Teressa Fisk Success Story
Teressa Fisk, AIPT Graduate
"Having a career in fitness doesn’t necessarily mean you are limited to a personal trainer. It means you can have a broader knowledge of our bodies and health, which then can translate into so many other avenues such as corporate health, disability support, aged care and even mental health."
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Teressa, I am a mum, freedom seeker and passionate holistic business coach to thriving health entrepreneurs.
What made you decide to pursue a career in fitness?
Fitness has always been a huge part of my upbringing. As kids, we were a part of Little Athletics and a lot of our younger years were devoted to our love of all sports. As I got older, my love of fitness turned into a passion and a tool that I often turn to while dealing with anxiety or depression in my life. After leaving my corporate job eight years ago, I finally made the decision to follow my heart and passion and delve into a new journey into the health and fitness industry. I studied holistic health coaching and Certificate IV in Fitness, which I combined to do transformational coaching with women who were looking to transform mind, body and soul. Today, I am using all my practical skills within the industry and in business to help health entrepreneurs around the world set up, manage and up-level their health businesses.
What course did you study? Which gym did you have your Face-to-Face practical assessments?
I completed the Certificate IV in Fitness, and I had my practical assessments at Jetts Coolum Beach (QLD).
Why did you choose to study with AIPT?
I had other friends in the fitness industry who had studied with AIPT, and the trainer that I wanted to work with was a registered trainer through them, so it was the perfect fit.
What are your plans for the future?
Currently, I am connecting with like-minded women in our 'Female Health Entrepreneur Collective'. My aim is for the space to be a large global community that encourages connection, collaboration and education for those who are ready to take what they learnt within their qualification and create a successful business with it.
What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?
Having a career in fitness doesn’t necessarily mean you are limited to a personal trainer. It means you can have a broader knowledge of our bodies and health, which then can translate into so many other avenues such as corporate health, disability support, aged care and even mental health. If it is something that you are passionate about, I highly recommend taking the leap.
