Adam Cannella Success Story
Adam Cannella, AIPT Graduate
"I liked the idea of going into a real gym and learning rather than sitting in a boring classroom. I liked that the course offered a mix of online and in-person learning."
Tell us a bit about yourself
I run my own personal training business (Adam – Movement Therapy) from my own home in Adelaide. I love the lifestyle of working from home and have no aspirations to open my own gym or work anywhere else. I help people like me (in my past) overcome injuries and issues and return to the gym and stay there.
What made you decide to pursue a career in fitness?
After working in call centres for many years, my past shoulder injuries caught up with me so much that the physical pain felt from sitting at a desk was just unbearable. So I decided to quit my job and pursue working in an industry I was actually passionate about and would help me overcome my injuries that were plaguing my whole life.
Many years later, I ended up getting over all my injuries and am stronger than I’ve ever been before, and I now help others to achieve the same results.
Why did you choose to study with AIPT?
I liked the idea of going into a real gym and learning rather than sitting in a boring classroom. I liked that the course offered a mix of online and in-person learning.
What are your plans for the future?
Grow my business (Adam – Movement Therapy) by increasing my face to face sessions, start my own YouTube channel and eventually launch an online course helping people with injury rehab from their own homes.
What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?
I’d say doing your cert 3 and 4 is a good start but know that you have be patient with finding a job or growing your own business in a gym. The learning never stops after your cert 3 and 4 finishes.
