Olivia Mayfield

Meet the Colchester lead tutor, Olivia Mayfield.

My love for sports and physical activity started at an early age. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved being active and keeping moving! I have always been particularly interested in how moving our bodies can affect our mental health and quality of life. 

My fascination in the link between physical and mental health is what led me to complete a BSc in Sport Psychology at university. I then qualified as a Personal Trainer so I could deepen my knowledge and apply it to helping people achieve their fitness goals. Now, as a tutor for OriGym, I get to share my passion for the fitness industry with others!

Dean Dallas, Qualified Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer

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.

Guy Thompson

Former Leicester & Wasps Rugby Player

Before studying with OriGym, Guy was a professional Ruby player for both Wasps and Leicester Tigers and is currently playing for Eailing. Guy chose to complete his fitness qualifications with OriGym as the option to study around his career via online learning and OriGym looked the most "simple and professional" compared to other providers.


After being in and around professional sport for 13 years, this is a natural progression after learning from World Leading S&C coaches. Becoming a personal trainer will allow me to implement this knowledge for helping people and helping people achieve their goals away from sport. I'd really want to focus on helping people in their everyday lives through both mental and physical wellbeing.

OriGym's tutors have been excellent, with great feedback and the content is perfect for someone looking to get started in the industry.
