Gym manager, Riki Tanner, felt that there was a great demand across the board in BFG for more sporting activities and that is why he sourced the tutors.
He went through KBT, a training provider, and in conjunction with Everest Fitness Education set up the week of classes.
He said: “The course is for existing level 2 instructors and this week will offer them yet another qualification so that they can go back to their units and provide something different.
“Not only will it improve their ability but it will also inspire them with more ideas. They have had continual assessment plus feedback so that they can now go away and improve on those points.”
