WorldSkills UK Fitness Trainer Competition

worldskills.jpgRob Wilkie, SkillsActive Compliance and Standards Manager, recently acted as a judge for the heats of the WorldSkills UK Fitness Trainer Competition.  This competition, managed by Association of Colleges (AoC) Sport, is the only active leisure skills competition in the UK for students working towards careers in the sport and leisure industry, and is a great opportunity for students to showcase their skills in a competitive environment.

This particular heat was held at Queen Mary’s College, Basingstoke, and saw competitors perform in either the Gym Instructor or Personal Trainer categories.  Rob was a judge for the latter category and was impressed by the high standard and great potential he saw in the students.

The next stage in this competition are the national semi-finals which will be held at Loughborough University in July, with the national finals to be held at The Skills Show in November at the NEC Birmingham.
