‘I am really enjoying the fact I am learning so much and the practical nature of the course’

Sue Cornes has always had an interest in sport and used to ride horses when she was younger. More recently she prefers to go mountain biking or sail. Sue was a care assistant before a back injury put her out of work. Her son is representing GB in sailing and this has given her real motivation to get fit and healthy. She would love to go into a job in sport coaching to be able to encourage people to get fit and healthy.
