When we are younger we have big dreams, whether it’s becoming an astronaut or a world famous dancer we have all had career ambitions.
Sometimes regardless of what we set out to do we don’t always achieve, this being said there are numerous options to learn later on and one is via The Training Room.
The Training Room provides a great service for people to become personal trainers and one of those modules is becoming a indoor cycling instructor.
I was given the opportunity to test out this part of the course alongside some of my other blogging friends. It was being hosted in London by one of The Training Room tutors with a full day of theory and practical activities.
The day began with the introductions and team interactions shortly before we vanished to the cycling studio. The tutor took us through a class to give us a fresh look at what we would be doing over the course of the day.
Having a go at an indoor cycling before we really got going, was a good way to provide ideas of how we could teach when we took our practical.
Once we finished the practical we went back to the classroom to start some team work and theory based activities.
The tuition was all very clear, useful and faultless. It was very easy to interact with the tutor and no question felt stupid.
After health, safety and theory we broke for lunch, returning to start our practical session. I was quite nervous to be honest as my confidence is sometimes a little problem, I may be confident in fitness abilities but not so much in teaching them.
As we went on teaching each other and going over required points to our assessor, my confidence started to grow.
We took it in turns to teach a cycling track in front of the tutor to be assessed. As all of us were nervous so made sure we encouraged each other – once we started doing this it actually made it lots of fun.
You’ll be thrilled to know I passed! Hurray!
Completing the course really made me realise that perhaps life isn’t set in stone. If you are stuck in an office doing a 9-5 job and feeling totally unmotivated… make a change!
Most of our days are spent in our jobs so why not doing something new and exciting. You might find you’d love your job….!!
The Training Room were fantastic and I’m almost tempted to look at doing the Personal Training course. Find out more here.
I am all about positive changes at the moment… make sure you have a look!
