Jen is the project coordinator on our Active Age programs.
"I come from a corporate background however I discovered the benefits of activity at a later date in life. This drove me to go back to study Sports and Fitness with the open university. An amazingly flexible way to study the learning materials where second to none, my passion for sports, fitness and fitness management left me striving to educate myself in this field as much as I possibly could. To contribute to my change of career I decided to complete my level two - four in personal training. The anatomy of the human body and the phycological changes activity can have on a person kept me locked into this mind-opening path of study. I spent two years as a class instructor and personal trainer prior to the first lockdown. This line of work makes it hard to find balance in your life as you are always on the go. After a lot of hard work both within my career and personal life I managed to find a nice balance. Now I have a handful of classes I instruct, I have a handful of online clients and I have the pleasure of working alongside the Fair Play team to implement positive changes to many different groups of people and their lives. I coordinate the Active Age program which you can find more about under the active age section of this website. Working with the over 65s at home and the elderly in the residential homes is the most rewarding role I have experienced to date in my Sports and fitness career. It has given me the opportunity to do exactly what I intended to do when I first applied my energy to changing my career, helping others. We are looking forward to expanding our Active Age programs and I am proud to be the person to offer these services to the residents of North and South Lanarkshire."
