Kristian Boaitey studied Level 2 Gym Instructing.

Former student, Kristian Boaitey, started a career in fitness after previously working as a language teacher. He decided to pursue his passion just as the pandemic began. 💪 "Working in fitness has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me, and it all started with my decision to get my Level 2 Gym Instructing qualification at Stanmore College."

💼Kristian now works as a personal trainer and manages a gym in Central London. He wants to open his own gym and studio in the new few years aswell as launching a brand of fitness snacks and foods.

"The amount of support and encouragement provided by the tutors, particularly Georgia, is invaluable. Whether it’s a question of coursework or gaining experience working in actual gyms. Whether it’s a matter of being recognised for hard work or encouraged to go above and beyond. Stanmore College was essential in giving me the work ethic, enthusiasm and knowledge to succeed in the industry."


Khalid Osowoshile studied Level 3 Personal Training

“Throughout my time doing my personal trainer course at Stanmore College, it opened my eyes into an industry which helps with getting people fit and improving their physical health. Also I found the business side really creative and interesting. I learnt about how to promote yourself and make sure you stand out amongst other personal trainers.

Khalid now wants to make a living out of his passion for personal training.

“Thank you for everything this past year and I am extremely grateful for everything my teacher Georgia Lewis has done for me and it will stay with me for a long time”
