IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample AnswerWhen I was a child I became interested in kick boxing and took classes for two years. Through that I discovered that I really like physical activities and especially training and I’ve tried most types of training exercises such as weight training, TRX and Crossfit. I usually train all the time with just a rest day or maybe two every week but even when I don’t go to the gym I usually do something active even on a day off. Maybe I’ll go biking or hiking or swimming just for a change.
Over the years I’ve learned about many different exercises for building strength, stamina and flexibility for sports or physical activities both from instructors or coaches and by teaching myself through reading and watching videos about the subject.
Quite often people ask me for advice or ask me how they can do a particular exercise when they see me doing it in the gym or the park. They want to know how they can achieve it too. Usually they’re interested in the technique and how long it takes to be able to do a particularly difficult exercise.
It’s nice when people ask me for advice, even though I’m not a qualified trainer or anything like that, because it feels good to be able to motivate people to become better than they are at the moment. The interesting thing is I’ve had young people and old people ask me the same sorts of questions – age doesn’t really seem to matter which is good because doing exercise is important for your health for all ages.
Now, I’m considering maybe doing a course to become certified as a personal trainer or coach – I think I might like to do that next year.
