Do you...

...have a strong desire to serve others through health and fitness coaching?

We pride ourselves in delivering exceptional health and fitness coaching so that people can live their healthiest lives outside of our gym. It starts with building a personal relationship and finding the best ways to help.

...share our health and fitness coaching philosophy?

We believe in coaching sustainable habits for each individual; whether it’s nutrition, stress management, sleep or exercise, we want to help people find ways to be happy, healthy, and fulfilled for the long term.

This coaching position would start as part time with the potential to move to full-time. You will have the opportunity to have your own clients, provide private training and run programs that align with our ideals and serve the needs of our community. In doing so, your income is limited simply by your work ethic.

...represent our values and display healthy habits regularly?

Our clients look to us as examples, so we want to represent the behaviours/actions in which we value:

  • Experience Joy

  • Embrace Community

  • Be Consistent
