Greg Waddell Success Story

Student Success Story

Tell us a Bit About Yourself.

Hi, my name is Greg, and I'm a happily married Dad with a career in banking who has always loved team sports energy.

Greg Waddell Success Story

What Made you Decide to Pursue a Career in Fitness?

After having kids and hitting 40, I struggled to lead the healthy lifestyle I once took for granted. As I got older, my health took a negative hit, and I set the goal of getting healthy. After trialling and failing to achieve my goal through a number of different programs, I thought I should learn more about fitness and take on the challenge of helping others achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle.

What Course did you Study? Which Gym did you Have your Face-to-Face Practical Assessments?

I completed Certificate III and IV through AIPT at HIIT45, a great independent gym in Perth.

Why did you Choose to Study with AIPT?

An approachable learning style that I could fit with my family and career priorities.

What are your Plans for the Future?

I'm running a super fun group training sesh on the beach once a week and am keen to partner with people who are looking to make significant transformations to their health. I love team sports and try to bring that same team energy to my training.

What Would you say to People who are Considering Taking the Leap Into a Career in Fitness?

Don't wait till your 40 like me! Making a positive impact on people's physical and mental health in your community is a rewarding experience. The people in our industry will help, like the owner of my favourite gym in Perth, HIIT45, who mentored me through the program. Go for it!
