WANT TO WORK FOR KING STRENGTH?

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES

As a KING trainer, you’ll provide expert coaching across group training, semi-private, and private personal training – all based on the principles of strength/resistance training. Your main responsibilities include:

  • Leading high-quality, engaging group training where you are executing the gym’s programming.
  • Programming for and conducting effective personal training sessions (both 1-1 private and/or small group semi-private), while progressing and retaining your clients.
  • Participating in regular team meetings and occasional 1-on-1 meetings, while staying responsive to daily updates.
  • Improving your skills & knowledge through monthly, relevant continuing education.

YOUR COMPENSATION & BENEFITS

  • Classes/Group Training: $25.00/Hour to start. Up to $30/ hour as a tenured trainer. Raises based on Performance, Projects and Time Served.
  • Personal Training (either semi-private and 1-1): Compensation dependent on level of activity, experience and tenure. Up to $50.00/Hour per client.
  • You’ll be paid for meetings longer than 30-minutes such as our team meetings
  • Medical and Dental Benefit options available for full-time positions.
  • Unlimited Group Training Membership (valued at $225-450/month) for yourself AND for your significant other, pending initial assessment for safety.
  • Coach’s Membership to TrainHeroic, the software we use to program, track, and manage client progress.
  • Ongoing CPR/AED recertification. While you’re part of our trainer team, the gym covers the cost of the 2-year CPR/AED certification so long as you’re able to attend with our trainers.
  • Continuing Education.  The gym will reimburse you for 1 certification/seminar/event of choice annually (subject to approval) within a maximum budget of $1,500 USD. We recommend The Art of Coaching’s Apprenticeship event for the upcoming year but do let us know your preference.
  • Free and Discounted Gym Merchandise. Trainers have first access to new gym merchandise before their release, as well as discounted pricing year-round.
  • Work with interesting people who want to grow, excel, and change people’s lives with a minimum of toxicity, politicking, and drama – all while being able to build a sustainable career.

The interview process

STEP 1: Introductory Video Chat [Virtual]: 15~30 min video chat where you’ll learn exactly what we’re looking for, we will learn what you are looking for, and we’ll both see if there’s mutual interest to work together.

STEP 2: Experience Our Group Training + Technical [In-Person]: You’ll need to experience at least 2-3 different classes during your interview process to get a sense of what we provide. After class we’ll sit and talk – just as we’d assess a new client to see their starting point, we’d like to see how you think about programming, progression, communication, and more.

STEP 3: Shadow & Lead Group Training [In-Person]: You’ll lead up to 2 Group Training sessions under the supervision of one of our trainers. And we’ll make a decision based on your performance, coach ability, and input from both our trainers and clients.

 

All together, you may be coming on-site up to 4 times within 2 weeks through this process. Note that your own interview process may proceed faster than 2 weeks if you’re able to schedule all of the above earlier.
