Learning Welsh boosts fitness trainer's business

Learning Welsh was a personal challenge which made business sense for
fitness instructor Ryan Condon.

Freelance trainer and semi-professional boxer Ryan learned the
language through a Welsh for Adults course at Cardiff University. The
27-year-old could see the commercial benefits in communicating with
Welsh- speaking clients in their own language and he has since been
reaping the rewards.

Since promoting himself as a bilingual fitness instructor, Ryan says
that his Welsh- speaking clients are more likely to stay with him
because they feel more comfortable communicating in Welsh.
