From BJ Bliffert Founder and Director, Full Throttle Athletics
Dear Prospective Intern,
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 coach so I can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun and rewarding coaching position I have available.
You should have arrived here because you saw my employment ad that reads like this:
"Fitness Internship, excellent attitude, people person, growth/bonus opportunities, apply now at http://friscofitnessinternships.com"
So, let me tell you about me, my company, and the job.
My name is BJ Bliffert and I run a Personal Training and Performance Facility called Full Throttle Athletics located near Frisco, TX.
Our business is dedicated to helping men, women, and competitive youth athletes achieve their health, fitness, and performance goals through customized fitness and nutrition programs.
And business is great!
We're looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, hard working, and energetic person to start training some of our clients.
Our facility is located at 15222 King Rd, Suite 803, Frisco, TX 75034. We are about 1.5 miles west of the intersection of FM423 and Main St. in Frisco.
We currently offer private, semi-private personal training and nutrition programs which motivate, educate, and support men, women, and teens to improve their health, fitness, and performance. All clients start with an initial 6 week Ignition program which includes: mindset coaching, nutrition coaching, fitness and mobility testing, body composition analysis, and weekly training sessions.
If you are selected for this intern position, there will be a 30-day onboarding process, then you'll begin coaching clients in our studio right away for the remainder of the internship. The majority of your hours will be early morning and evening times.
Bottom line: You'll get many hours of training clients per week during you journey with us. You will be essentially be auditioning opportunity to be promoted after a 90-day internship period and become a member of my team. My facility offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful fitness business.
Oh yea, I'm also very fair, respectful and appreciative. I like having fun and making money providing highly valuable fitness services and products.
If you are invited to join our team after your internship 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. 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 business.
Tasks We Need You To Perform
Deliver Comprehensive Health & Fitness Programs For Clients: You'll receive coaching and training on our fitness system and programs, but you'll be expected to deliver them in a fun, enthusiastic, educational, and supportive manner.
Tracking Client Progress: In order to ensure a client's success in our programs, you'll need to track weekly progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets and more on a weekly basis. It will be your job to hold client's accountable to his/her health and fitness program to ensure the best results possible.
Perform Fitness Evaluations: Ideally, you'll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, bodyweight, girth measurements, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that's a bonus.
Demonstrate Proper Exercise Instruction: This is a big one. I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e. muscles, movements, functions, etc.) and be able to provide appropriate exercises for client's goals.
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 educational tools and resources, will be expected to study them and speak about them with your clients. We also spend time covering this in our weekly staff meetings and training.
These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:
Good Communication Skills: You will be talking with my clients, who are VERY important to me. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone and know how to conduct yourself professionally, and deliver clear instructions to the clients. We'll teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but I can't teach you manners and professionalism.
People skills and personality: You must LOVE working with people! As mentioned above you must be very comfortable working with people. This is an exciting training facility and you must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
Health and Fitness Education: You do not need personal training experience, but you should have a working knowledge of health and fitness.
If you have these additional skills, your resume will go right to the top of the stack (but if you don't have these skills, you should still apply because these are not mandatory)
Previous personal training experience (fitness studio, health club, in-home trainer, etc.)
