First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s our hope that you have precisely what we need in a fitness trainer, so we can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun and rewarding coaching position that is available.
So let me tell you a bit about us, the company and the coaching position.
We run a gym, fitness and nutrition coaching company called Sandown Sports in Esher, Surrey.
Our business is dedicated to helping women and men achieve their health and fitness goals, through customised nutrition and fitness programmes.
And business is booming!
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and energetic person to start training some of our current clients, and who would like to grow with our company.
We currently offer gym membership, classes, one-on-one personal training programmes, semi-private (maximum 3 clients) group coaching sessions and nutritional guidance, and within all of these we educate, motivate, and support men, women and teens to improve their health and fitness.
All clients begin with an initial coaching package which includes: nutrition counselling, exercise programme design, nutritional supplements, monthly fitness assessments and weekly training sessions here at the gym.
If you are hired you’ll begin coaching clients in our top class facility, alongside a fantastic team of trainers.
Bottom line: We are looking for a part time coach .
Part Time Role: You would be expected to be working between 24-32 hours per week. You will begin training our clients in a one to one and small group environment. You will be responsible for a set of clients and making sure they are successful on their journey.
You will go through a 90-day trial period, where we make sure you are the right fit for our team. Our gym offers a casual, fun environment, new training equipment and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training business.
As a team we like having fun and making money by providing highly valuable fitness services and products. You will be compensated well, treated fairly and we will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it. We want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others… because ultimately that’s what we do here!
Tasks You’ll Expected To Perform
Develop Comprehensive Health & Fitness Programmes For Clients: You’ll receive coaching and training on our fitness system and programmes, but you’ll have flexibility to incorporate your training style and knowledge.
Tracking Client Progress: In order to ensure a client’s success in our programmes, 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 health and fitness programme to ensure the best results possible.
Perform Fitness Evaluations: Ideally, you’ll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, bodyweight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate and various strength and flexibility tests.
Coach clients through 12-week programme: You’ll be responsible for weekly exercise sessions and keeping detailed weekly progress reports on the clients your working with. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her programme, you’ll coach and motivate clients and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress.
Demonstrate Proper Exercise Instruction: This is a big one. We 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 will empower them to lead healthy lives forever. You’ll be provided with educational tools and resources, will 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:
Health and Fitness Qualifications: You should have a REPs Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification. You do not need personal training experience, but you should have a working knowledge of health and fitness, and how to take clients through a programme.
Good Communication Skills: you will be talking with our clients, who are VERY important. 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. We will teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
People skills and personality – must LOVE working with people! As mentioned above you must be very comfortable working with people. This is an exciting gym and you must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
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 these are not mandatory).
Previous personal training experience (fitness studio, health club, in-home trainer, etc.)
Advanced nutrition knowledge
Exercise Science Degree
