Meet our Trainer of the Month: Brady from PCYC Blackwater and PCYC Emerald
When did you join the PCYC Blackwater Team?
I have been a member of the PCYC Blackwater gym since I was 16 in 2013 and I started working here in November 2020. I also took on a second position at PCYC Emerald in May 2021.
Why did you become a trainer?
When I started training, I was quite overweight. Going to the gym not only enhanced my physical health, but also my mental health. I fully immersed myself into the world of health and fitness. Thankfully, the opportunity to study personal training came up while I was living in England. The way the course was delivered, my educator and my classmates really confirmed that this is what I wanted to do. I get just as much of a buzz seeing my clients/friends hit personal records as I do when I lift them myself! To know I’ve played a small part in someone’s fitness/life journey is a very rewarding feeling.
What are you training for personally at the moment?
The rugby union season is my focus at the moment. However, I am always in the gym simply for my physical and mental health and because I just love it. I am consistently trying to upgrade myself.
What is one word that describes you?
Passionate. I like to go all in with the things I enjoy or am interested in. My family (especially Mum) would say obsessed. 💪
