A day in the life of a Weight Lifting/Powerlifting Coach:

As a new coach, you’ll spend your day interacting with members on the gym floor and following up via email and phone as well as assisting clients who already have purchased sessions. Once you have your client base built, you will spend less time prospecting and more time focusing on referrals and renewals.
• If you are not on the floor interacting with members, you will be in a fitness consultation with new members supporting their fitness goals and showcasing the value of working with you.
• Once you are in a PT session, you will be providing a dynamic, fun, functional workout.
• Build your schedule to develop small groups to accommodate and help more members.
• Attend an in-house developed and provided continuing education course once a quarter.
• Attend monthly team meetings, an individual monthly goal setting meeting and weekly group meeting with your colleagues.

If you are so inclined, teaching a Group Fitness class or presenting a CEC course.

We are looking for committed, driven people who love to help people. Your personality will shine on the floor and people will naturally gravitate to you. You must hold a valid Personal Training Certificate, Personal Training Diploma, Bachelor of Kinesiology or Physical Literacy degree.

We thank all applicants but only those selected for an interview will be contacted. As noted above, please specify which club(s) you are applying for in your application.
