Heather Stewart

Meet your Leeds Lead Tutor, Heather Stewart.

I have worked in the fitness industry since as long as I can remember! I did gymnastics as a child and went on to compete at a national level. Wanting to pass on my love for sport to others, I coached gymnastics for several years. I then completed a degree in Physical Activity and Health, as well as qualifying in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training. I went on to work as a PT abroad, gaining experience in all aspects of the industry. When I returned to the UK, I completed my Level 3 and 4 in sports massage. Inspired by my love of teaching others, I decided to complete a PGCE so I could teach sport in schools. 

I can’t wait to use all of my experience, passion and energy to help others take their first steps into the industry that I love and know so well!”

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.

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.

Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer

I love my new career!

Before joining OriGym, Sue worked in a gym as a Membership Sales Advisor. Many new members asked if Sue would be willing to train them, but as she wasn't qualified, she had to keep turning them down. Researching several companies, Sue enrolled on OriGym's Personal Training Diploma and has never looked back!

I researched many fitness courses but kept coming back to OriGym. I felt a good vibe from the team and the owners Luke and Steph are friendly & down to earth. I loved how involved they were in the courses! The course itself was AMAZING! The staff and teachers were fantastic, I really felt that they cared about me and my progress, going above and beyond what I had ever expected from them.

I’m now a confident Personal Trainer working for an international gym chain. The future looks so bright for me; I’m even enquiring about doing a season on a Cruise ship as part of the Royal Caribbean fitness team! OriGym has helped to make my dreams come true.
