MEET: Ian Northcott – From the Army to kid’s games!

In Instructor Stories by Charlotte

Introducing Ian Northcott, our new Bromsgrove instructor. He’s been doing fantastic so far, so we had a quick catch up to find out a little more about him.

Why did you get into the Fitness Industry and what were you doing beforehand?

I was in the army from 16 up to 27 and then joined the police. I have always kept fit, and after retirement from the police, I knew I wanted to make a difference to people’s lives and I knew I could make fitness fun.

“I knew I wanted to make a difference to people’s lives”

Why did you choose to become a Rabble instructor amongst all the other fitness concepts?

I was looking for CPD and came across Rabble. Without a doubt,  my ethos of playing games and having fun is at the heart of Rabble. My ethos fits perfectly with the Rabble ethos.
