I now instruct five boot camps and two box fit classes a week and I have many personal training clients. I am currently employed by Sean Weir Fitness and am looking to start my Diploma of Fitness with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. I am so happy to be doing a job that I love and look forward to going to work everyday."
