Karl Christie – Personal Training Tutor in Newcastle
10 February, 2012 | In: Tutors
My role as Assistant Tutor is to help with the delivery and smooth running of the course in order to help the students reach their potential. The course is intensive and at times can seem overwhelming so my job is to facilitate and guide you through this so you pass and leave the course confident in your knowledge and skills.
Health and fitness has always been a passion from a very early age. I used to run everywhere! I was always out playing sports and joined most of the school sports teams. As I grew older and wiser(?) I learned more about health and developed keen interests in all aspects of human performance, physiology, anatomy and the likes and, being keen to train, I learnt all I could to develop myself physically and I wanted to pass this knowledge to others who had a desire to learn and to become the best they can be. I love to feel healthy, look healthy and be healthy.
As I always trained in the gym environment I was keen to know more so all my studies have been tailored towards this subject area. I have a background in everything from fitness to strength & conditioning, sports injuries to nutrition to psychology and everything in-between. I continually expand my knowledge through courses, seminars and, being a bit of a bookworm, I love to read.
Being a Tutor to a group of individuals determined to make a good career within the fitness industry is both rewarding and challenging. Having ten+ years experience as a personal trainer the course allows me to pass on this knowledge, and it's great to see how effective and confident the students are when leaving the course. If you're determined to be the best The Training Room provides the best place to learn. It is an industry leader and that's why I'm happy to be on board.
The facilities at the Newcastle Academy are great, it is an awesome club with a great range of fitness equipment. If an aspiring personal trainer is motivated to live and breathe the lifestyle of our home (the gym!) then the door is open! step on in, you won't regret it.
I enjoy the Level 3 personal training aspect of the course as students begin to understand HOW to train someone effectively to help them reach their goals. This is where most of the interesting stuff happens! An intense 6-week steep learning curve that will be challenging yet extremely rewarding at the end. If you want to be the best, What are you waiting for?
