Case Study

Liam completed his level 2 certificate in fitness instructing and level 3 certificate in personal training qualifications with KLT.

When Liam started studying with us, he was a chef at a local restaurant. We were able to work around his shift patterns to ensure he got the support he needed to complete his course.

Whilst studying for his level 3, Liam gained employment at his local sports centre gym, in which he oversees the youth gym. He has now started personal training- his first client being the person who was his case study throughout his course, who was so happy with the results, he’s decided to continue his fitness journey!

Liam hopes to use his experience in both fitness and catering to provide his clients with a complete lifestyle package to help them in reaching their goals.
