Karen Wilson Success Story

What Made you Decide to Pursue a Career in Fitness?

I have lost 54 Kilos in total through healthy eating & training six days a week. As a result, this completely changed my life & my family's life for the better & I am making it my mission to go out there and teach as many people as possible how to live a healthy, happy & fit life.

I also took a redundancy with work, and I just knew this was the universe's way of creating an opportunity for me in this world to make a difference in people's lives. So I called AIPT (which I had been contemplating for a while to do) to study for my Certificate IV in Fitness and turn my dream into a reality.

What Course did you Study? 

 Certificate IV in Fitness.

Why did you Choose to Study with AIPT?

Throughout my health & fitness journey and weight loss transformation, I would always see AIPT advertised in my gym/s at Goodlife Health Clubs. You know how you just get those signs to do something… Well AIPT was everywhere I looked. So I made the decision to call up and find out how much the course cost, how I could complete this - even if I was still working full time, with two kids, a busy lifestyle & we were moving back from the Gold Coast, and I still said Yes!!! Where there's a WILL there's a Way". AIPT has been fantastic. SO Supportive from start to finish! Thanks, Team :)

What are Your Plans for the Future?

My plan is to start up my own business. I will commence with Group Fitness and Personal Training to help many people reach their own life goals & get a chance to share their own stories. I will also be sharing my story & tips on how I lost my weight, got fit and found the ultimate happiness on a more public scale through motivational speaking, online, social media & interviews. I want to pay it forward in the hope that anyone watching will be able to make a change in their life for the better. To reduce obesity & mental illness in our country through health, happiness & fitness.
