There I was, a trainee fitness instructor back in the early 2000's, trying to learn using just my course manual and basic mock questions.
The thing is, I really struggled to learn and remember everything for my fitness exams.
The big problem was finding enough time plus figuring out what to learn from my vast course manual whilst having little to no support from my training provider.
That meant I felt I would fail, which made me feel like I would let everyone down - including myself. I had also borrowed money to do my course and I would be delaying getting started in my new career.
