Sarah has been operating as a Personal Trainer in our Cardiff Bay club for over 10 weeks now.
Last September she started an evening class to learn British Sign Language (BSL). She had always worked in hospitality and interacted with many deaf customers, and always wished she could communicate better. So when a friend told Sarah that she was starting the class, Sarah jumped on the chance.
Over the course of 6 months, she completed 3 exams and gained her Level 1 qualification in BSL. Sarah has every intention of continuing my learning up to Level 6.
Since starting in Simply Gym, Sarah’s ability to communicate in BSL and her understanding of deaf awareness has enabled her to help 3 deaf people sign up as members to the gym, and all 3 continue to train with her on a regular basis.
Sarah has had huge support on Facebook when she uploaded a video welcoming her first 2 deaf clients into The OnlineTrainingCommunity that she is a part of in the form of a BSL video, which has been viewed 100’s of times!
