Carlos Figueira

I joined Bridport Leisure Centre in January 2012 as a Recreation Supervisor and very much enjoy the new challenges that the role provides.

Prior to joining Bridport Leisure Centre I graduated from Lusofona University, Portugal in Physical Education and Sports in 2006.  During my time at University I was involved in various sports including Rollerblading and Gymnastics.

Following University I joined Holmes Place in Sintra, Portugal as a Gym Personal Trainer before joining the Portugese Air Force at the end of 2006 as the Chief of Physical Aptitude and Sports.  I held this position until November 2011.

Sport has been a great part of my life particularly Football and Volleyball and I have recently rejoined Orienteering.  I consider myself to be an all rounder when it comes to sport and as yet I”ve not found a sport that I’m not keen to play.

In my free time I enjoy readying, playing Football, Volleyball and Beach Volleyball in the summer and socialising with friends.
