Jessica Brand Success Story
Jessica Brand, AIPT Graduate
"The gym became my place where I could put in my headphones and zone out. It’s my form of meditation!"
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Jess, and I am 19 years old. Anyone who knows me knows I am a crazy gym junkie. I’m one of those crazy people who is drinks pre-workout, eats protein bars and goes to the gym six times a week. And I spend a lot of money on activewear!
What made you decide to pursue a career in fitness?
I got into the gym when I was about 16. Throughout my teens, I had anxiety/depression, which was difficult to manage at times. The gym became my place where I could put in my headphones and zone out. It’s my form of meditation! I want to help other people get into the gym and achieve their fitness goals!
What course did you study? Which gym did you have your Face-to-Face practical assessments?
I studied the Complete Personal Trainer Program (Certificate IV in Fitness), and I completed my practical work at Snap Fitness, Horsham (VIC).
Why did you choose to study with AIPT?
The institute was recommended to me by a friend!
What are your plans for the future?
To have a successful career in the fitness industry. I would also like to compete in powerlifting and WBFF (a fitness modelling competition).
What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?
Just do it! If you don’t enjoy it, at least you’ll know!
