Dublin student excels

13th July * 2 min read

At Fitness HQ we have students completing our qualifications from all over the UK and Ireland. We recently had a student complete our Personal Trainer Qualification who was based in Dublin. Annemarie is a HR Partner within an International company. She decided to complete her personal training course with Fitness HQ mainly because of our flexible delivery model, our reputation and the expertise of our delivery staff.

Although Annemarie has a full time job she has been in to fitness, weight training, running marathons and general wellbeing through physical activity for the past 10 years. Annemarie decided to complete the diploma in personal training to improve her knowledge regarding various training methods, nutrition and overall human anatomy. Annemarie excelled in all areas of the course and passed all four theory exams which comprised of Anatomy and Physiology and Nutrition first time and with exceptionally high pass marks.

What’s next for Annemarie?

Once Annemarie receives her certificates she’s hoping to start local Bootcamps in Phoenix Park, Dublin as well as in other locations throughout the city. As well as this, Annemarie has a vast amount of experience in running marathons (including the Dublin Marathon) and weight training which combined with the new qualification will give her all the tools she needs to coach clients one to one and in small groups.

Although Annemarie is not looking for a career change, she will be developing an extra income of an evening and weekends doing what she loves and helping clients achieve their goals. Annemarie can expect to earn anywhere between €40.00 per hour up to possibly €200.00 an hour by delivering a mixture of one to one personal training and group sessions such as Bootcamps etc. We are confident that Annemarie will achieve this, if not exceed it; Dublin is a young and vibrant city where a large number of young professionals reside and often look for some kind of physical activity, training and/or personal training to keep fit and also to help improve their performance on the GAA pitch.
