    Guy Thompson

    Former Leicester & Wasps Rugby Player

    “After being in and around professional sport for 13 years, this is a natural progression after learning from World Leading S&C coaches. Becoming a personal trainer will allow me to implement this knowledge for helping people and helping people achieve their goals away from sport. I’d really want to focus on helping people in their everyday lives through both mental and physical wellbeing. OriGym’s tutors have been excellent, with great feedback and the content is perfect for someone looking to get started in the industry.”

  • Dafydd James

    Dafydd James

    Former British & Irish Lions Rugby Player

    “After researching online and looking at various courses, I was happy to choose a recognised Nutrition qualification which is what OriGym offers. It was important for me to see a lot of positive reviews, as well as the course content looked thorough and in depth. I chose this course to add another dimension and skillset to my business. If I can utilise the framework provided by OriGym, I will be able to develop a successful business and educate anyone from the general public to professional athletes.”

    “Although this is starting something new, it’s also building on something that I already have.I reached out to friends who have done similar courses and OriGym was mentioned as the course to go to. After I enquired, Michelle called the next day and was really organic and genuine in our conversations, whereas other providers sent a generic email where I still had to do more research myself. As an olympian a mission is to always pass on experience and knowledge. I’d look to eventually have my own company to really pass on my passion and maybe even help create a new olympian in the future!”
