As a Personal Trainer:

Tom Green has been in the Health and Fitness industry since 2008 either through work or study. He has always had a passion for sport, exercise and healthy eating. As a result started a Foundation Degree in Sport Performance and Personal Training in 2008, completing in 2010. This deepened his passion by increasing his knowledge and taught him the most effective ways to achieve both his own goals and those he trained. Starting a BSc in Exercise and Health Management in 2010 meant a more in depth studying experience in nutrition, physiology, psychology and exercise referral and rehabilitation. The bachelor  programme taught him the importance of a holistic training method involving nutritional, psychological as well as physical training techniques. Since completing the BSc in 2012 he has gone on to write a training programme specifically for those with learning disabilities. This has been shown to have improvements in balance, co-ordination, health status and quality of life.

Through studying his degree he has obtained membership to the Register of Exercise Professionals with REPS level 3 in Personal Training, Advance Fitness Instruction, GP Referral and Older Adults. This has lead to a variety of jobs in the industry from fitness instruction in a local gym to personal training in a prestigious spa and now freelance personal training.

As a SEN PE Teacher:

Using experience gained since 2010, knowledge obtained while studying his BSc and communication skills developed working 1 to 1 with clients with learning disability Tom has turned to teaching PE in SEN schools. Consulting in this area since February 2013 he has developed key skills in managing students with challenging behaviour, delivering fun and engaging lessons to students with varying abilities and an in-depth knowledge of the national curriculum. His passion for sport and knowledge of health and fitness translates to the students as while working in his first school he took poor participation in PE lessons to a weekly participation of over 95% across the entire school within 1 term.

Insured and registered through the Association for Physical Education he regularly attends CPD courses to ensure his understanding in the area is kept at it’s very best!
