Hi, I am Joel, and I am a product of what a healthier lifestyle can give you.
I had spent a number of years struggling with my weight and was close to 100kg (this is a lot for me). I would look at myself and get depressed and very much unmotivated to do anything. After some soul searching and support from friends, I made the necessary changes and put in a lot of hard work in the gym and nutritionally.
Reaching my goal weight of 80 kilograms really sparked a passion for fitness, and I really wanted to share this passion and give back to those in need, as I was once in need too. This passion for fitness and wanting to help others led me to become a qualified Personal Trainer.
After searching around for the best training package to start a career in fitness, I began my study journey with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers by studying the Certificate IV Fitness + Diploma of Business.
I credit AIPT for the help and support received throughout my studies, as well as for helping to build confidence in providing a service to those in need of a lifestyle change. I would definitely recommend others to AIPT. The content and materials are great and the support from the AIPT staff is amazing and very helpful. I wouldn’t have the skills and knowledge I have today if not for the great training and support provided by AIPT.
I have recently started my own personal training business, Pengo’s PT and Fitness in Gladstone, operating in a private studio after work hours. I seek to establish myself as a renowned fitness professional and move towards the operation of a full-time studio.
