Introducing Matt Fraser – Level 2 Personal Training student

Hello. My name is Matthew Fraser. I am 16 years old and I am from Belper, a small town in Derbyshire. I’m currently studying the Level 2 Diploma in Personal Training and hope to continue on to the Level 3 next year. My main goal for the future is to be a successful personal trainer, with my own business and clothing brand. 

I currently live on-site at the college in one of the under 18s boys hall called ‘Cotton’. I have settled in well. It’s quite strange to live away from home but the freedom is really beneficial as it teaches you to be more independent. I spend a lot of my free time in the evenings at R’Club (the Bar), in the Common Room or the gym, and I always go to the socials that are hosted by the Student Association every Thursday night. 

On my course we have been learning about customer care, anatomy and physiology and how to introduce yourself to a client. I particularly enjoyed the induction sessions where we ran a fitness session for other students on Adventure Sports, Public Services and other classes in Sport.

I am going to be sharing my experiences at Reaseheath College with you all over the next few months and will be back soon with my next update.
