Brodie Tinning – A young, driven and inspirational student at our Hobart Campus
We sat down with Brodie, a young, driven and inspirational student at our Hobart Campus in Tasmania. Like many people, Brodie has gone through some very challenging times in his life, and by studying here at FIT College – he’s hoping to work with clients from all walks of life to show them the power of being healthy and fit.
Brodie shares with our readers how you can turn a life-threatening event into something very positive and nothing but inspiring!
When I was in high school, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had chemotherapy which was unsuccessful in removing the cancer so I lost my leg as a result which led me to finding what worked to keep myself busy and motivated, which was lifting weights. After a lot of dramatic events in my life, I’ve turned things around, and I am motivated to compete in bodybuilding contests next year.
I want to work at a gym where I can help anybody that I can to start their journey of self-improvement.
Not sure about one word, but seeing what health and fitness did for me through challenging circumstances, definitely has something to do with it!
The gym has been a big part of my upbringing, and it’s something that has always been there for me. This career path gives me a chance to share that with other people, and see them become more confident, healthier and happier.
The Cert III and IV gives me experience in training others, theory to support what I’m doing and most importantly industry contacts to get my career going.
Learning the benefits and strategies for various types of training is what I’ve enjoyed the most and will take away from the course.
Dreams aren’t just something you should have at night. Go and live them!
