I worked as a management assistant for a real estate company. I used to run to fitness classes after work because it was my biggest passion. After I had my baby, I decided not to go back to my paperwork job and to professionally do what I love – sport.
I have a post-graduate degree in movement therapy, and prior to that I earned my fitness instructor and personal trainer certifications. However, I lacked the resources to open a business. I r egistered at the District Employment Office where I found out about the possibility of obtaining money to start my own business from the EU project. Getting through the maze of regulations was not easy. But it was so worth it because it gave me the opportunity to get to know the market and tailor my offering to what customers are looking for today. I used the mone y to buy equipment: benches, barbells, kettlebells, crates and medicine balls. I opened my business in August 2019 and I tr ain in my own workout room, which proved an excellent option during the pandemic. When the gyms were closed, I was able to work non-stop.
In my work, apart from the knowledge of movement therapy and biomechanics of movement, empathy is extremely important. The client must feel safe and know that the suggested forms of exercise will help them get back into shape. That’s why I approach training holistically - it’s not just diet and exercise that matters, but also sleep and recovery.
After two years, I can say that being self-employed gives you great independence. To be successful, it’s a good idea to find a niche where you can stand out. Then you definitely have a chance to conquer the market. And according to the sports maxim: you must not give up, but fight for yourself to the end!
