Dean Dallas

Personal Trainer

Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Before OriGym Dean was pursuing a career in football. After setbacks due to injury, Dean developed an interest in strength and conditioning and injury prevention, pivoting his career into becoming a qualified personal trainer.

OriGym really stood out to me because I was able to complete my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer qualifications in my own time without deadlines. This really took the stress off and allowed me to go about my daily schedule without interruption.

The tutors at OriGym created a great support network and provided us with practical workshops to further our development. I am now a certified personal trainer and can’t wait to help future clients in achieving their goals!

Heather Hacking, Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer.

Founder of Heather Hacking PT

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

As a mother of three children after spending the past nine years building her career as a solicitor, Heather made the decision to follow a life-long passion for health, wellness and fitness, and pursue a career as a personal trainer.

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.
