If you have enthusiasm, a positive attitude, people skills and a willingness to learn -
I have fun and fulfilling Personal Training position just for you.
Dear Prospective Fitness Trainer,
First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope you have what I need in a personal trainer. I want to put you to work in a fun and rewarding coaching position.
My name is Anton Lippis, and I'm the founder and owner of Xpress Personal Training (XPT) an exciting, boutique training studio in Adelaide's CBD (470 Pulteney Street).
We are currently looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic Personal Trainer / Gym Floor Instructor to join our Team.
We specialise in helping women and men in their 40s to 60s, get physically fit and mentally strong through exercise, education, accountability and creating good habits, so they can confidently embrace the next stage of their lives.
I'm looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our clients. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything. If you perform, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and taking care of our clients.
With all that said, as I mentioned earlier, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way.. I’m a very positive, upbeat business owner and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills required, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate.
If you're successful in this coaching position, you'll begin coaching clients in the studio at least 2 – 3 days a week for 2 - 3hours per day. The current shifts required are Mondays 6 - 8am,
5 - 7pm, Tuesdays 6 - 9am and Thursdays 6 - 8am. So there are at least 6 - 8 hours of training clients per week.
Unlike other gyms, you'll be paid as a casual employee with superannuation - not on contract and no rent to pay - and will have guaranteed hours. Your pay will vary from $20ph (gym floor trainer) to $30ph (personal trainer), and you'll have the opportunity to increase hours. XPT offers a relaxed and fun environment for people to train and the opportunity for you to learn about a successful personal training studio.
I am an honest, fair and respectful person who expects the same qualities from staff and clients. I also pride myself on providing a safe, non intimidating fitness service.
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 at XPT
It is essential that you have the following:
Certificate IV in Fitness ( minimum )
- CPR Certified
- Driver's License
- Be available to work Monday to Friday mornings 6-9am & nights 4:30-7pm
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.
Have experience with working with both women and men in their 40-60s. You must be able to relate to them and understand their challenges and goals.
Have an understanding of posture and postural correction, and be able to implement rehabilitation programs.
Tracking client progress. To ensure a client's success in our programs, you'll need to be able to track weekly progress, celebrate successes and overcome challenges. 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, heart rate, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that's a bonus.
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 (muscles, movements, functions), 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.
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. This is an exciting studio and you must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
