Benefits Include

Hi my name is Lewis Quinn and I study sports at 21 Training.

“Walking in through the door you are buzzing to help people achieve their goals. I think it is one of the most motivational jobs out there. You are helping people change their lives and helping them achieve their goals. I don’t think there is a better job than that.

In the gym it is my job to motivate the clients, make sure they are ok and that they are able to do what I have planned for that session.

Training at 21 Training has been a great help to me, they have helped me achieve my goals and they have improved my confidence. The tutors have been great and they have taught me everything that I need to know. Lessons have been great.”
