Dafydd James was a Rugby player who played 48 times for Wales, scoring 15 tries and toured with the British & Irish Lions. He played for Sale Sharks, Harlequins and Cardiff Blues amongst other prestigious clubs, making over 300 club a during his professional career.

I want to advance myself, refresh existing knowledge and I'd like to develop a business utilising this Nutrition qualification that can help other people.

After researching online and looking at various courses, I was happy to choose a recognised qualification which is what OriGym offers. Additionally, it was important for me to see that there is a lot of positive feedback from reviews, as well as the course content looked thorough and in depth.

I chose this course as I'm looking to add another dimension and skillset to my business. If I can utilise the framework provided by OriGym, I will be able to develop business opportunities and educate anyone from the general public to professional athletes. Not only this, but I'm looking to personally develop and create a successful business using support from OriGym.

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace!
