Meet The Staff: Oliver Waugh-Swain

NAME: Oliver Waugh-Swain

AGE: 24

WORK TITLE: Fitness Instructor

WHAT DOES YOUR WORK INVOLVE: The role I have at the gym involves leading classes, taking individual sessions, planning a structured programme specific to the gym public’s needs/ goals. Other roles within the centre involve making sure to keep a high standard in the gym, from a cleaning aspect and maintenance level.

HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR: It would have to be the other role I work alongside being a Fitness Instructor, which is Head of Mini Tennis for Strength & Conditioning for Bolton Arena, a role which I feel extremely proud to be a part of in such a great facility. From a personal highlight, it would be completing the London Marathon at 20 years old, raising over £1400 for charity, and being part of such an inspiring event.

SPECIAL WORK CHALLENGESThe most common challenge I come across, is the understanding reality of how much hard work and dedication goes towards achieving a set goal. For example there is more to think about when setting a target of training for yourself. Key factors relating are, nutrition, sleep and lifestyle choices which play a big part in how quickly the goal soon becomes. But with managing this effectively and having a supportive network, there is opportunity to enjoy the journey, not just the finish line.

FUTURE PLANS: I am currently working towards my UKSCA Accreditation within Strength & Conditioning. My plans within the fitness sector are to improve my experience in a variety of areas, which can help towards assisting the general public in their chosen specific goals. I feel by attending CPD courses, and immersing myself in the ever evolving industry, it is vital to keep up to date with exercise prescription & improving coaching skills.

BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA: The facilities and upkeep play a big part in my involvement at the centre, the environment of staff throughout different departments also make it a friendly/ enjoyable workplace to be part of. I’m career driven, and the arena is no different, constantly evolving, finding ways to keep its high standard of facility.
