Get You In Shape in Coppell, TX is looking to add a Group Personal Trainer to our Team.
Dear Prospective Fitness Trainer,
First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It's my hope that you have precisely what I need in a group personal trainer so I can take this page down immediately.
So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position.
My name is Brad Linder and I run a fitness and nutrition coaching company called Get You In Shape in the Coppell, TX.
Since 2006, our business has been educating, motivation and inspiring our Members to become the BEST versions of themselves through our training, nutrition and lifestyle programs. We currently service over 150 clients along with Onsite Fitness at various Corporations.
We have developed a track record for being on the of the best fitness companies in Texas (see our plug on the Doctors TV show here).
Beyond our Coppell Fitness program, we have an onsite Corporate Fitness Program which currently offers sessions to a few companies close to Coppell. If you are a good fit, you will also be counted on to help with our onsite corporate fitness sessions that are during the day (typically around lunchtime and early afternoon) and all either in Coppell or within a 10-25 drive from Coppell.
We've had tremendous growth in our business and it's come time for us to bring on some additional help to for our awesome team of trainers. It's our goal to help thousands of Coppell area residents look, feel and perform their best. To do this, we need a strong supporting cast, which includes more SOLID Personal Trainers who are committed to helping our Clients be successful. Quite frankly, we need "rock star" coaches (you need to bring the best out of people) who love working with people as well as can lead and coach GROUPS.
As for certifications and previous experience...
You don't need to be a 19-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. We can help develop your training skills to become an effective coach.
Do you have to be certified? You don't have to be certified to go through the training process if we feel you have all the tangibles needed to go through the training process. In order to complete the training and actually be a part of our personal training team, a nationally recognized certification IS needed. So it helps if you are already a certified personal trainer but we've helped the right individuals with the tools, training and systems to be great trainers.
We can't fix a lousy personality - you need to be great with people, especially with groups since everything we do is in group settings. If you are not confident leading and coaching a group of people through a workout then this position may not be right for you. There are a lot of great one-on-one trainers out there that do not have what it takes to be great at personal training in a Group environment.
I am looking for a hard working, enthusiastic, motivated and energetic personal who does well leading in group environments to join the Get You In Shape Team.
If you are selected after an interview process, you will go through our 45-90 day internship. This is a paid-training that will slowly indoctrinate you into how we run our fitness sessions and everything we do. Based on how quickly you learn the program and how you progress, we will then transition to you leading your own fitness sessions and joining the Get You In Shape team.
WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SOMEONE WHO IS JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SHORT-TERM! WE'RE LOOKING FOR DEDICATED TEAM MEMBERS WITH LONG-TERM VISION WHO WILL STRIVE FOR GROWTH/LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES.
How Would You Like To Be A Part Of Helping Encourage, Motivate, and Inspire a Group Of People??
We Are Looking For People Who Want TO Make A Difference!
Oh yeah, I am also very fair, respectful and appreciative. I like having fun and making money providing highly valuable fitness services and products. You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly and I will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it. I want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others because that is what Get You In Shape is all about. If you do not have a passion for fitness and do not liking helping people, this is NOT the job for you.
Tasks You Will Be Expected To Perform
*Have PASSION, ENTHUSIASM, great spirit, passion, zeal, and a commitment to help others reach their health and weight loss goals. People KNOW when you are passionate about something. We are looking for people that WANT to be a Group Personal Trainer because they ENJOY it not because of the money. If you are not passionate about helping others achieve their health and fitness goals, this will NOT be the job for you.
* Be a natural leader and confident leading a group of people through an exercises program. This is a Group Personal Training fitness program which means that you are leading individuals of various fitness levels and various personalities. We are looking for people that have certain skill sets to be able to lead a group fitness session. If you are not sure you can do this, it may not be the position you would want.
NOTE: As mentioned in earlier, if you are selected there is a 45-90 day training process so you will not be expected to jump right in and lead one of our group personal training sessions. We just want to make sure you know what is expected if/when we both feel you are ready. Ideally, you should know if you fit the qualities above or not. We just want you to know that we have a process you will go through before we expect you to lead at one of our fitness sessions.
Your Primary Objective
Educate, motivate and inspire our Clients to become the best version of themselves by leading OUTSTANDING group personal training sessions.

President and Chief Fitness Officer
P.S. - This is NOT a corporate type of structure job. We are entrepreneurial small business owners. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. You have to be highly engaged and truly care about the work you get to do.
We want nothing more than to find GREAT coaches who take real interest in doing GREAT work to make a GREAT impact on peoples' lives.
With all that said, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go long way in my book. As long as you have the basic skills I outlined above and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate!
P.P.S. - Time is of the essence here. We're preparing for more growth in the next few months and want to get our new coaches in place prior to that - If you are truly interested, MAKE SURE YOU APPLY RIGHT AWAY
