Trisha Lindgren Success Story
Trisha Lindgren, AIPT Student
"The course content aligned with what I want to learn, and the flexibility of the online course made it possible for me to complete it."
Tell us a bit about yourself
My name is Trisha and I am a wife, mother and self-proclaimed fitness enthusiast! I enjoy trail running, hiking and circuit training and exploring fun ways to move my body!
What made you decide to pursue a career in fitness?
I have not always been this way, 2 years ago I was diagnosed clinically obese at risk of complications due to my condition. That combined with other events at the time motivated me to change my lifestyle and fall in love with the process.
The experience was so profound that I now want to learn, teach, inspire, motivate and share with others how it feels to be healthy.
I also want to be a part of their journeys. Hence, it is my mission to become a personal trainer!
Why did you choose to study with AIPT?
The course content aligned with what I wanted to learn, and the flexibility of the online course made it possible for me to complete it.
What are your plans for the future?
Short term, I want to gain as much experience as I can.
In the long run, I would like to have my own business, teaching trail running, hiking and circuit training from home as methods of keeping fit and healthy (and any other forms of exercise outside the box that encourages movement and makes exercise fun!) .
What would you say to people who are considering taking the leap into a career in fitness?
AIPT has opened doors for me which I never thought were possible. This has by far been the most rewarding career I have ever experienced.
If this is something you can’t stop thinking about, then it’s probably something worth going after. So just do it! You won’t regret it. I don’t.
