Communication skills I am able to communicate very well especially in a busy environement due to my experience in a spare parts department and fitness premises. This is shown clearly when there are people who are in distress or facing a problem which needs solving. I am a very good listener and in all these years coaching people from every social environment and age, I have become a point of reference to most of them, when they are facing troubled times. My strong point regarding the above is that I can effectively pin-point the problem and offer solutions. I have an innate ability to express myself on subjects of my knowledge and have no problem to teach/instruct content which I studied or acquired through experience in my profession.
Organisational / managerial skills Keeping the training facility in an effective and safe manner is a skill which I possess. I have also acquired through 12 years of experience working in gyms, how to set up and manage training equipment to cater for a large (40) group of people. I can supervise and train many people at the same time. My experience as a fitness coach enables me to manage all physical and mental aspects of athletes who train under my supervision. The ability to work under pressure due to deadlines and busy environments gives me an edge when coaching people for contests. Motivation and problem solving are two aspects which go hand in hand with my profession.
Job-related skills Some of my skills are: Management of a training facility: ▪ Supervision. ▪ Training. ▪ Nutrition advice. ▪ Point of sale and minor office work.
Fitness coach: ▪ Designing custom training routines. ▪ Contest preparation. ▪ Personal training in the gym. ▪ Designing and conducting training session for teams or individuals on the field. ▪ Long term planning and periodisation of team or individual athletes.
Sports Massage Therapist: ▪ Diagnosis of injuries/imbalances. ▪ Treatment of injuries/imbalances with various massage techniques. ▪ Pro-active strategies to keep clients away from injuries. ▪ Assessment and necessary correction of lifestyles/training methods to enhance and improve performance.
Technical Sales Representative: ▪ Management of an Automotive Spare Parts Sales department. ▪ Office work related.
