Visit from Joe Merry
On Monday 7th January, the BTEC Sport Level 3 upper students welcomed Personal Trainer Joe Merry of GingerJoetraining.com.
Joe is from Lewisham and now runs a successful personal trainer business particularly focusing on performance athletes. He is also has a strong social media following. The group are currently studying towards the exam Unit 22 Investigating business in the Sports and Active Leisure Industry.
Students were able to listen to how Joe has built his business and asked questions in relation to strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. Students need to research the personal training industry and this was a valuable opportunity to support their case studies. Huge thanks to Joe who lit up the room with his energy and passion for chasing your dream.
