Interviewee – Adam Lunn. Teaching Facilitator, Leeds City College (SPEAKING). Danielle. Student, Exercise Referral. (SPEAKING)

 

Music – A gentle synth melody plays.

 

Scenery –  A man in a light green long-sleeve top places a barbell collar on a green 10kg weight plate with white branding that reads “Jordan”. The camera cuts to a fair, pink-toned hand skimming across a row of black and silver dumbbells, before picking one up. The camera cuts to a pair of pale arms reaching towards a vertical medicine ball rack, and lifting a 12kg red medicine ball. The camera cuts to a pair of feet, showing up to the calves, standing with a kettlebell in between them. The right leg lifts over the kettlebell, and the person walks away. 

 

Music – A fresh, upbeat drum beat joins the melody for an upbeat-instrumental.

 

Scenery –  Cut to a learner pushing open a large grey fire door and entering a gym studio. She wears a black Adidas puffer coat, has brown hair in a low ponytail and a fair, peachy complexion. The camera flashes to the same learner removing her jacket, to show a muscle-fit, black t-shirt underneath. The camera cuts to the learner sitting on a black weight bench, reaching down to tie her shoe laces. The camera flashes to a close-up of her trainers, they are black with a metallic purple stripe down the middle and a bright pink logo on the tongue. The camera cuts to a hand gripping a black exercise bike handle as an out-of-focus body moves in a cycling motion. The camera cuts to a full-view of the learner pedalling an upright stationary bike as a man wearing a light green, long-sleeved top smiles and guides her as she pedals. A green box appears at the footer, with white text that reads “Adam Lunn. Teaching Facilitator / Leeds City College”.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn-My name’s Adam Lunn. I teach at Leeds City College on the Exercise Referral qualification…”

 

Scenery –  The camera flashes to Adam sitting parallel to a large glass sign with black text that reads “Gym”. Adam has short, light brown hair with shaved sides in a low fade and a side parting. The camera cuts to the learner looking forward determinedly as, with control, she performs a Lat Pull Down on a cable machine. 

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn –The modules that we cover on the Exercise Referral qualification are, understanding medical conditions and instructing exercise referral with exercise-referred clients…”

 

Scenery – The camera cuts to Adam in a gym environment. He speaks while looking down at a red medicine ball in his hands. The camera cuts to an over-the-shoulder view of Adam as he passes the medicine ball to the learner, who is slightly out of focus and facing the camera. The camera cuts back to Adam.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn –One of the key parts to the courses is actually understanding those medical conditions…” 

 

Scenery – The camera flashes to Adam holding a silver Asus laptop and looking at the screen while speaking to a learner who stands with her back to the camera. The camera flashes to a front-shot of the learner, who has red, round tortoiseshell glasses, wears a lime vest and has pale, freckled skin. She appears focused and nods in agreement. The camera cuts back to Adam. He speaks with a Yorkshire accent.

 

Music – The instrumental continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “That are gonna be referred to us as a-a personal trainer, or as an exercise referral professional…”

 

Scenery – The camera cuts to the learner with red glasses performing controlled Lat Pull Downs on a machine as Adam stands in the background, guiding her. The camera cuts back to Adam.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “And it’s all about understanding how to cope with those clients that have got those long-term conditions…”

 

Scenery – Cut to the learner with red glasses, as she performs a controlled cable pec fly on a cable machine. She breathes out as her hands touch together before releasing her arms back. The camera cuts to the learner from the beginning of the video. She sits in the same position as Adam, in front of the Gym sign and a green panel. A green box appears at the footer white white text that reads “Danielle. Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral”.

 

Music – Uplifting strings join the instrumental.

 

Speaker: Danielle – “The thing I like most about the course is training in the gym and getting to know each of our clients and how to professionally work with them more…” 

 

Scenery – Cut to Danielle, sitting on a seated weight bench in the weight section of the gym. She performs a slow and controlled dumbbell press while looking forward. The camera cuts to focus on the learner with red glasses, enthusiastically speaking to Danielle, who stands side-on to the camera. The camera swaps views, now focussed on Danielle, who stands listening intently and nodding with an eyebrow raised. The camera cuts to a close-up of the woman in red glasses, stepping on a treadmill and speaking as she begins to walk. The camera cuts back to Danielle.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Danielle – When you go out there in the real world, it shows you how you need to, like, evolve around each client. How you need to learn from the clients, and how you need to adapt from them.”

 

Scenery – Cut to a close-up of a hand adjusting the weight stack on a silver exercise machine by slotting a yellow bar into a weight labelled “25kg”. A bright orange warning sticker is in the top right corner. The camera cuts to Danielle performing a slow, controlled Lat Pull Down exercise on a Lat Pull Down machine as the woman with red glasses stands and observes. In the foreground and out of focus, Adam observes with his back to the camera. The camera cuts to Adam speaking animatedly to the camera.

 

Music – Feminine vocal samples add brightness to the instrumental.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “This course can lead on to a number of different opportunities, er, one which I actually took part in myself, is the Level 4 Cancer and Exercise Rehabilitation. So, that is, of course, a qualification that I’ve got underneath my belt…”

 

Scenery – Cut to a close-up of the learner’s hand gripping their left calf as they calf-stretch. In the background, the client joins the stretch. The camera cuts to a low angle of the client performing a deadlift with a barbell with green weight discs that read “10kg. Jordan”. The camera cuts back to Adam.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “Not just working for somebody who might be referred for, perhaps, obesity or hi-high blood pressure, but also working with clients with those longer-term conditions such as cancers and reha-rehabiliting clients back up to normal…”

 

Scenery – The camera flashes to a head-and-shoulder shot of Adam performing a kettlebell exercise and speaking. The camera cuts to a similar angle of the client performing the same exercise in front of a mirrored wall. The camera cuts back to Adam.

 

Music – The instrumental loops and continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “Other options include going on to Level 4, er, Strength and Conditioning – you know, that kind of thing, you know, it depends what your interest is, I guess…”

 

Scenery – Cut to a low-body shot of Adam performing deadlifts with a silver barbell with green weight discs on either end. Each weight disc reads “Jordan. 10 KG” in white text. In the foreground, there is a barbell rack showing height adjustment numbers 14, 13 and 12 on the left side. The camera cuts to a close-up portrait shot of Adam speaking animatedly and gesturing with his hands before turning to focus his attention on someone off-screen. The camera cuts to Daniella, sitting and adjusting her posture on an upright stationary bike while looking at its screen. The camera cuts to Danielle, with her right knee and hand resting on the head of a flat bench, as she performs a bent-over dumbbell row with her left arm. The camera cuts back to Adam as he speaks.

 

Music – The instrumental continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “You know, if you’re a personal trainer out there with a personal training qualification, it’s how you set yourself aside from somebody else, so how you, you know, can be the specialist. You know, people more and more now want to work with the specialist in ‘that’ area…”

 

Scenery – Cut to Adam, facing towards the camera and kneeling on a flat bench with his left leg on the floor. Using his left arm, he performs a bent-over dumbbell row and looks up. The camera cuts back to Adam as he speaks and gestures enthusiastically.

 

Music – The instrumental continues.

 

Speaker: Adam Lunn – “So if you’ve got an ambition of being that specialist on the gym floor, or want to be known, this is the right course for you.”

 

Music – The instrumental stops. A male vocal with heavy effects sings an uplifting melody. The lyrics are unintelligible. 

 

Scenery – Cut to a plain black screen before a white Leeds City College logo appears in the centre. Sudden bright green flashes transition to a bright green screen with a white logo in the centre that reads “School of Sport Science and Exercise. Leeds City College”. The logo fades to leave the green screen.

Music – The vocal fades to silence.
