We are looking for a new trainer to teach a mix of group fitness classes and personal training clients. Trainers have the opportunity to build a large personal training clientele, and are assisted in this by management (walk-ins and calls will be referred to you when appropriate, but we do not guarantee personal training clients). Trainers are largely responsible for generating their own Personal training clientele. We have not found this to be a problem for motivated individuals.
Trainers receive a flat rate per class, plus a per-person bonus. Trainers receive a percentage of their hourly private training rate; this percentage will be determined based on experience and can increase based on performance.
Trainers are employees, not independent contractors, but will have a large degree of autonomy as personal trainers in terms of methodology, promotion, hourly rates, etc.
We are offer health insurance for FULL TIME employees and will be offering 401K retirement options for FULL TIME employees in the near future.

Experience with the Olympic lifts on at least a basic level is ideal. No specific certifications are required, but education and credentials will be considered. Basic gymnastics skills (tumbling, elemental ring work for a general fitness population) is desired.
You must be ambitious, enthusiastic, punctual, reliable and motivated to continually learn and improve. We are looking for a long-term commitment to working at NorCal Strength & Conditioning. Ideal candidates have an interest in developing apprenticeship programs, and educational material however this is secondary to competence as a trainer and being a solid member of the team. Management track opportunities exist for exceptional candidates.
