Graduate of the Month
Lou Riley - February 2019
Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy
My life for the last 5 years has been pretty much dedicated to fitness & training including running events, martial arts, rock climbing, weightlifting, mountain biking and lots of gym work. Unfortunately this led to me developing patella tendonitis in both knees. I ended up spending 9 months in physio and during this time it made me realise that I would like a career where I could help people in similar positions, knowing how frustrating it is when you can't train due to injuries. I decided the quickest way to do this was to become a sports massage therapist, definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made!
How have you used your new qualification?
Since passing my level 3 in June 2018 I have started providing sports massage as part of my own business, Lou Riley Fitness. I am working out of CrossFit Tamworth, so getting plenty of customers in need of relieving tight muscles! I have also worked at a couple of outdoor events, Mud7 & The Reaper Run which were great experiences & I will be doing a few more this year. I went on to complete my level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage in November which really helped me understand injuries & dysfunctions in a lot more depth. Having my level 4 Sports Massage really compliments my level 4 Strength & Conditioning qualification because I am able to not only help fix the issue with sports massage but also use my S & C knowledge to help with exercises & movement patterns to provide a long term solution to the client's pain.
What did you think of the Level 4 Certificate in Sports Massage Therapy course you attended?
The Sports Massage Academy were absolutely amazing! I had Luke as my tutor for both level 3 & 4. Luke's knowledge & experience made each class very rewarding and I came away with a greater understanding of anatomy and physiology & there were no questions he could not answer. I also made some awesome friends during level 3 course, with 3 of them joining me on level 4 which was ace! I'm sure Luke was sick of us by the end hehe!
I had a lot of support from the Sports Massage Academy through the graduate group on Facebook & through email even after the courses are done, so you know you are getting quality help & support if you ever need it.

What would you say to anyone looking to train in Sports Massage Therapy?
My top tips for anyone entering the industry would be... Ask as many questions as you can, even if it seems stupid. Also, social networking & word of mouth go a very long way so make sure you provide your clients with a great service.
