Leave The Corporate World For A Happier Life
Trina Elkington was working as a senior management consultant that required time away from home and a high stress level. Deterioration of her health forced Trina to think about her career and Premier Trianing International had the solution.
Having spent nearly 20 years cooped up in an office, Trina yearned to be outside in a more active and rewarding job and made the decision to become a personal trainer. At the age of 42, Trina enrolled on Premier Training International’
"I was spending more and more time away from home and the long hours meant my health was deteriorating - I knew it was time to do something about it. I’ve always been a keen runner and enjoy aerobics and keeping fit, so I made the decision to turn this interest in to a career; a daunting decision to make but I’d researched it thoroughly and knew I wanted to make a go of it."
Since graduating, Trina has gone on to set up a successful personal training business in Leeds, Fit and Thin (www.fitandthin.org)
"I wanted to help people who were in a similar position to me; people who lead busy lives who don’t have long to dedicate to exercise but hate going to the gym. I’ve got a private studio for my clients, but a lot of my training takes place outside, so at the local park, or in clients’ gardens."
As well as the personal training business, Trina also runs Zumba classes and a very popular over-40’s circuit class.
"Deciding to re-train was the best decision I ever made. Premier has a great reputation within the industry and is used to training a wide breadth of people of all ages and stages of life. I’m still in touch with the people I trained with; this added support network has been really useful"
