Richards’s peers and students say he “stands out as being someone who over the last few years has had the courage to step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves both professionally and personally in order to raise the bar of their content and delivery style.”

They also add that “It is so refreshing to see the students engaged in high energy learning situations where they are an active part of their learning” and areas for development for Richard – “NONE that spring to mind – you are doing a wonderful job”. (

SIT delivers the Certificate in Personal Training and the National Certificate in Fitness (Group Fitness Instruction) (Level 3) at the Christchurch Campus in Hornby.
