Alyce Gibson Success Story
Alyce Gibson, AIPT Graduate
"If it is something you are interested in, then why not leap. Life is too short not to do something that you love!"
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Alyce, but everyone calls me Gibbo. If I am not at work, you will find me at The Gorilla Pit in Lambton, Newcastle. I absolutely love it! The workouts and the people are more like family, and not to mention I met my fiancé here!
What made you decide to pursue a career in fitness?
I have been going to the gym consistently for over four years, and I absolutely love it. I wanted to learn more about the movements I was doing and what muscles I was working on. I also wanted to help others love fitness as much as I do, which is why I decided to complete my Certificate IV in fitness.
What course did you study? Which gym did you have your Face-to-Face practical assessments?
I studied Certificate IV in fitness and was lucky enough to do my face to face practical at the Gorilla Pit. I was able to learn a number of new skills from Corey, my mentor.
Why did you choose to study with AIPT?
A few of my mates did their Certificates through AIPT, and I absolutely loved going through them. The fact that I could study it online also helped as I was working full-time.
What are your plans for the future?
I am eager to see where this next chapter takes me! Who knows where I will be in the next five years, but I look forward to finding out.
What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?
If it is something you are interested in, then why not leap. Life is too short not to do something that you love!
