Debbie Forsyth Personal Fitness Development Level 5

Debbie Forsyth was looking for a career change after working in retail for the best part of two decades. She had always had a passion for fitness so she decided to try and turn her passion into a career by applying to West Lothian College

Debbie is studying Personal Fitness Development Level 5 at West Lothian College and is loving the challenge.

“I was a bit worried because at 38 I thought that maybe the chance to study had passed me by. Thankfully it hasn’t and I am loving the course. I have met lots of lovely new people, I am improving my fitness levels and I am learning new things in the process in the hope that I will be able to turn my hobby into a career. 

I would say to anyone thinking about whether or not to apply for a course at West Lothian College to go for it, there is nothing to lose. Since coming to college I have found that old saying that you learn something every day to be completely true!” 

Debbie hopes to progress onto an HNC course before embarking on a career as either a personal trainer or a physiotherapist.
