Tomas is a Personal Trainer/Sports Therapist at one of our gyms in North Yorkshire
What attracted you to your first job here? What did you do previously?
With a sports background I was interested in becoming a Personal Trainer so left my management position in Catering to qualify as a Personal Trainer. I joined Nuffield Health as a Newly Qualified PT in 2017.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I really enjoying helping people with their physical and mental health. I work with clients on their rehab, confidence, preparation for an event/competition, there’s a lot of variety!
Tell us about a typical day in your job?
Every day can be different, it could be I’m delivering 1:1 sessions, group classes, sports massage. I also deliver Health MOTs or just be available on the gym floor to answer questions and provide advice to members.
Do you have any key achievements that you’d like to share?
I’m proud that I have built up a wide range of clientele in the space of 18 months and am now fully qualified as Sport Masseur with the help of my General and Line Manager, and of course Nuffield Health, helping me to grow personally and professionally in the health industry.
For someone looking to be a Personal Trainer with Nuffield Health, do you have any advice or top tips?
My advice to any new personal trainers would be, don’t be afraid to interact with people and to be confident and persistent in whatever you do!
