Being passionate about fitness and living the fit lifestyle is an amazing accomplishment in itself. For some people, however, it’s just not enough! If you want to take that passion to the next level and help others live fit, you may consider becoming a personal trainer and turning what you love into a full-time career.
If you are planning to start a career in fitness, then this article is for you.
We recently spoke to BFY’s Student Akshay Kathula, who agreed to share his experience at BFY with us.
Akshay has always been a sports and fitness enthusiast. He has been actively involved in Athletics, Professional Dancing, Martial arts and Bodybuilding. All this inspired him to join the fitness industry. So he got himself enrolled for BFY’s ACSM – Personal Training Program.
He says that he picked BFY because it is one of the oldest and much recognised fitness institute in India. It has a lot of tie ups with courses that are recognised all over the world. So it wasn’t a hard choice to make.
Akshay learned about resources for the personal trainer, guidelines for exercise testing and prescription from the Program at BFY. It also included practical sessions.
He had only good things to say about the program and the faculty at BFY.
“I loved the fact that the courses was detailed. And they only moved forward with the class after all the students had their doubts cleared. This course has really helped me. Now I know where I was making mistakes and I got a new perspective about fitness, from this course” says Akshay.
“I also loved the faculty at BFY. They were quite approachable. They seemed experienced and they resolved the doubts of all the students” he adds.
Akshay is currently freelancing as a personal trainer and is also into Martial Arts. He has now gained some experience by working at a gym called Waves Gym in Mumbai. He trained a lot of models, actors, business persons, school and college students and even old aged clients. He was glad to help them achieve their fitness goals. His clients were quite happy with his performance.
He also plans to explore the field of fitness and plans to do more courses on functional training, nutrition, kickboxing, etc in the future.
Akshay wants to train people who are serious about fitness. He wants to be a fitness model. He wants to also be a personal trainer who can motivate and help people, live a fit and healthy life.
He urges the new comers to join the fitness industry. He says, “Make sure your foundation is strong. Gain as much knowledge as possible. Clarify all your doubts when you’re getting certified.”
“I think a person should be passionate about fitness, have good knowledge, be patient, punctual and have good communication skills to do well in the fitness industry” he adds
That said, we are very glad to be a part of the process that helps passionate and determined students like Akshay achieve their dreams and fitness goals. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
