Alanna finds family- work- life sweet spot

Alanna finally found the right balance, juggling motherhood, starting a personal training business and teaching fitness skills to kids.  

CVGT Employment first met Alanna when she joined the ParentsNext program at the Ringwood office.

Returning to work after becoming a parent

Wanting to explore a new career path after being a stay-at-home parent her Transition Support Coach Tameka helped set out a path to finding the right fit.

“She suffered some medical issues and was working on her recovery while still being very positive about the future,” Tameka says.

After exploring her options, Alanna wanted to continue her personal training career, possibly starting her own business.

Finding flexible work

Together they researched opportunities to upskill her fitness qualifications.

“She needed 12 course points to maintain her personal training accreditation.”

“Alanna was thrilled that we were able to support and pay for the courses she needed.”

It didn’t take long for Alanna to find the perfect job as a personal trainer, teaching fitness skills to children.

“Mini Monstars has been a fantastic employer for Alanna, giving her the opportunity to work during school hours while still building her personal training business and being a mum.”
