You’re personable, knowledgeable and professional – someone who gets on really well with people from all walks of life. What’s more, your experience to date makes you a truly inspiring presence on the gym floor. In short, you’re ideal for the role of Personal Coach at our Virgin Active Classic Collection.

Part of one of the UK’s most prestigious group of companies, the luxurious Virgin Active Classic Collection clubs are the ultimate choice for those who want the very best in lifestyle, service and fitness. And, right now, we need outstanding Personal Coaches to deliver the sort of fitness activities you would expect at an exclusive club like ours. We’ll also expect you to deliver polished member inductions and PT Intro’s as you seek to reach and exceed your personal targets as a leading Personal Coach.

Being a Personal Coach within the Virgin Active Classic Collection is about personality, passion and professionalism. It’s also about partnership - linking up with our sales teams to deliver quick starts and PT Intros to suit new member’s individual needs and teaching some fast classes to make sure members see how great you are. We’ll expect you to work hard to seek out and deliver your own regular sessions too. Indeed, to make the role commercially viable, you’ll need to aim for at least 20 sessions per week. That means doing all you can to build your reputation and client base. We’ll help by giving you paid for gym floor activities,  full marketing and training support and a ready-made market to sell to – our members.

To succeed, you'll need a fitness qualification equivalent to a REPs Level 3, plus a genuine passion for fitness. Used to delivering personal training services that offer a safe, effective and fun way to get the most from a workout, you’re a real presence in the gym – someone who truly motivates and inspires others and, ideally, knows how to sell. If, however, you don’t already have sales skills, we’ll teach you. We’ll also take care of your insurance, REPs registration and licence fee etc.

What’s more, from day one, you’ll be able to pay into our pension plan. You’ll enjoy paid holidays too, plus free in-house training and discounts on external courses. We’ll even support your career journey with monthly 1-2-1s to discuss how it’s going and help you up-skill and progress. As well as working in luxury surroundings as part of a highly professional team, you’ll enjoy an enviable range of benefits like complimentary gym membership for you and a friend and a birthday bonus day off – we’ve pushed ourselves hard to offer you the best. Are you now ready to push yourself further?
