I was a 55+ woman who was struggling to find work. As i loved to train myself I decided to complete a course in health and fitness. The team at the College of Health and Fitness were marvelous. Any questions I asked they were happy to answer. I have to thank Bridgett Cooke for her fabulous teaching skills and the ability to make me feel comfortable in a class of people who were a whole lot younger than me. I am proud to say I passed with flying colours and I am now employed in a gym doing what I love. I would recommend the College to anyone who wants to get into the fitness field.
