Meet The Staff: Helen Halliwell
NAME: Helen Halliwell
WORK TITLE: Health and Fitness Instructor
WHAT DOES YOUR WORK INVOLVE: Providing people with individual plans to achieve their own specific goals and offering help and support along the way to make sure this is achieved. Offering energetic and enthusiastic classes for all abilities to allow people to enjoy group exercise and get the most out of their class.
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR: Seeing how exercise and fitness can not only change a person physically but mentally. Being able to be proud of so many people for what they have achieved in their life after starting their fitness journey.
SPECIAL WORK CHALLENGES: Trying to get people to realise that this is an individual journey as social media has made this industry and what it represents an impossible task. People’s goals can be unrealistic which leads to a lack of motivation and quitting. Don’t compare yourself to anyone but who you were yesterday.
FUTURE PLANS: To develop my knowledge on nutrition and mental health through exercise.
BEST THING ABOUT THE ARENA: Without a doubt the people I have the pleasure to work with and the members who always make me smile.
