Mariana Van Rooyen Q&A
Why did you choose Trifocus Fitness Academy for your college?
Good day. I am Mariana van Rooyen. I chose Trifocus Fitness Academy for the following reasons:
- I asked around at my local gym and they recommended Trifocus Fitness Academy for the courses I wanted to complete.
- After that I did my research and found that Trifocus Fitness is South Africa’s preferred Health and Fitness Educational Academy.
- Trifocus has the most competitive prices in the market.
- Trifocus had all the different courses I wanted to complete.
- I find online learning as my preferred way of study.
- Trifocus has easy payment options.
- I loved the idea that I would be locally and internationally qualified.
What course did you complete?
I have been studying with Trifocus since 2016. I first did my Pilates Ball, Pilates Mat and Pilates Ball certificates with Trifocus. I finished my courses on the 6th of December 2016. Then in 2017 I started with my Personal Training Certificate and finished this course on the 3rd of August 2017. I am also still registered for my Personal Training Diploma which I am still busy with. Lastly I registered for my Kettlebell course. This I finished on the 12th of January 2018.
What did you enjoy best about this course?
I enjoyed all my courses very much. Kettlebells taught me how to exercise most of your body’s muscles by doing one exercise. Pilates Band taught me how to exercise my upper body without using weights. Pilates Mat exercises for me are fun and a way to exercise, but also to relax. Pilates Ball are so much fun. It strengthens your whole body’s muscles and I love the way it improves your flexibility. I enjoyed the following regarding my Personal Training certificate:
Concepts of Fitness, Nutrition, Fitness Testing and Design exercise programmes and how to include persons with disabilities. The rest of the course was also very knowledgeable.
How did you like the online learning material what parts of the online experience did you enjoy the most?
The online learning material were excellent. I enjoyed the fact that you could gain experience by all types of learning styles. You get auditory learning by watching the videos. They explain the course material to you in great detail. This makes it easier to understand the learning material. You get visual learning, because there are images that demonstrate the different muscles, bones, exercise, etc. You also get practical experience by completing your shadowing hours and combining your video.
Would you recommend Trifocus to your colleagues and why?
I would recommend Trifocus to my colleagues for the following reasons:
- Learning online is much easier in our busy lifestyles than trying to attend classes at a University.
- Trifocus has many different course to offer for different fitness disciplines. There are Aerobics for cardio and class sessions, Personal Training for one on one training, which includes weight training. Then there are Pilates and Yoga which are more calming and relaxing exercises.
- There are easy payment options.
How has becoming qualified with Trifocus improved your life style and wellness out look?
By becoming qualified I got employed by three different gyms; Slater Sasolburg, Planet Fitness Just Gym in Vanderbijlpark and Virgin Active in Vanderbijlpark. I gained a better self-image about my goals, because I made my dreams a reality. My lifestyle and wellness outlook changed. By learning the correct exercises and nutrition I gained more muscle mass and lost centimetres. Thank you Trifocus for changing my life.
