"It's been a fantastic day," commented Andrea Fitzgerald, Business Development Manager for the Fitness Academy.

"We offer courses ranging from level two gym instructor, right up to level three and four for those who want to continue their development. Our aim is to offer high quality courses, with more affordable costs."

The courses are intended for anyone who has an interest in fitness and want to complete a course in a matter of weeks rather than studying for a year.

"It's great to fund an organisation like this," said Jonquil Brooks, Principle at Swindon College "with the 2012 Olympics in sight, there is no better time to get young people inspired in fitness."

So whether you just have a general interest in wellbeing and fitness, or even thought of a career change involving your passion, the Fitness Academy may have a course for you.
