Karen Wilson Success Story

Karen Wilson, AIPT Graduate

"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. AIPT has been fantastic, SO supportive from start to finish!"

Tell us a bit about yourself

Hey, I'm Kaz, I'm 38, a wife and mum of 2 and live in Brisbane. 

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 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 had been contemplating for a while to do) to Study my Cert 4 in Fitness and turn my dream into a reality. 

Why did you choose to study with AIPT?

Throughout my health & fitness journey & 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, 2 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. 

What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?

PLEASE, if you have been thinking about doing something to better yourself and others… DO IT!! Cert 4 in Fitness will not only make you a great trainer, but it will also improve your own form and knowledge to better your own health and fitness goals. Good Luck :)
