Launching a Career in Personal Training

Become a True Professional

We are looking for recently qualified, about to qualify or qualified, but with limited reputation, personal trainers. With an opportunity to grow that experience level, reputation and build to a ‘professional’ level within the fitness industry.

A qualification in personal training is only the beginning of the process to becoming a reputable coach. Many course providers make promises based on statistics that give an unreasonable expectation of great wealth & easy hours all doing something you love.

The income levels promised by course providers are akin to that of a business professional (Lawyer, Accountant, Architect, Doctor etc). But those professions require, at minimum, 5 years training to simply get a foot on the ladder. It then takes years to finally command the fees they are generally known for

Is it therefore reasonable to assume that completing a basic course in gym inductions & personal training should instantly provide that level of respect & financial reward?

Is it therefore reasonable to assume that completing a basic course in gym inductions & personal training should instantly provide that level of respect & financial reward?

Our goal is not to help you become busy quickly. It’s to help you become credible & worthy of commanding higher fees, whilst developing a long-term career, not a job 

Targets and Expectations

Income over the first 6 months should be considered a bonus. It is certainly possible to earn a good income, but it should not be expected. This period should be considered an opportunity to lay foundations for future growth as a reputable coach.

An income of over £1000 per month (plus bonuses) should be sought from the 6 months to one-year mark.

Again, it is possible to vastly exceed this. That, however, should be an aspiration, not an expectation.

Long Term prospects of c£50,000 per year are possible. But this should be earned to through consistent quality service and a professional reputation.

Paid Hours Position

Roles & Responsibilities

All decisions should be made based as “we” rather than “I”.

A Rising Tide Lifts All Ships

Personal Trainers will be required to take charge of existing group training sessions (after coaching if required) with the view of developing their reputation.

Use of the facility for developing your own reputation in conjunction with our brand is not only allowed, it is expected.

Additional time will be spent helping members, delivering tours, putting through sales and keeping the facility presentable and in good order.

Communication & Trust are of the highest importance. And that cuts both ways.

We will endeavour to deliver the tools and platform to ensure you have the strongest foundations for long-term success. However, an open communication of ideas, desires, frustrations and limitations should be the norm.

We grow together and we learn from our failures together.

The growth of the business, through serving people to the highest possible level, should be the primary motivator. Enhanced reputation coming second with inclusion in the profit sharing bonuses & steadily building income streams being a bonus that allows performance to flourish.

Our job is not to make you busy. It’s to make you credible and as such, to become amazing value for money regardless of price!

If you just want to be busy, then join the heard and follow the usual path. Join a large chain gym and work to set up your conveyor belt of clients where you are unable to give the high quality service you sought to give in the beginning because the system doesn’t allow it. And keep in mind, the average failure rate for those following that path is 70% within 2 years.

With us, there is a plan in place and a career path ‘of sorts’ laid out for you if you wish to continue your path with us beyond the 6 months.

BUT…

Only if you are the right fit for our team and the ethos of the club in general.

If this long introduction hasn’t put you off, then you are already a step ahead of those who just search around for the quickest and easiest path, sending out the same letter and CV to every gym in their area in a desperate attempt to start earning.

Apply

If interested, please email mark@dcsfit.com or complete the form below, giving a brief response to the following questions:

  1. Why do you feel you would be a good fit for our team?
  2. What do you feel you would like your contribution to the industry and those you serve to be over the next 5 years?
  3. What do you hope to achieve, personally, from your time and career in the industry?

Anything else that feels useful, feel free to add. But the preference would be to then meet in person as personality, drive and enthusiasm is the main element of interest.

Please do NOT include a CV as it will not be read. We want to know about you as a person, not you as an academic or your job history (unless relevant to the above 3 questions).
