Craig Kitcherside

Personal Trainer

David Weir Leisure Centre

Everyone Active

Craig Kitcherside, 31, has been a PT for 14 years and has relished the opportunity for progression with Everyone Active.

“I started work at 17 in 2011 as an employed personal trainer,” he says. “I love working with people and going that extra mile to help them.

“Since joining Everyone Active as a personal trainer, I’ve taught a range of different classes and also done courses in PowerPlate, Bootcamp and Vipr.

“I’ve now been promoted to the GP Referral Scheme and train 15 clients on a regular basis – some with injuries and long-term health issues.

“Being able to bring them out of their shell and helping them feel better about themselves is an amazing part of the job.

"Seeing a guy with a knee injury able to play rugby again, or a 13-year old girl with right-sided hemiplegia build up her confidence and self-esteem, as well as her muscle tone is why I love being a PT.

“Everyone Active are always there to help you, and they offer a review every few months to talk about your aspirations and building your career.

“You have to be a certain type of person to be a PT – empathetic and able to deliver sessions tailored to the needs of individuals – especially the elderly, those with disabilities and GP referral clients.”
