"I was previously studying architecture at another college, however after a short period of time I decided it wasn't the route I wanted to go down.
"Following this, my family asked what truly makes me happy. Taking the time out made me realise that a career in fitness was something I wanted to pursue.
"After looking for potential courses, I noticed Middlesbrough College were the only provider to offer a Certificate in Fitness Instructing
at the time.
"The one-year course was brilliant and got me on track to study Level 3 Personal Training
, which, again, taught me so much and really highlighted my passion for the field.
"Fast forward some time and I am now studying Fd Sports Therapy with Rehabilitation
"Thanks to the previous courses I've studied at the College I am already really familiar with a lot of the topics, however if we are ever stuck on certain subjects, the tutors are always on hand to answer any questions we may have - they are so supportive!
"We cover a good mix of practical and theory on the course which is beneficial for the next step; I'm going to go onto the BSc (Hons) Sports Therapy with Rehabilitation (Top-up)
after this and then hopefully move onto employment as a physiotherapist in a hospital.
"The course has definitely helped to prepare me for my future. As well as the tutors being so great, we also get a good amount of work experience offered to us through the course which looks great on our CVs!
I'd highly recommend coming to Middlesbrough College - I've been studying down the same corridor for three years so far and have loved it, so I think that says it all!
