PT Diaries: The Grind Never Stops.

So I know it’s been a while since I posted about the journey to becoming a PT, but it’s also been a while since I posted on my blog in general. Life has taken over! As I discussed in the most recent post ‘I’ve been busy…’ I have started working at a health club near where I live as a Fitness Instructor (this means doing gym inductions, teaching classes and being on the gym floor interacting with the members and maintaining the gym). I’ve had the question so much over the past few months of ‘So what’s next’ as I’m sure a lot of other graduates have had and coming from 4 years of professional dance training, I understand it was expected that I’d come out of dance school and fall straight into a dance job.

I’ve been busy…

Wow, what a month. I haven’t published a blog post on here in over a month, the last post uploaded was the ‘It doesn’t feel real…‘ post and guess what, it still doesn’t. I find myself living in this post-graduation bubble in where I have barely any sense of routine, trying to be as social as I can to catch up with friends and family I haven’t seen or spoken to in a while and also settle back into living at home with my family.

It doesn’t feel real…

So I’ve finished. I’ve completed my BA Hons Degree, in a global pandemic. As many of you might know I have been studying a degree in Dance Performance at Addict Dance Academy in Leicester for the past 3 years, and it has now come to an end, but because of the pandemic and restrictions, it doesn’t feel real. We have finished filming our graduation virtual show that airs in July but aside from that, no ball dresses, no cap & gown, no holding the scroll and getting our photo taken. YET. Our dance school has been very fortunate to be able to keep going in these uncertain times and the amount of training I’ve managed to get in my final year despite being in a pandemic, has been impressive. It’s now nearing the date of me moving out of my Leicester flat and leaving my student life behind, and I can’t help but feel emotional and reflective of both the past 3 years at Addict and also the past 4 years I’ve lived in Leicester.

Small Business Shout-out Round-up!

Back in January 2021, I announced a series on my blog called ‘Small Business Shout-outs‘ in where I would dedicate a whole blog post to a small business who I feel deserve a shout-out and more recognition.

This post is going to be a round up of all the small businesses that took part in the series, so get reading!

Tips on going back to the gym!

The time has come! Tomorrow is the day! 12th April has been a date long awaited by near enough everyone in England as a date in where some of the COVID-19 restrictions get relaxed. The big one for a lot of fitness fanatics out there is that the gyms are allowed to re-open again! I decided to write this post off the back of an Instagram post I published over on @hannahkayfitness in where I gave a few reminders for those people who might be knocking down the door to their gym the minute it re-opens again.
