Jessica Lee

Olympic Track Cyclist

The Best Course Provider

Jessica is a track sprint cyclist specialising in the keirin and has represented her country at the Asian Games and recent 2020 Olympics. Jessica choose OriGym to study her Personal Training course and specialist Level 5 in Nutrition course after being recommended by friends.

From a sports background I have always been passionate about sport, for every elite athlete passing on knowledge and expertise is a good continuum from what I've already achieved. Although this is starting something new, it's also building on something that I already have. 

I reached out to friends who have done similar courses and OriGym was mentioned as the course to go to. After I enquired, Michelle called the next day and was really organic and genuine in our conversations, whereas other providers sent a generic email where I still had to do more research myself.

As an olympian a mission is to always pass on experience and knowledge. I'd look to eventually have my own company and client base to really pass on my passion and maybe even help create a new olympian in the future!

Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 3 Gym Instructor and Level 4 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.
