Hi, my name is Donna-Marie Maxwell, and I am a mum of two. I have battled with weight all my life, and when I enlisted the help of a Personal Trainer to lose weight, it ignited a passion for fitness. With the help of my amazing Personal Trainer, I lost weight and became a healthier, fitter, stronger and much happier person. So I decided I wanted to help others achieve the same goals.
Prior to commencing my study with AIPT, I ran my own cleaning business but didn’t find it fulfilling. I was lost and wanted a change but didn’t know what I wanted until I found out about the AIPT courses. Then I was excited and couldn’t wait to get started.
I enrolled in the Complete Personal Trainer^Program, with its flexible study options, allowed me to fit study into my busy lifestyle. I needed to continue working while studying and with kids; my best option was an online course. I completed my practical assessments with Goodlife Health Clubs at Point Cook. I loved every minute of the course, gaining the knowledge and experience to a great career, and along the way met some great people.
I now work as a Personal Trainer at Anytime Fitness Point Cook and wouldn’t have it any other way. For the time in my life, I have found something I am really passionate about and feel I will be successful in. I am now doing a job I love, thanks to the help and support of my family and friends and staff at AIPT.
