Due to his passion and dedication to create better relationships between staff and clients that he portrayed so clearly, as an apprentice, Abbeycroft Leisure offered Philip full time employment. Philip is now a full time Gym Instructor who interacts with clients, delivers classes/group sessions, and helps people achieve their personal fitness goals. “I feel like I’m very well-liked by clients – they always want to come and have a chat with me, which I love!”
Philip’s apprenticeship journey however did not end with the success of becoming a full time Gym Instructor with a permanent contract. Once he completed his Level 2 Apprenticeship with YMCA Fit, which he had passed with fantastic grades, Philip decided to enrol onto a YMCA Fit Level 3 Personal Training Course, which he is still in the process of completing. Furthermore, progressing from an apprentice to a full time employee, Philip’s living situation improved – Philip eventually moved out of the youth hostel and is now living in a flat.
