“If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude And A Few Basic Fitness Skills, I Have A $20/hr +, Fun And Fulfilling Strength and Fitness Training Position Just For You!”
Dear Prospective Fitness Trainer,
First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope you have precisely what I need in a fitness trainer so I can take this page down immediately, and put you to work in the fun and rewarding coaching position I have available.
You should have arrived here because you saw my employment ad or from word of mouth.
So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position.
My name is Michael Giaquinto and I run a strength and fitness coaching company called Active Body HF in Twin Rivers NJ.
My business is dedicated to helping women and men achieve their goals of getting brutally strong while still building as much lean muscle as possible by working on their nutrition and fitness programs.
And business is booming!
I'm looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients.
My Gym is located on at Tom Bryans Pro Fitness (Twin Rivers Plaza) in East Windsor .
I currently offer one-on-one customized nutrition and fitness programs, and semi-private coaching classes, which educate, motivate, and support men, women, and teens to get to their fitness goals.
All clients begin with an initial 12-week coaching package, which includes nutrition counseling, exercise program design, nutritional supplements, monthly fitness assessments, and weekly training sessions here at the gym.
If you are hired for this coaching position, you'll begin with an on-boarding process teaching you how to sell training packages to create long term success in our company. This process also includes what we do at Active Body for our clients fitness goals. We take pride in our clients programs because our goal is to always exceed their expectations when they walkthrough our door. You will begin your training on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until you create your own full time schedule.
Bottom line: You will be paid $20 dollars per hour for every new client we fill your schedule with, and have the opportunity to move up to $24 dollars (and go full-time) after we fill you with 21 sessions+. Our Gym offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment, and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training Gym.
Oh yeah, I’m also very fair, respectful, and appreciative. I like having fun and making money providing highly valuable fitness services and products. You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly, and I will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it. I want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others…because that’s what we do in our Facility.
Develop comprehensive fitness programs for clients. You’ll receive coaching and training on our fitness system and programs, but you’ll have the flexibility to incorporate your training style and knowledge.
Tracking client progress. To ensure a client's success in our programs, you'll need to track weekly progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets, and more on a weekly basis. It will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her fitness program to ensure the best results possible.
Perform fitness evaluations. Ideally, you'll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, body weight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that's a bonus.
Coach clients through 12-week program. You'll be responsible for weekly exercise sessions and keeping detailed weekly progress reports on the clients you’re working with. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her program, you'll coach and motivate them, and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress.
Demonstrate proper exercise instruction. This is a big one. I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e. muscles, movements, functions, etc.), and be able to provide appropriate exercises for client’s goals.
Provide ongoing health and fitness education. Our clients rely on us to service all of their health and fitness needs. It is your job as a fitness coach to provide your clients with health and fitness education on various topics that empower them to lead healthy lives forever. You'll be provided with educational tools and resources, be expected to study them, and speak about them with your clients. We also spend time covering this in our weekly staff meetings.
These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:
Good communication skills. You will be talking with my clients, who are VERY important to me. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone, and know how to conduct yourself professionally and deliver clear instructions to the clients. I’ll teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but I can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
People skills and personality. You must LOVE working with people! As mentioned above you must be very comfortable working with people. This is an exciting job and you must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
Health and fitness education. You do not need personal training certification right away, but you should be in the process of getting one or have an expired one for now.
If you have these additional skills, your resume will go right to the top of the stack (but if you don’t have these skills, you should still apply because they are not mandatory).
Previous personal training experience (fitness studio, health and fitness club, in-home trainer, etc.)
Basic nutrition knowledge
