Amy Simpson

Amy Simpson has really hit the ground running after completing her Personal Training course at Middlesbrough College, having built up her own business, and opening her own 2,000sq ft fitness venue in a prime high street location.

The 18 year old from Normanby has built up her own personal client base for fitness and food plans over the past six months, run local community fitness classes in her former school, Nunthorpe Academy, and led health and well-being classes for her former teachers there. Now Amy has taken over large premises in Normanby High Street so her clients can come to her.

She said: “I can’t believe how much the business has taken off. The phone is really busy and people are popping in off the street, which is a great feeling.

“One of the units in my course was about business, and that gave me the knowledge to take the next steps.”
I couldn’t have done it all without the experience at Middlesbrough College behind me. My tutors have really encouraged me, and it was working with them that gave me the inspiration to go for it.
