03 August 2022

Janco Griesel is pursuing a dream of becoming a personal trainer' thanks to CQUniversity's Fitness qualifications.

Originally from South Africa' the 18-year-old is determined to turn his studies at CQU Mackay into a lifelong career as a personal trainer in the region' having now enrolled in a Certificate IV in Fitness after successfully completing a Certificate III.

"I've lived in Australia for eight years and I started getting into fitness at Northern Beaches State High School and found it very interesting'" Janco said.

"The start of my Certificate III was fairly easy going and although the theory part started to pile up after a few months' it wasn't too hard to manage with my other classes."

Janco was so happy with his Certificate III studies and outcomes that he has since enrolled in the Certificate IV.

"I have decided I want to pursue my fitness further'" he said.

"Fitness means a lot because it personally doesn't feel like work when I do it.

"I attend the gym every day and enjoy every second of it' so fitness is a big part of my life and career plan.

"I would like to work as a personal trainer and have my own gym and help motivate people to achieve healthy life goals."
