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 Felipe Neri Alvares who agreed to share his experience at BFY with us.
Felipe is a thoroughbred Goan, sports and the surf is what he has grown up with. And that’s why the beach and the sports field are his continual inspirations. With an athletic body, the Merchant Navy beckoned, but his love for business dwarfed the prestige that comes with being on the seas.
He has been an avid sportsperson right from his childhood. Basketball was his sport of choice since high school, although football was another sport he excelled at. He still plays competitive basketball in Goa.
Over the last 5 years, Felipe discovered a love for exercising at the gym – not to bulk up but to improve his fitness levels. Gradually, he began to develop an interest in the science of fitness, and ACE was his board of choice to gain an in-depth insight into everything related to fitness.
He says that he picked BFY because, BFY has earned a reputation across India as providing the most reliable affiliations and courses of study. “Well, it didn’t, thus, require me to think too much when I decided to do a course in fitness. BFY it was!” says Felipe.
He says, that he learned about physiology, anatomy, nutrition, specialized populations, exercise science & guidelines, exercise techniques, programme designing, gym management systems, etc. – everything one requires to be a well-informed and competent fitness trainer, from the program at BFY.
Felipe only had good things to say about the program and the faculty at BFY.
He says, “I really liked the good blend of theory and practical sessions, and the teaching methodology of the program at BFY. I gained a clearer understanding of the relationship between anatomy and exercise techniques and outcomes.”
“Also, I found the faculty at BFY to be extremely cooperative and professionals in their own field.” he adds.
Felipe currently has an electronics business and is 3 months away from opening the doors of his own fitness facility, in Goa. In the interim, he has been training people out of the sheer love of helping them progress in their weight loss, weight gain and fitness goals.”I’ve been successful with each of the 23 people I’ve guided – and it feels good!” says Felipe.
In the future, Felipe plans to to help make fitness, a way of life, with all sections of the society – children, adolescents, adults, expectant women, the elderly… just about everybody!
He urges the new comers to join the fitness industry. He says, “Do not compare yourself with your peers. Do not imitate the exercises that another person is doing. Each individual requires a set structure of exercises to meet his/her goal whilst appreciating his/her body composition and limitations.”
Further he adds, “For someone who wants to well in the fitness industry must have, real love and passion for fitness. The inner drive to excel! A questioning mind, along with, love for reading and updating one’s knowledge. Not to forget, perseverance and commitment!”
That said, we are very glad to be a part of the process that helps passionate and determined students like Felipe achieve their dreams and fitness goals. We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.
