Health Club Jobs
Fitness careers in gyms are ideal for those who have a passion for health and fitness and enjoy working as a part of a team. Gyms are businesses that employ many people, some who work behind the scenes to ensure that things operate smoothly, and others who provide expert fitness advice to clients. The jobs available are incredibly diverse, ranging from those who have an immediate impact on the fitness of clients, such as fitness instructors, and personal trainers, to those who also work directly with clients, but engage with them on the business side of things, such as sales consultants, and receptionists. No matter what end of the career spectrum you are engaged with during your employment at a gym, there are obvious perks, including free of discounted membership, motivation to maintain your own fitness regime, and a sense of community.
Careers in gyms:
Fitness Instructors lead classes that teach specialised fitness skills such as: yoga, Pilates, and aquasize.
Personal Trainers work one-to-one with clients in devising personalised fitness and dietary programs to improve their overall health.
Marketing Directors are responsible for keeping the business afloat, through creating and designing sponsorship and membership initiatives. Although they may not be working directly with clients, in order to create successful promotional materials and programs they must have a strong interest and knowledge of their clients' needs.
Membership Consultants will meet directly with potential members to discuss their needs, and inform them of the many services offered by the organisation. They may also be responsible for processing new memberships.
