NAME: Ryan Cadman
WORK TITLE: Health and Fitness Instructor
WHAT DOES YOUR WORK INVOLVE: Helping people find specific health and fitness goals, then helping them obtain them within the gym environment. Giving people plans that they can follow which are suited to their individual needs and goals.
HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR: Helping and seeing a close friend lose up to 6 stone and getting them much fitter. Also winning my Pro card in Bodybuilding by coming first as a Junior Bodybuilder.
SPECIAL WORK CHALLENGES: Trying to make people see that the gym isn’t that big and scary but how it can be a fun place to be. Also there’s no point in doing a workout in which you don’t enjoy, if you enjoy it you give it 100%.
FUTURE PLANS: To learn more about the fitness industry as it is forever changing, you can never know enough! Branch out my knowledge to more cardio based exercises rather than strength and conditioning.
BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA: Since I joined the team I was made very welcome and comfortable from the start. People are more than happy to help each other.
