FITM Graduate- Sufiyan 
Sufiyan was an accountant who has a passion for fitness, particularly calisthenics, as it had helped him tremendously in dealing with depression, which was caused by work related stress. As his day job occupied most of his time, he did not have the time and energy to do what he loves, and eventually decided that it was not how he wanted to live his life.
From his experience of how fitness have helped him, particularly in overcoming his depression, Sufiyan wanted to reach out to other people, to generate awareness amongst them and to help them perform the exercises correctly. He eventually become a personal trainer at Fitness First and took his first step by taking up the “Personal Trainer Development program” (PTDP). What was beneficial to you throughout the Personal Trainer Development program? 
I was introduced to weightlifting.  Prior to this, I was doing calisthenics which is mainly bodyweight training.  I’ve also learned how to perform weightlifting exercises safely and with proper technique.  I can now proudly call myself a FITM and ACE Certified Personal Trainer and not a self-proclaimed professional.  Being a FITM and ACE Certified Trainer also allowed me to get access to career resources as well as education materials with scientifically established content.

How do you feel now working as a Personal Trainer? 
To me, being a Personal Trainer is more than just a job as I am doing it based on my passion.  I definitely feel blessed, because I’m doing what I love now, and I can teach the knowledge that I have to other people.  Aside from that, I’m also surrounded by like-minded people and by that I am referring to my colleagues at Fitness First whom I call my friends.🏋️‍♂️💪
