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.

So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position.

My name is Lisa and I run a fitness and nutrition coaching company called Body Works in
Prescott, WI.

Body Works is dedicated to helping people learn how to live a healthy lifestyle while still having fun!

I’m looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients.

My studio is located at 1380 North Acres Rd Prescott WI 54021.

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.), be able to provide appropriate exercises for client’s goals and know 3 progressions and 3 regressions for each exercise you are giving your clients.

Required Skills

These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:

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.

P.S. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform, you will be rewarded.
