We firmly believe that your focus should be 100% on doing what you love -- teaching awesome classes! There is no commission and there are no sales responsibilities. You don't have to post excessively on social media, force relationships, or "fake" anything. We want you to have fun, be real, and focus on your passion for helping our members.
We offer highly competitive training rates with opportunities for regular raises as you grow with us and as you expand your expertise. We believe that, if we take awesome care of our trainers, YOU will take awesome care of our members. You don't have to worry about commissions, sales bonuses, or attendance numbers -- they won't affect your pay! Plus every trainer gets a FREE Girl Fight membership and qualifies for reimbursement funds towards your fitness certifications and continuing education each year.
We do not have a typical "gym" environment with un-invested, drop-in-style class participants. Our members are dedicated and form a tight-knit community that all of our trainers are a part of as well. You will be able to help people reach their goals, change their lives, and forge strong bonds that matter. In addition, our trainer team is second-to-none (we firmly believe we have the best trainers in the area) and we love to help each other, whether it's covering classes in an emergency, brainstorming ideas, or even becoming amazing friends.
ROOM FOR GROWTH
We are a rapidly expanding local business, privately-owned, and there is always room for personal growth. Whether that means teaching more classes, taking on more responsibilities, presenting new ideas, or launching new programs, we want to help you expand your career!
As a part of our team, you'll always have opportunities to pick up additional hours via subbing and you will be the first notified when a new teaching time opens if you want to expand your training hours with us.
PAID ON-THE-JOB TRAINING
We provide paid on-the-job training for the first portion of employment. Training consists of four phases and progression to the next phase will be determined by the Training Instructor based on the performance of the Trainee:
Shadowing the Training Instructor: The Trainee will watch as the Instructor teaches classes. The Trainee and Instructor will meet at the end of the class to clarify any questions.
Co-Teaching with the Training Instructor: Both the Trainee and the Instructor will teach the class together.
Supervised Teaching: The Trainee will lead the class and the Training Instructor will observe. However, the Training Instructor may interrupt with corrections as needed.
Shadowed Teaching: The Trainee will lead the class and the Training Instructor will observe silently. The Training Instructor will reserve any and all feedback for after the class during a private critique with the Trainee. Once Shadowed Teaching has been performed successfully, the Trainee can then begin teaching classes on their own.
Weekday evenings and weekend mornings (must also be able to work at Latham and for a combined total of at least 8-10 hours per week)
Weekday evenings and weekend mornings (must also be able to work at Glenville and for a combined total of at least 8-10 hours per week)
Our SUB LIST is always open -- even if we don't have immediate teaching time slots, we're always looking to expand our sub team. Our existing team members (trainers and subs) will get first notice of any permanent class openings before we hire from the outside.
