Seattle Strength & Performance 
Job title: Fitness Coach/Personal Trainer
Work Location: 7408 Greenwood Ave N Seattle, WA 98103 AND 601 W McGraw St Seattle, WA 98119
Reports to: Program Design Manager
 Full-time Part-time Exempt Nonexempt
About Our Company:
Seattle Strength & Performance has two locations in Queen Anne and Phinney Ridge, Seattle WA. Its mission is to make strength training inclusive and accessible to every person. We believe in providing expert coaching to deliver the best results through our proven programming. Along the way, our strong community built of committed members is there to support everyone together.  We are looking to bring on a high-quality member to our team. The right candidate must possess a passion for contributing to a committed community of individuals (both members + staff) and want to be part of a fast-growing company with strong ambitions.  

Our culture is based on core values which drive our ‘why’: 
#1 Strength training is for everybody: We pride ourselves in creating an inclusive community, one where everyone feels welcome, and where, no matter your age or abilities, we will train you safely and effectively. 

#2 Community is everything: Coaches and members empower each other to be the best possible versions of ourselves we can be. 

#3 Moving better = feeling better: We want everyone to experience the benefit of how movement positively impacts their quality of life. 

#4 Smart coaching means personalized to you: Our programming is not one size fits all; we evaluate your needs and abilities and program for you to keep you healthy, moving, and to get the best results possible. The gym takes care of you; not just individuals. 

#5 People are capable of much more than they think they are: Our coaches live this and we give it back to our members. We push you in the best possible way so we can see your reaction when you do something you never thought you’d be able to do.  

#6 If we’re not having fun, we’re doing something wrongStrength training should be work but should also be fun. Fitness should be fun. If you’re not having fun (and we’re not having fun), we need to find another way of doing things.

#7 Continuous learning is in our DNA
We focus on raising our own bar to be able to give the best coaching and experience we can back to our members. 

Essential Duties and Responsibilities: The Fitness Coach must be a self-starter, exhibiting high energy working with clients, simultaneously motivating and building a great culture in the gym. We are a small team and this person must exemplify the core values of our culture through their daily work. They should have a “roll up their sleeves” mentality, taking an ownership mindset when in the gym and priding themselves on their work. We want people who are dedicated to providing the absolute best coaching and committed to building a strong and thriving community for our members.  

Primary duties will be to conduct personal training in a semi-private setting (one coach with up to many members) and leading both strength and metabolic conditioning classes of up to 16 people. This role will involve 20-25 hours per week of training floor time with members and 15-20 hours per week of administrative work.  The ideal candidate should enjoy being in a gym and have a strong passion for helping others succeed and delivering results. They should want to continually improve themselves through education and take an active interest in bringing ideas to improve community, growth and development in the gym.  

Note: all new coaching positions with SSP start with our coaching internship program. It is a paid position requiring 80 hours of shadowing and coaching work, and it is the first step to full or part time positions with SSP. During this time, you get to understand our systems and ways of working to evaluate if it it’s a fit for you. We also get to meet and work with you to understand if you’re a fit for our community. We love adding people to our team but we also take the act of adding people seriously. It is important we use this initial period to evaluate fit on both sides.
