Fitness Coach/Personal Trainer Wanted for Developing & Coaching Women Focused Group Personal Training Sessions at Fox Fitness.
Apply Below IF…
You’re a Hard-Working, Self-Motivated, Customer Service Focused Person who Loves Fitness, Always Wants to Learn (and Share) More, Enjoys Working with Women, and Will Excel in an Entrepreneurial Environment.
My name is Becky Fox and I’m the owner of Fox Fitness. That’s me in the middle with a few of our members 🙂
For the past three years my business has been educating, motivating, and inspiring our Members to become the best version of themselves through our training, nutrition and lifestyle programs.
Over the last couple months we’ve had tremendous growth and it’s come time for us to bring on some additional help behind the scenes to get to the “next level.” It’s our goal to help thousands of Tampa area residents look, feel and perform their best. To do this, we need a strong supporting cast, which includes a SOLID Personal Trainer who is committed to helping our Members be successful. Quite frankly, we need someone who is a rock star coach (you need to bring the best out of people), have LOTS of energy, AND loves working with GROUPS.
As for certifications and previous experience… You don’t need to be a 12-year veteran trainer like me or have an alphabet soup of letters after your name if you’re a self-motivated person who loves to learn about fitness and all things training. I can develop your training skills (nationally recognized certification IS required). I can’t fix a lousy personality – you need to be great with people, especially a large group, and have lots of energy and excitement for training and helping others transform.
SO, ARE YOU OUR NEXT TEAM MEMBER?
WARNING: Working in an entrepreneurial environment is much different than working for a “regular” company – we often build the plane as we fly it. Creativity and flexibility are a must! In addition, we’re looking for someone with the following 12 Entrepreneurial Attitudes:
- Create Value
- Take Initiative
- Focus on Results
- Have an Ownership Attitude
- Be in Alignment
- Be a Partner
- Take Action
- Be Open
- Learn How to Handle Strong Emotions
- Have Patience and Compassion
- Don’t Give Up
Naturally, slackers will not be tolerated. However, you’re not measured by sales performance like most gyms, but instead by Member RETENTION and Member REVIEWS. Basically, if our Members like you and want to keep working out with us, you make more money. As for sales quotas and closeouts, they don’t exist. We also don’t pay on commission; you get an hourly rate and the opportunity to increase it along with bonuses – as the business grows you get rewarded.
We’re all about WIN-WIN-WIN (as we help more members, the company makes more money, and you get raises!).
If you are hired for this position you will follow a set schedule, and split shifts are a norm – we train people when they’re not at work (mornings and evenings), but that’s pretty standard in the industry. You will also have to work some (2-3) Saturday mornings each month for a few hours. We also don’t do Friday nights; you’re done by lunch time. 😉
Starting with part-time work and as we grow this could become a full-time position for the right person.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SOMEONE WHO IS JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SHORT-TERM OR WANTS TO OPEN HIS/HER OWN BUSINESS IN A YEAR OR TWO! WE’RE LOOKING FOR A DEDICATED TEAM MEMBER WITH A LONG-TERM VISION WHO WILL STRIVE FOR GROWTH/LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN OUR GROWING COMPANY…

We’ll teach you everything you need to say and do, but we can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
- Thoughtfulness and organization. We need you to be able to think for yourself and be organized. We are very serious about this one. We do NOT want a robot. We want someone who learns and grows with us.
