Five Weeks Unitl Premier!

I can’t believe that it’s only five weeks away until I head off to Premier in Trowbridge, Wiltshire for 10 weeks to do my diploma in personal training.  I remember back in January when I put down my deposit (and weighing in at 282lbs (20st and 2 pounds) thinking that I had a life time to wait.

Now it’s nearly upon me! In the fat loss department I am happy with my progress so far, as for the muscle department I wish my gains were better than I have now, and finally the study department is going ok, I have completed all the pre-course (online) material and I am continuing to take 2 to 3 eClasses per week.

I think the heaviest thing on my mind at the moment about going is having to say good-bye to my wife and son for 10 weeks! :-(

Since my wife and I have been married we have only spent one night apart! My wife couldn’t sleep and my son was wondering where I was, and I didn’t sleep either :-(

I know that getting this diploma is so huge for my little family and I, and the time of separation will be well worth it; but it’s not going to be easy! :-(

But then thinking about being a qualified personal trainer by the end of 2010 is going to be an awesome achievement, if I do say so myself :-)

Great stuff!! You are an inspiration. Yep ten weeks is going to be a long time, but on the other hand as you say it’s all about the life change. Ten weeks is nothing compared to a 3 year sports science degree :)

I will (God willing) be moving to Devon in September and could make a detour to you to say hello. Let me know if they give you the weekends off :))

Hi Jonathan, I know I am going to love the 10 weeks, and they will prob fly passed for me; it’s just going to be difficult not being there for my wife and son.

I am pretty sure that I’ll have Saturday’s and Sunday’s off, that will be nice to meet up :-)

Take care,

OK will let you know. Might be fun (and inspiring) to visit the Tri UK store near Yeovil one weekend…
