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 that reads like this: Personal Trainer, $20/hr to start, excellent attitude, people person, growth/bonus opportunities

So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position. My name is Aaron Cobb and I run a fitness and nutrition coaching company called Grand Rapids Fitness in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My business is dedicated to helping men and women achieve their health and fitness goals through customized 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 studio is located on Broadmoor and 29th street across from Fox Honda.currently offer one-on-one customized nutrition and fitness programs, and nutrition counseling, which 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 counseling, exercise program design, nutritional supplements, monthly fitness assessments, and possible weekly training sessions here at the studio. If you are contracted for this coaching position, you’ll begin coaching clients in the studio.

Bottom line: you’ll start training a few clients per week at $20 per hour. You will be paid as an independent contractor, and have the opportunity to move up to $22 dollars (and go full-time) after a 90-day trial period. The trial period includes a 2 week “job shadow” period that is unpaid, testing and evaluation to ensure you are good fit for my clients. My studio offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment, and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training studio.

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 my studio.

Required Outcomes:

Develop comprehensive health and 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 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, 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 their initial 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. What’s at your core?
