Member Journey




Let's get to know Connor at Carnegie Gym

What made you want to become a Gym Instructor?

I got into fitness through playing rugby, looking to be a better player. From there I found a passion for the fitness industry, beginning at college studying for my HND in Fitness, Health and Exercise before moving onto university to gain better knowledge. The opportunity to use and apply all this information, is what made me become a Gym Instructor.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The social side of the job, chatting to people learning about their experiences and why they are here. Using this information and being able to help people reach their exercise goal is the enjoyable part of the job.

What's the best gym related advice you've been given?

Results don’t happen overnight.

What's your favourite way to train and why?

My own training has a lot of variety to it, a lot of strength and functional fitness training, depending on the rugby season. My favourite way to train, is the Olympic lifts - Clean and Jerk, and the Snatch. I enjoy the complexity of these movements and find that they provide me a mental stimulation, as well as the physical stimulation.

What's your favourite motivational quote?

“Everything is hard before it is easy”



Let's get to know Stuart at Carnegie Gym 

What made you want to become a Gym Instructor?

After studying Psychology at University, I am very Interested in Mental Health and Fitness. I myself have struggled with anxiety and fitness has greatly helped. I want our customers to really enjoy fitness and I take great pleasure in seeing them improving their own sense of self and confidence in all aspects of life, this is what fitness achieves.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I believe this job is one of the most rewarding jobs, as I am helping every customer in some degree in becoming a better version of themselves. I am very sociable, so this is an ideal job for that, especially when I am so passionate about it…“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called Passion”.

What's the best gym related advice you've been given?

Everybody starts somewhere, and a lot of people feel anxious so don’t worry it will pass, and you will start to love it! Try not to compare yourself to anyone as everyone is on their own journey with different goals.

What's your favourite way to train and why?

I enjoy functional training and trying to make sure my body is in the best condition for everyday life. I also play golf which can be hard on the body with the aggressive movements, so I also like Strength training to make my body strong to prevent injury.

What's your favourite motivational quote?

“Comparison is the thief of joy.”

“It is never too late to be what you want to be.”
