"The day that I got the email to say I had passed my course, Sean Weir Fitness was advertising for a new personal trainer. I applied for the job and had an interview the next day. 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."
“After quitting my job as a director of two preschools in Bondi, I started the fast track course with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. Within 2 weeks I began managing the gym due to my previous experience and within in 12 months, I bought the gym from my mentor! The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers enabled me to get started in my business and now I’m a campus director for AIPT, and I love helping others achieve their dream.”
