Well I kind of fell into running this business (YBFIT Training) and I can certainly tell you it hasn’t come naturally and really was / is a case of learning on the job!

I took over YBFIT Training initially with someone else in August 2012. We were offered the chance to buy the business from the previous owner at the time due to her circumstances changing therefore not having the time and commitment for it any longer.

So somewhat naively we said yes! I mean what did I know about running a business!? Sweet FA that’s what…

So a steep learning curve began. To be honest looking back I’m happy with what I’ve done and what I’ve learnt along the way, as I now know all aspects and all areas of my business.

So if you get offered an opportunity this proves that you really can ‘say yes then work out how!’.
It can be done!

Like I say it really was a case of learning as you go. Don’t get me wrong, I knew my subject of how to train people, how to teach and assess people. I’d been a PT for many years, whilst tutoring and assessing at YBFIT Training for the previous owner, but the business side of it was a whole other kettle of fish!

So now, I do what I do to help people achieve their goal of working in the fitness industry, so they then can go on and help others also.

I do it because I can and I enjoy seeing people achieve what they set out to do. To be a part of that is so rewarding. There’s nothing better than seeing the look on someone’s face when they have been told they have passed an assessment or achieved their qualification pass. You can see it means so much to them and a lot of hard work goes into it. Every time it is the perfect reminder as to why I am here at YBFIT Training to see and help others achieve.
