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 fitness trainer so I can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun and rewarding coaching position I have available.
You should have arrived here because you saw my employment ad.
Personal Trainer, $15-22/hr, excellent attitude, people person, growth/bonus opportunities. www.gmamafitness.com/staff/
So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position.
My name is Marissa Herring
and I run a fitness and nutrition coaching company called Garage Mama Fitness in Winter Garden, Fl.
My business is dedicated to helping women; men and children achieve their health and fitness goals through customized nutrition and fitness programs.
I'm looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients.
My facility is located on 535 and 50 in Winter Garden.
I currently offer one-on-one customized nutrition and fitness programs, semi-private coaching classes and nutrition counseling which educate, motivate, and support men, women, and children to improve their health and fitness. All clients begin with an initial 12-week coaching package which includes: nutrition counseling, exercise program design, nutritional supplements, monthly fitness assessments and possible weekly training sessions here at the facility.
If you are hired for this coaching position, you'll begin coaching clients in the facility 2 - 4 days a week for 3-4 hours per day (6am-10am), or 3-4 hours (4pm-8pm). You MUST be available to train these hours.
Bottom line: you'll get at least 10-12 hours of training clients per week at $15 per hour. You will be paid as an independent contractor, and have the opportunity to move up to $22 dollars (and go full-time) after a 90-day trial period. My studio offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training facility
Oh yeah, I'm 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's what we do Garage Mama Fitness.
