Who we are:

Bolt Fitness is a brand new Strength and Conditioning studio in the heart of Ravenswood. With the opening of Bolt, we are looking for coaches who are ready to grow with the business. We believe that hiring individuals with the same core values as us (integrity, hard work, teamwork, and diversity and inclusion) will only lead Bolt to long-term success. We want you to bring your own creativity and specialities to our gym. We are only as good as the people we surround ourselves with.

Coaches will be running 60-minute group classes that run throughout the day from 5am to 7pm on the weekdays, and 8am-11am on the weekends. Classes include three different formats: Bolt HIIT, Strength and Conditioning, and Speed. Classes will be programmed by the owners, with the opportunity to create your own if you wish to do so. Coaches will also be allowed to take on personal training clients through the gym as well.

If you think you have what it takes to change people’s lives through fitness, be sure to apply today!
