The Person

 

You will possess the following personal attributes, qualifications and experience:

Personal Attributes

A customer obsessed approach is paramount.  We don't want people who just want to earn a few bucks and go through the motions.  We want people who want to help others make their Personal Training Career a reality.

An extra-mile mindset is vital.  Students need to know you are there for them, that you want them to succeed, and that you'll challenge them to be ready, willing and able at graduation. That takes dedication and also brings great satisfaction. We don't want people who will back away when it's time to lean in.

You must have walked the walk.  We pride ourselves on preparing students for the real-world of Personal Training and to do that, we only work with people who have been there, done it, and have an open mind to learning more.

Qualifications and skills

  • A recognised qualification in personal training at Level 4 and above
  • Attention to detail and the ability to follow systems consistently to maintain equity, quality and professionalism
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Be an intermediate level computer user familiar with web based software and systems

Experience

  • A history of successful, self-employment as a personal trainer with ideally at least 2 years experience
  • Evidence of an ongoing commitment to your own professional development and the possibilities that come with life-long learning
