Anne Hansford testimonial

Anne Hansford

Outstanding - everyone at OriGym has been brilliant!

Overall, this has been a fantastic learning experience from my initial contact through my L2 practical assessment and beyond.

Tom did a fantastic job of getting me set up -- answering all of my questions and giving me plenty of time to really think through what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. He gave me several options for choosing a selection of courses that would help me achieve my goals and suggested the best method for doing that (blended online and in person workshops). He was friendly, patient, and confident throughout, without being pushy.

Can't overstate how valuable the workshop with Olivia was in helping prepare me for the practical assessment and in giving me a boost of confidence that I really needed. She was fantastic -- so knowledgeable, a great teacher, but really friendly and fun to be around too.

Chloe oversaw my assessment and she was also fantastic. Incredibly professional, and also really encouraging. And I was amazed at the detailed feedback she provided at the end of the session. Meanwhile, every person I have spoken to on the phone has been great -- again, professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient (even when they're answering questions they must have heard a thousand times before!).

Origym is clearly committed to excellence, and they have definitely built a team of top-rate professionals who are delivering a top-rate service.

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
