FLM Training have teamed up with Everton in the Community, the official charity of Everton Football club, to provide a great new opportunity for former members of the armed forces.
14 former serving soldiers will be undertaking an FLM Training Gym Instructor Course.
The course is a fantastic way to take a first step into the fitness industry and can lead on to a personal trainer qualification upon completion.
Dave Floyd, director at FLM said, “We couldn’t be happier to help put on this course. When we were approached about this opportunity to help give something back to some of our forces we were only too happy to accept the offer.
“A career in the armed forces and one in the fitness industry require similar characteristics. Drive, determination and courage to name but a few so it makes sense that some of our past servicemen and women are looking to enter the fitness industry.”
Jonathan Garside, Mental Health Football Co-ordinator for Everton in the Community said, “As the People’s Club we want to do as much as we can to help members of the community in our city and surrounding area. We have a number of ex-forces personnel so to be able to help a group of them start a new career after serving our country is a great way for us to support them after serving our country.”
The Gym Instructor course will run from the 16th to the 20th of September with an assessment in early October.
