Entry Level Personal Trainer

The Perfect Workout
On-site
Menlo Park, California, United States CA

The Position. 

You have a passion for fitness and you just know you’d make a great Personal Trainer! But you don’t know where to start, trainer certifications are expensive, or you don’t think you can get a job without previous experience in the industry. This might be the perfect place to begin your fitness career. At The Perfect Workout, we hire charismatic, driven people with a strong passion for helping others on their fitness journeys. 

As a Certified Personal Trainer in one of our private studios, you’ll provide members with effective, safe, and efficient workouts. You’ll generate member and staff referrals, retain members, restart inactive members, produce high member satisfaction scores, sign and renew member training packages, and practice and exemplify our company values: Teamwork, World-Class Customer Service, Evidence-Based, Candor, and Kaizen.

 

The Perfect Workout.

At The Perfect Workout, our Certified Personal Trainers help people 1-on-1 with a specialty exercise method - slow-motion strength training.
