Andy Collins from Tri4Fitness
My experience within the fitness industry started in 1995 and have continually developed my knowledge and skills ever since.
I am currently at Practitioner level with CIMSPA and Level 4 Reps with most recent qualifications in Level 4 Low back management, Level 4 BACPR Cardiac Rehab, Level 3 Education and training award, Level 3-4 GP referral and Pilates.
My day to day role is to run a successful personal training business, several classes and GP referral appointments at a local leisure centre.
After suffering a serious back injury in a car accident in 2001, I was very disappointed with the aftercare and treatment I received. I still wanted to return to the active lifestyle I had before the accident and was determined to create my own care package to help myself regain my fitness.
It consists of 2x week mobility, flexibility, core based Pilates, 2x week strength based training and 3x week cycling training which is my main passion leading to a 3 day cycling challenge in Italy this year.
Finally and most importantly I am a family man with a young son and nothing pleases me more than spend quality time with them which none of this would be possible if I did not look after my health.
My aim is to use my experience of injury rehabilitation and the effects on the person both Physical and Psychological to help others reduce pain and fulfil their potential in life.
