to spread the word, I thought it only right that I should reap the rewards.
Last night, I had 23 people in my class – numbers are increasing weekly and I will now have to cap the class at 23 just for safety reasons and my poor car, that has to transport the kettlebells to the classes!
Did I ever think I would be stood in front of 23 people a year ago, encouraging, motivating and getting them to work hard in my class – never. Some of you might find it hard to believe, I hate public speaking. But when you are passionate about something, you can do it.
I have now added a third class starting a week Saturday.
I love it.
I love my classes. I love the enthusiasm. I love how everyone pushes themselves. I love how they secretly enjoy the class – they don’t tell me this, but I can tell. I love their support.
I love Kettlebells.
