Small Group Fitness Coach

Kinesi Coaching Studios
Job Description

We’re looking for that superstar that knows how to inspire people to commit to themselves through compliance toward exercise and nutrition.

Using our tools and your personal knowledge you’ll be committed to helping people become the best versions of themselves.

But here’s a little info on what we’re looking for...

The best trainers are fanatical self-studies and always learning new things. They are either outgoing and highly energetic, or passionately humble and convey a strong sense of empathy. Either way they are adept at connecting one-on-one or in groups making people feel comfortable enough to trust them and to to turn to them for support.

They will take pride in enriching someone else’s life and be genuinely committed to doing everything they can to help. (aka phone calls, emails, social media and text messages sometimes on a daily basis. Thinking outside the box and using creativity to encourage a smile and empower their clients to believe “I can.”)

The best coaches realize the real job is outside of the training session, it’s in the planning, learning, encouraging, and following up that inspires their clients to modify their behaviours in the other 23 hours a day! (HINT: The most successful coaches make their clients feel as though their coach is always available, but know that after an impression is established the client won't often need them unexpectedly.)

You will spend most of your time: Following up, communicating with them helping them believe in themselves, encouraging them, and most importantly reviewing their nutrition. You will guide them through the next simple steps in our resources and follow up frequently to ensure their compliance.

You will need to do so creatively and with a strong use of technology (texting, managing our private Facebook group) as you will be expected to manage a broad client base.

You will be someone who also continues to research and learn about health, fitness and how the body works. 

We are not looking for someone who constantly needs to be told what to do. 

We are looking for self starters; if you’re someone that needs a lot of hand holding and explanation this isn’t the place for you.

We are not looking for someone that doesn’t notice when people haven’t come for a while, or someone that believes people will follow through on their nutrition plans or working out without constant assurance.

We are looking for someone who knows how to motivate people and get them to commit. If you don’t have a track record of always getting what you want, or being able to easily make friends in any situation this probably isn’t the job for you. 

What you can expect? You live a long, healthy, happy life, surrounded by people who genuinely believe in you and may even have someone say, “you saved my life.” A fun, fast paced, challenging work environment (if you can’t handle a little chaos this is not the place for you), a great and very committed team who will always have your back, getting to come to work in comfortable clothing every single day. Compensation will be ample and is totally negotiable based on experience, bonuses available for top performers.

What skills do you need today?

  • A valid training certification.

  • Current CPR or within 30 days of being offered a position.

  • Either a valid nutritional education or certification (such as Precision Nutrition) or to be able to demonstrate to us that you have ample experience in coaching others nutritionally. (Prior experience at places like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, or previous client testimonials are all valid examples.)

  • To be feeling excited or curious right now after reading all of this.

Desired Skills and Experience

Realistically we can give you any education you need, but having one or more current certifications and any of the following will improve your credibility: 

  • Having long time personal fitness experience

  • Direct personal training or group fitness experience

  • Client testimonials

  • Hospitality experience

  • Coaching experience

  • Phys Ed or Kinesiology Diploma/Degree
