1. Tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Paul McPhee, I’m 26 years old, and I’m a Gym Manager with NL Leisure.
2. How long have you worked with NL Leisure for?
I have worked for NL Leisure for over 6 years now, having started in 2011. I started off as a gym instructor, doing casual shifts on the side as I had another full time job. I then applied for a full time position with NL Leisure, and was delighted to land the job. I was originally based in our Broadwood facility, where I was positioned for around two years. I then took a step into management, which has progressed into my current role.
3. Tell us about your new role?
At present I’m a gym manager and I’m fairly new to the job - having been in the role for only a little over 18 weeks now! I oversee anything health and fitness related to our Sir Matt Busby (Bellshill) and Aquatec (Motherwell) facilities. I really enjoy my job as it has allowed me to further my career within NL Leisure. Having previous gym instructor experience has been a huge help for me in my new role. For example, it makes managing my teams a lot easier as I know about the day to day challenges they may face.
4. What do you like to get up to in your spare time?
In my spare time I like to spend as much time as I can with my family. I have a 12 week old son, Lucas, who of course gets all my attention when I’m not working! I’m still a kid at heart myself and enjoy playing computer games whenever I can, which admittedly is quite rare these days but I take what I can!
