Job Description

We are looking to add 1 full-time coach to our world-class team. We are looking for people that first and foremost fit our culture, our vision, and our values. Our values are:

Professionalism - we believe in the profession of coaching. That includes being compensated like a professional and consistently owning your craft as a coach.

Service - we believe that the clients are the heroes of the story and we are the guides to their success. Their needs come first and foremost

Growth Minded - we don't subscribe to any particular dogma when it comes to coaching. We want team members who are constantly evolving and challenging their own held beliefs about how we can better serve clients.

Holistic - we believe that clients get their best results when we address all aspects of their health, not just fitness.

Team First - the organization can only succeed when everyone adopts a "team first" mentality versus a "me" mentality. You need to be a team player and see value in supporting your colleagues.

Our ideal candidate is someone who is humble, hard-working, great with people, and wants to be a part of a strong team. Knowledge and experience is a plus, but likely not the determining factor. If you have been coaching CrossFit or Group Fitness or Personal Training for awhile and you are wondering how you can make this a long term career, then you may be a great fit for our organization.
