Fitness Instructor (Casual)

 

Job overview

 

Building on our continued growth, we’re now the UK’s largest leisure social enterprise – and set for even greater success. So, if you have plenty of energy, ambition and expertise, join us as a Fitness Instructor and play a key role in the next step of our journey. Bringing ambition to match ours, this is your chance to help people to achieve their fitness potential with a leisure sector leader.

 

If you love variety, you’ll thrive here, as you never know who you’ll be supporting next. A typical day could be anything from providing a personal service in the gym and offering workout advice to checking the equipment and even teaching classes. That means we’re looking for a Fitness Instructor with physical fitness, combined with a can-do attitude and the eye for detail needed for paperwork. An obvious passion for all things fitness will need to shine through all you do too, so that you can make a positive difference to people’s lives.

 

As a Fitness Instructor, part of your role is to inspire people to train independently and keep coming back. So, it all starts with an induction, for you to understand someone’s ability and ambitions – and ultimately, devise a bespoke programme that suits their needs. As a real people-person, this will come naturally as you quickly build people’s trust and confidence. Of course, you’ll also need knowledge of health and safety legislation and experience gained in a busy leisure/fitness centre and the following qualifications: NVQ level 2 Fitness Instructor (level 3 desirable), Emergency First Aid at Work and REPS Registration Level 2 or above.

 

Join us as a Fitness Instructor and enjoy career progression and great benefits including flexible hours and locations, a uniform and discounted membership at all our leisure centres.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
