A fitness fanatic is celebrating securing a job after completing a work placement.

TyneMet College student Anna Waters has secured employment at local fitness centre Crazy4Fitness after being certified a personal trainer following her work placement.

The 19-year-old from Wallsend, a champion figure skater who has represented her country, embarked upon a Level 3 Fitness Course.

Crazy4Fitness founder Christina Francotte said: “Crazy4Fitness has now been running for three years.

“The talent, determination and drive in Anna is something you don’t find every day, she’s an excellent example of how hard work can pay off. We are delighted to welcome Anna to the team. I’ve been impressed with TyneMet and Anna.”

“It’s been a great experience for us because you gain new skills and I really value Anna’s input.”

Anna said: “The work placement I experienced as part of my course with TyneMet has been very beneficial to my career, I’ve learnt so much from Christina and the rest of the team. A placement means you get to learn on the job, every day is different and there’s always something new to learn. I chose to study with TyneMet because the course offered real industry experience and the chance to qualify with a employer recognised qualification. I’m really excited to be working at Crazy4Fitness and start instructing my own sessions, it’s a fantastic feeling when you see clients achieving their fitness results.”
