I had been working in my parent's bar as a waitress for 15 years in Belfast, but really wanted to achieve something for myself.
I researched around for personal trainer courses, but found many companies were overpriced or did not operate in Northern Ireland. I decided to enrol with OriGym based on their excellent reviews and a great conversation I had with John, who seemed to show a genuine interest in my career.
I completed OriGym's Online Personal Trainer course, which really suited my personal circumstances and allowed me to learn and work at the same time, in order to pay off my course fees.
I am now enjoying running my own business as a running coach and I run fitness retreats in Lanzarote and Switzerland twice a year.

The help and support I received during the course from the tutoring team both over the phone and quick responses via email really made the difference for me as I am not the most academic individual. I can see why OriGym gets the reviews they do!
