  • If you prove you have what it takes we will provide you with continuing training education, giving you the opportunity to earn $29-54/hour

Let us tell you about ourselves, our company, and the coaching opportunity.

I'm Dave Mugavero, and my facilities Custom Bodies Fitness in Irvine, and Fitness One Express in Brea have been consistently rated as 5 star training facilities. Our Irvine location has been rated the #1  health club in Orange County and has also been voted the “Best Gym” in Orange County.

Our business is dedicated to helping people achieve their health and fitness goals through customized nutrition and fitness programs. We’re looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic individuals to help us continue growing our market. If you are looking for a chance to break into the fitness industry, or looking for a new opportunity, this could be what you are looking for.

If you are chosen for this coaching position you will begin learning our proven method and developing your skills and client base right away with the best trainers and coaches in the area. You will be provided with full support and the best training in the industry, plus you will be given a complete road map with a clear vision of how you can achieve your goals and dreams.

Our health club offers a fun and casual environment in an upscale facility with great training equipment. You will have the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training department within our health club.

We are very fair, respectful, and appreciative as well. We enjoy having fun and making money providing highly valuable fitness services and products. You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly, and we will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it by offering bonus incentives. We want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others—because that’s what we do in our health club.

Tasks you’ll be expected to perform

  • Develop our client base: We will teach you all the tools and training necessary for your success. Our goal is to develop your potential and help you grow. If we can help you to be successful then we will be successful as a club. It’s that simple! We want individuals who show initiative to help develop the client base of our health club.
  • Develop Comprehensive Health & Fitness Programs: If selected you will enroll in our completely done-for-you guaranteed proven coaching and training system, and you will have the flexibility to incorporate your training style, personality and knowledge into our program.
  • Tracking Client Progress: In order to ensure a client’s success in our program, the system will help you track weekly progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log data and more on a weekly basis. It will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her health and fitness program to ensure the best results possible.
  • Perform Fitness Evaluations: Ideally, you will have some fitness assessment skills and can test for body composition, body weight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate and various strength, cardio and flexibility tests. We will train you, so you do not need previous experience.
  • Coach Clients through Structured Fitness Programs: Our system is designed to help you keep detailed weekly progress reports on the clients you’re working with. We will provide you with all the tracking and progress tools. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her program, you will coach and motivate them and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress, but you'll never be alone if you need help.
  • Demonstrate Proper Exercise Instruction: This is very important. We need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You will be learning our system through videos and hands-on training. Don’t worry though. We have it all done for you. All you need to do is watch and participate, then demonstrate the exercises for our clients. It couldn't be easier. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e. muscles, movements, functions, etc.).
  • Provide Ongoing Health and Fitness Education: Our clients rely on us to service all of their health and fitness needs. It is your job as a fitness coach to provide our clients with health and fitness education on various topics that will empower them to lead healthy lives forever. You’ll be provided with numerous educational tools and resources to do just that. We also spend time covering this in our bi-monthly staff meetings.

 Required Skills

These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:

  •  Good Communication Skills: You will be talking with our clients and prospective clients who are VERY important to us. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone. You must know how to conduct yourself professionally and deliver clear instructions to clients. We’ll teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but we can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
  • People Skills and Personality: Must be comfortable and love working with people. This is an exciting health club and you must be able to show our clients energy and excitement while working with them.
  • Health and Fitness Education: You do not initially need to be a certified personal trainer.
  • Personal training Experience: Previous experience is helpful but not required.
  • Current CPR and AED Certifications a plus.

 Bonus Skills

If you have these additional skills your resume will go right to the top of the stack. If you do not have these skills you should still apply because they are not mandatory.

  • Sales Experience
  • Kinesiology or other fitness related degree
  • AFFA Certification or Group Fitness training experience
  • Nutrition Certification

This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to us. If you perform, you will be rewarded. We want nothing more than to find the right people who take a real interest in doing good work and taking care of our clients.

With that said, as we mentioned in the headline, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in our book. We’re a very positive, upbeat business and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills we mentioned, and a great attitude then you’re definitely a candidate!

Who should apply?

We are very specific about the type of individuals we will accept as trainers at our club, because we know who will be successful based on our experience and criteria. Please do not apply for this opportunity if you do not currently have a source of income. Most of our trainers start on a part-time basis because they have other jobs, but their passion is fitness. They can then move into a full time position. Big health clubs will not generally hire trainers without experience or training. Because we provide both experience and training, we are able to take the time to mentor our trainers which in turn insures that they will become the best trainers in the industry. We are very interested in helping you succeed if you meet our criteria. We are looking for:

1.)Professional individuals who may currently have a full-time, or part-time job, but are passionate about fitness, helping others, and initially working part time in the Personal Training field in order to gain knowledge and build a successful clientele.

2.) Students who are studying a health science in school, or are passionate about becoming the best trainer possible while still attending school and working part-time as a personal trainer.

3.) Older adults re-entering the workforce who have a passion for fitness, and another means to financially support themselves while building their clientele.

4.) Individuals who are willing to invest a small amount of time and money into their passion and education in order to separate themselves from the majority of under qualified trainers currently employed in the fitness industry.

5.) You must live in the proximity of our health club located in irvine CA.
