    Job Description

    Push your clients hard. Push yourself further.

    Here at Virgin Active, we’re not like other health clubs. For a start, we don’t charge our Personal Trainers rent or fees for the gym floor - we treat them like full-time employees. What’s more, we don’t believe in overloading our gym floor for the sake of a few more pounds either. But, with just 10% of our members currently signed up to PT sessions, we do have a huge commercial opportunity ready and waiting for people like you.

    A role that’s about personality, passion and professionalism, it’s also about linking up with our sales teams to offer complimentary sessions to new members and designing tailored programmes to suit individual needs. We’ll expect you to work hard to seek out and deliver your own regular sessions too. Indeed, to make the role commercially viable, you’ll need to aim for at least 15 sessions per week. That means doing all you can to build your reputation and client base. We’ll help by giving you full marketing and training support and a ready-made market to sell to – our members.

    Job Requirements

    Personal Trainer - Nationwide

    To succeed, you'll need a fitness qualification equivalent to a REPs Level 3, plus a genuine passion for fitness. Used to delivering personal training sessions that offer a safe, effective and fun way to get the most from a workout, you’re a real presence in the gym – someone who truly motivates and inspires others and, ideally, knows how to sell. If, however, you don’t have sales skills, we’ll teach you. We’ll also take care ofyour insurance, REPs registration and licence fee etc. And that’s not all.

    From day one, you’ll be able to pay into our pension plan. You’ll enjoy paid holidays too, plus free in-house training courses, and discounts on external courses. We’ll even support your career journey with monthly 1-2-1s to discuss how it’s going and help you up-skill and progress. Recognition schemes and bonuses, benefits like complimentary gym membership for you and a friend, childcare assistance and a birthday bonus day off – we’ve pushed ourselves hard to offer you the best. Are you now ready to push yourself further?
