We're Hiring!!

Personal Trainer: $19-22/hr.

Excellent attitude, people person, growth/bonus opportunities, part-time.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and caring person to start training some of our current clients. Our studio is located in Harwich, MA. We offer personal and small group fitness training to a loyal clientele, many in their 60's and 70's, who are dealing with the aches and pains of aging while trying to figure out how to maintain an active lifestyle.

Our studio offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment, and the opportunity to learn the inner workings of a successful personal training business. Performance is everything to us. If you perform, you will be rewarded. We want someone who truly enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others—because that’s what we do in our studio. If you take a real interest in doing great work and contributing to the growth of an awesome, inspiring business, then part-time could absolutely develop into a full-time position.

Required Skills:

  • Good communication skills: You will be talking with our clients, who are VERY important to us. You must be comfortable conversing in-person, on the phone, and through email—and know how to conduct yourself professionally, deliver clear instructions to clients, and take clear messages. We’ll teach you everything you need to say and do, but we 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, patience, compassion, and excitement while working with them.

  • Health and fitness education. You do not need personal training experience, but you should have a working knowledge of health and fitness. National certification and/or fitness-related degree required.

  • Thoughtfulness and organization. You to be able to think for yourself and be organized. We are very serious about this one. Robots need not apply. We are looking for someone who is interested in learning and growing with us and is excited about contributing to a team of passionate professionals.

 

  • Promptness. Our clients are paying a premium to be able to work with us. We do NOT tolerate lateness or excuses.

  • CPR/AED certified.

Bonus Skills:

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

  • Excellent writing ability. I provide ongoing fitness education to our clients through newsletters and emails. If you are able to write well in a fun, easy-to-understand, entertaining manner, you will definitely get priority treatment.

How to Apply:

I’m looking to hire the right person relatively quickly. If this job sounds good to you, then please send all three of the following to Pete@abetteryoufw.com:

  • A letter explaining why you are the perfect person to fill this position. Include full contact information (name, address, phone, email) on this cover letter.

  • At least 3 references with phone numbers and what your relationship is with the reference (i.e. previous employer, college professor, etc.)

  • Your resume

If we feel that you’re a good prospect, we’ll call you to set up a personal interview. The sooner we get your resume the better. We look forward to reviewing your info and hopefully meeting you personally!
