Exercise Science and Sports Nutrition
Why did you choose Trifocus Fitness Academy as your college?
I am Russian, I came to South Africa in 2012. For the first couple of years I was depressed and confused because everything was different. In Russia I studied languages but never really pictured myself being a translator. I always enjoyed PE classes at school, so I decided that I wanted to become a fitness instructor.
I googled fitness courses and found Trifocus Fitness Academy’s website. It was user-friendly, well-advertised, and I really liked the idea of doing a correspondence course. Courses are accredited so I trust the quality. Plus there is a good student support team.
What course did you complete?
I enrolled for the Exercise Science and Sports Nutrition course and completed in 2016.
What did you enjoy most about this course?
The best thing was definitely flexibility of studying and your student support team, because even though I studied English in Russia, it was still a bit difficult for me to study material in English and it did take me long time to complete the course. I had to go through translations all the time. But it made me more confident to talk to people about fitness after I studied theory in English. So thank you.
Would you recommend Trifocus to your colleagues, and why?
I would definitely recommend Trifocus to people I know because I had a good experience. I did a correspondence course, but I’m more than sure that the online courses are just as good, if not better.
I think it’s very important to make education as easy and friendly as possible, considering that a lot of people who want to start this journey are busy with jobs, families and other things. So yes, because of flexibility of studying, competitive prices, good student support team, and accreditation I would recommend Trifocus. And I like the idea of studying online.
How has becoming qualified with Trifocus improved your Lifestyle and Wellness outlook?
I think the most important thing is that I became more confident. People actually talk a lot about a healthy lifestyle, and learning about fitness and nutrition really helped me to support a good conversation. Plus I apply everything I’ve learnt for myself.
It was very important for me to learn how to eat healthy. I used to eat junk food a lot in my past. And to be honest, I used to smoke. But when you become qualified in the fitness industry, you simply can’t support bad habits anymore. And all your friends know that you are into health and fitness so you have to support your image. Not even mentioning how badly smoking affects cardio. So yes, becoming qualified with Trifocus definitely improved my lifestyle as well as my image.
