Fitness fantastic

Alana Meachem's studies helped her enter the exciting growing fitness industry.

"I enjoy making people feel good about themselves. I get to help clients be their best, from improving fitness to treating people with a disability. VU's practical training gave me the confidence I need in this industry. The teachers expect nothing short of perfection, so that's now my everyday standard.

I was worried leaving school early might be a disadvantage in reaching my dream career in fitness. But I made it, thanks to my VU TAFE studies, support from staff, and being able to work with real clients while I studied.

I now work as a supervisor at VU's Werribee Sport and Fitness Centre after working my way up from fitness instructor and personal trainer."
