Marieke Schemkes Success Story

Student Success Story

Tell us a Bit About Yourself.

Hi, my name is Marieke, and I am an AIPT graduate.

Why did you Choose to Study With AIPT?

AIPT gave me the tools, knowledge, support and practical experience to help people change their lives to become more confident, stronger, happier and truly amazed by what their bodies and minds can achieve – everything.

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

I completed my Complete Personal Trainer^ Program with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainer. The Face-to-face On-Campus provided a comprehensive approach to all aspects of personal training through theoretical and practical components. The practical workshops and the ability to tap into the knowledge of experienced senior Personal Trainers and the Fitness or Campus Director from Goodlife Health Clubs Chermside supported my learning immensely and gave me the confidence to commit to a career in personal training.

What Made you Decide to Pursue a Career in Fitness?

I personally experience every day that exercise feels good; it makes you feel strong and powerful, gives you confidence, relieves stress and provides general health benefits. But I think a lot of people don’t have the knowledge, support and courage to change their status quo and, as such, believe it is easier to remain the same. I want to be there for those people who do not have the tools required to take matters into their own hands and help make them see that it is easier to eat healthily and exercise than to look in the mirror each day and not like what they see. That is what gives me more job satisfaction than I could have ever imagined.
