If You Have Enthusiasm, a Positive Attitude and a Passion for Helping People, I Have a Great Paying, Fun, and Fulfilling Personal Training Position for You!

Dear Prospective Trainer/Fitness Coach,

First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope that you have precisely what I need in a personal trainer/fitness coach so I can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun, rewarding coaching position I have available.

If you arrived here from an external source, it should have been because you saw my employment ad that reads like this:

So let me tell you about my company and the coaching position.

My name is Fatimat Olukoju and I run a fitness and nutrition coaching company called Village Coach Fitness. We are a private studio located 17072 Van Buren Blvd., Riverside, CA. My business is dedicated to helping men and women of all ages achieve their health and fitness goals through all inclusive, high end nutrition and fitness programs.

And business is booming! We continuously grow our business every year and are able to help more and more people.

I currently offer one-on-one, semi-private, youth strength and conditioning and group fitness customized nutrition and fitness programs, which educate, motivate, inspire, and support our clients in their journey to achieving their goals. We go the extra mile to deliver first class service and top-notch client experience. With your help, I plan to continue expanding the programs and services Village Coach Fitness offers.

If you’re passionate about health and fitness, love working with people, and are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others, then this is the position for you! For the right individual, you also may have the opportunity to work in business and program development, and special projects.

If you are hired for this coaching position, you will begin coaching/training clients part-time. I require a flexible schedule. Early mornings, afternoon, evenings, and weekends are our busiest time. As fitness professionals, we work when our clients don’t.

If you’re a good fit for our company, you will be hired and paid as an independent contractor. If you show me you are fully committed and are a good fit you’ll have the opportunity to grow your career here. I offer great wages, performance bonuses, and more.

Oh yeah, I’m also very fair, respectful, and appreciative. I like having fun while providing highly valuable fitness services and products. You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly, and I will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it.

Bottom line: I want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others…because that’s what we do in my studio. You’ll become part of an exciting and growing community. If you don’t have a lot of experience. That’s okay. I prefer experience, but it’s not a requirement. However there are two qualities you absolutely must possess:
1. Passion! You must have a passion for this industry and helping people achieve life-changing results.
2. You must be a people person. If you truly care and connect with people…you’re well on your way to becoming an excellent coach.
I am building a team of like-minded fitness professionals dedicated excellence! Are you an “A” Player”? “A Players” are people who are committed to excellence in all that they do.

They can get a job anywhere, but they take the time to research the companies they’re considering working for, they’re selective in the interviews they go out on, and they “go that extra mile” in searching for the right opportunity because they’re looking for more than a job…they’re looking for a place where they can grow long term…a nice and welcoming work environment.

They’re looking to be part of a team where they can make a positive impact on the world through the work they do WHILE being challenged to grow and become a better version of themselves.

If that doesn’t sound like you, then feel free to stop reading this page and close your browser window now. If you think you are, in fact, an “A Player”, then please read on to learn more about the exciting opportunity we have available for the right candidate.

Our hiring process isn’t quick and easy.

I’m going to ask you to jump through a few hoops to prove you’ve got the character as well as demonstrate the values that align with our team and mission. You will have 2-3 interviews and I will take my time in making sure you’re someone I want to grow with us in the years to come. Okay, if I haven’t scared you away yet, then let’s continue…

You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that’s a bonus.
  • Provide Exceptional Client Care & Connection: This is an absolute must as a member of our team. This means you stay connected with our clients through text, email, by phone, and through various other means. Let them know you care and are there for them. Drop them a note when they’re doing great, and pick them up when they fall. Let them know you’re always in their corner and you’ll be there to celebrate their successes and coach them through their challenges.
  • 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 professional to provide our clients with health and fitness education on various topics that will empower them to lead healthier lives.
