“If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude  And Can Work On Your Own Initiative As Well As Part Of A Team, Then This Could Be The Career For You"

First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this page. It’s my hope that you have precisely what I need in a coach so I can take this page down and get you started straight away.

So, let me tell you about myself, my business and the available coaching position.

My name is Steve McGrath and I own a sports performance and fitness training facility called STEVE MCGRATH HEALTH & PERFORMANCE near Carrigtwohill, Cork. 

My training facility caters for general fitness enthusiasts looking to keep themselves fit and healthy so they can enjoy a higher quality of life, as well as athletes looking to improve their sports performance.

The position I am looking to fill is a health & performance coach. Your job will include training our valued clients, designing safe and effective training programs, participating in our facility’s projects and marketing efforts, and maintaining a safe, clean training environment for both our clients and ourselves. 

Our current full-time coach is setting sail for Australia, so we are looking to fill a full-time position from September onwards, with a 20 hour per week part-time position for the month of August

If you are hired for this job position, you'll:

• Work 20 hours work-week starting in August to get trained in

• Work a 40 hour work-week from September onwards

• Work a trial period of 6 months

• Work in a great environment that provides real job satisfaction

• Be part of a successful and professional health & fitness team

• Receive the highest level of training on a continuous basis to help develop you as a professional and capable coach

Contract, salary, etc. will be discussed if we decide that you are a good fit for our business after we have received your CV.

Tasks You'll be Performing:

Training clients: we value our clients and the decision they have made to train with us. As part of our professional team, you will be tasked with delivering the highest level of coaching, workshops and client service to the clients that you will be working with. This includes semi-private (max 4 people per session) and large group training (max 10 people per session) programs

• Client administrative work: contacting medical professionals, scheduling client sessions, filing client paperwork, following up online with their corrective work, nutrition and lifestyle coaching, etc.

• Marketing and promotions: This is a big part of what we do in order to attract the type of clients we love working with. You will need to have initiative and drive to come up with ideas and also take part in our competitions and marketing projects. 

Your qualifications, along with your photo, will be displayed on our website and you will also be required to take part in our gym videos and write fitness related articles for our website, etc.

Program Design: All programs are designed to take client goals, fitness level, injury history, etc. into account. This is a very important part of this position that enables us to design safe and effective training programs

• Referrals and testimonials: These are a big part of our marketing strategy. You will be responsible for getting written and/or video testimonials from our clients on a regular basis as well as executing out client referral systems

• Gym maintenance: This is nothing major, but it's a must to maintain a safe and clean training facility

Required Skills And Qualifications

To qualify for this position you must hold a recognised health and fitness qualification, sports performance degree or equivalent qualification.

• Have good phone and personal etiquette: you will be talking with our customers, who are VERY important to us, and prospective customers, who are just as important. You must be comfortable conversing on the phone and in person. You must know how to conduct yourself professionally, take clear messages and deliver clear instructions to the prospect, client and other staff members. We’ll teach you everything you need to say and do, but we expect you to have manners and professionalism

• Thoughtfulness, organization and INITIATIVE: we need you to be able to think for yourself and be organized. We are very serious about this one. We do not want a robot. We want someone who learns and grows with us, doesn’t need to be led by the hand and is capable of coming up with their own ideas and implementing them. Keeping work organized is also a high requirement for all staff as sloppiness and a disorganized workplace leads to poor services, clients results and a bad working environment

• Punctuality: you must be ready to start work on time. We ask clients not to be late for appointments so we expect the same from staff

• Be serious and dedicated to developing as a professional health & performance coach. There are too many 'doing-it-as-a-hobby' coaches out there and they are not a good fit for our business

Bonus Skills/qualifications

If you have these additional skills, your c.v will go right to the top of the stack. If you don’t have these skills, you should still apply because these are not mandatory and just because someone has them does not mean they will get the job.

• Extra fitness qualifications such as kettlebells, Olympic lifting, FMS, etc.

• Health related qualification such as massage, physical therapy, etc.

• Previous work experience in a sports performance, fitness and results-driven environment


Application Process:

If we feel you’re a good candidate for the job after reviewing your CV, we’ll call you to set up a first interview.

We are not able to reply to every unsuccessful application due to time demands, so if you do not hear from us within 14 days, then you can take it that your application has been unsuccessful.

I look forward to reviewing it and hopefully meeting you in person soon.

Best regards,

Steve McGrath,

P.S. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything in our business. We want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing great work and contributing to the growth of the business, sharing in the rewards of it, as well as helping our clients to achieve their health, fitness and sports performance goals.

With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm, a positive attitude and using your initiative go a long way. We are a very positive training facility and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills we outlined above, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate.
