We're looking for a high-level trainer (or an aspiring one) who is competent in their understanding of human movement, corrective exercise, and teaching / coaching the fundamentals.

Just as important, if not more so, we are looking for a person who is genuine about helping & coaching others, and is passionate about learning, growing, and giving.

  • Conducting 1-1 personal training & small group training
  • Designing & implementing strength & conditioning programs for general population
  • Performing client assessments & evaluating functional movement patterns
  • Advising on corrective exercise
  • Providing ongoing health, fitness & lifestyle coaching, education & nutrition advice to clients

We're looking for someone who:

  • Is a high-level trainer (or an aspiring one)
  • Is an open-minded thinker
  • Has a combination of drive & commitment, intelligence, positive energy and great interpersonal skills
  • Is compassionate and has a genuine desire to connect with & help others
  • Is open, honest & trustworthy
  • Is organised and professional
