Personal Training Position
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 put you to work in the fun and rewarding coaching position I have available.
Let me tell you about me, my company, and the coaching position.
My name is Ann-Marie Giglio and I own a private, by-appointment-only fitness and nutrition coaching company called CoreMatters, located in Roswell, Georgia. My studio is located in the Historic District on Canton Street.
CoreMatters is dedicated to helping people achieve their health and fitness goals through customized programs.
And business is booming!
I’m looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients.
We currently offer one-to-one customized nutrition and fitness programs, and private small group training programs. Everything we do educates, motivates, and supports our clients in their quest to improve their health and fitness. We specialize in personal attention and we focus on functional, movement training.
All clients begin with a 24+-week package, which includes nutrition counseling, exercise program design, nutritional supplements, regular fitness assessments, and once per month specialty workshops here at the studio.
If you are hired for this coaching position, you’ll begin coaching clients in the studio 2–4 days a week for 2–4 hours per day (a.m.or p.m. hours), Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and/or Friday.
My studio offers a casual, fun environment, great equipment—and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training studio.
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 my studio.
If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude And A Few Basic Fitness Skills, I Have A Fun And Fulfilling Personal Training Position Just For You!
Tasks You’ll Be Expected To Perform
Develop comprehensive health and fitness programs for clients. You’ll receive coaching and training on our CoreMatters 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, keep and 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 program to ensure the best results possible.
Perform fitness evaluations. Ideally, you’ll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you have it, that’s a bonus.
Coach clients through 24+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, you’ll coach and motivate them, and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress. If someone misses a session, you will follow-up and find out why.
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 and modifications according to client’s abilities. We always meet the client where the client is.
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. Outside resources must be approved by owner. We also spend time covering this in our weekly staff meetings, which you will be expected to attend.
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 can 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 studio 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 experience, but you should have a demonstrated working knowledge of health and fitness and possess a nationally recognized Personal Trainer certification. A group fitness certification is a bonus.
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 club, in-home trainer, etc.)
Basic nutrition knowledge
Again, thanks very much for your interest,
Ann-Marie Giglio, C.E.O. and Founder
P.S. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform well, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work. growing our business, and taking care of our clients.
As I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. I’m a very positive, upbeat business owner and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re a candidate. So submit your information today!
