Working as a personal trainer: Kristeen's story

Meet Kristeen and find out about his career as a personal trainer helping people stay fit.

What is your job?

I am a personal trainer and I help motivate people to exercise and reach their fitness goals.

We've got kettlebells you swing about. We've got barbells that you lift over your head. We run on the treadmill. We do boxing so I let people punch me. We do lots of different things just to keep it fun for people.

Sometimes people's sweat gets onto me and that's quite yucky.

What inspired you?

I enjoyed sports at school. I played football and kept very, very active.

After I left school I became very inactive and became quite unhealthy. I thought I'm going to change. I joined a gym and I was inspired from then and I thought I want to help other people do the same.
