Trainee Profiles

‘With the support of He Waka Tapu and Skills Active, I graduated in 2008 with the National Certificate in Group Fitness. Achieving this while working full time as a Whanau Worker for He Waka Tapu has been very rewarding. I am now a Health Promoter for He Waka Tapu co-ordinating physical activity classes and healthy eating within the community. Big thanks to Skills Active for their support and training and He Waka Tapu for the opportunities to upskill and pursue a career I am very passionate about’.

‘Skills Active has been fantastic in supporting me to gain my National Certificate in Group Fitness. It has broadened my self esteem and knowledge of a healthy lifestyle. My passion is to support people of all ages to get fit and eat healthy especially our Mäori community. On a personal level I have become more motivated in physical activity and have lost 7kg. Thank you to He Waka Tapu for their support to run a gentle exercise class for kaumatoa in the community. All this has been achieved through Skills Active and He Waka Tapu’.
