A career helping others improve their quality of life
Completing my Certificate III in Fitness has ignited my interest and passion towards the fitness industry. The personalised support, training and advice that I received from my teachers, made me learn a lot about myself and what impact I would like my job within the community to have. I found that my healthy, yet compassionate nature shared an appreciation for assisting those who are often seen to be neglected by the fitness industry. Working with the elderly and physically disadvantaged to help them reach their fitness goals and improve their quality of life is a career pathway I am proud to be contributing to.
A thank you to all our amazing students. We are so glad you enjoyed your time with TAFE Queensland Gold Coast.
