Jasper Kiragga

  • Royal Marines Commando
  • Level 3 Advanced Fitness Academy

Jasper chose to study at Hopwood Hall College after friends spoke highly of their course experiences. He enrolled on a Level 1 Sports course and progressed onto Level 2 then 3 Sports courses, before realising his passion for fitness and gaining a Level 3 Advanced Fitness Academy qualification.

During his time at Hopwood Hall College, Jasper was a renowned member of the football academy and highlighted the academy’s European Tour of Holland as one of his favourite memories. He credits the support he received from tutors as instrumental in setting him on his current career path.

After leaving Hopwood Hall College with a number of qualifications, Jasper worked in the fitness industry before applying to be a Royal Marine. He now serves as a full time Royal Marine and also runs his own sessions as a personal trainer on a part-time basis.

“My mantra is aim to be better than yourself yesterday.

“Whilst studying I learnt that if you want to get somewhere in life, you have to do the work yourself. Your aspirations don’t just happen, they require hard work and application. If you sit there waiting for a miracle to happen, it won’t. You have to pursue your dreams without hesitation, if you don’t do it nobody will.”
