HOW TO ACUTALLY MAKE A CAREER OUT OF FITNESS. IT IS A REAL JOB.
Before you get excited and apply read this over.
Must be outgoing, fun loving , and passionate about helping people
Must be willing to practice what you preach, (don’t care if you are in shape, but you will be when you are done)
Must be coachable (if you know it all then don’t apply)
Must be willing to take feedback and constructive criticism
If you are flakey, lazy, etc DO NOT APPLY. We will put a ton of time and work into you, I expect the same
Must be ok with participating with random sing alongs and dance parties that pop up in the gym
You will be coaching and interacting with clients in a controlled setting. This is not the go make coffee and empty trashes internship… YOU WILL COACH and HAVE FUN!
One of the goals of this internship is to find our next coach who possibly will start working at CFP after the internship is over.
It’d be better to call the internship an apprenticeship because we’ll be coaching you to become the best coach you can be. We’ll feature real, significant education and real time with clients in the gym. But only apply if you want to have fun and have a passion to learn.
As an intern, you would have the opportunity to compliment your hands-on learning experience with participation in our staff meetings in which we focus on continuing education in a classroom-style learning environment. We work closely with our interns to develop coaching, assessment and program-design skill sets to compliment career aspirations within the fitness industry.
See the fitness business from the inside, which is much more than “sell, train, sell.” See how it is relationships and motivation.
This internship is set up to do two things.
1. Create the perfect coach to possibly work at Chicago Fit Performance but even more important
2. Put you on the path to making this a career.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD.
WE CHANGE LIVES!!!
