PERSONAL TRAINING AND STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

This course was challenging at times as the standards set for both Sports Massage and Personal Training are extremely high. However, I found this to be a positive as it helped prepare me for both working in the industry and furthering my education in studying for an honours degree in Strength and Conditioning in St Marys University, UK
