By Shane YoungMay 31, 2016

Are you looking for a fitness and wellness community where you are encouraged to thrive?

Are you ready to learn, grow and work with the most amazing holistic fitness team in SF?

Are you looking for consistency and stability without clients becoming just a sales number?

We’ve got you!!

Ascend Body is a San Francisco based, holistic gym offering personal training, nutritional and lifestyle coaching, and massage therapy. We have regularly scheduled community group outings and workshops and are passionate about empowering our clients to live active, well-balanced, joyful lives. And, we’re excited to announce we’re hiring!

We’re searching for a part-time (20 hours/week) Head Trainer to manage our close-knit family of wellness practitioners! We’re looking for someone who resonates with our holistic vibe, loves learning and contributing to a supportive, collaborative environment, and is motivated by personal and professional growth.

If you’re a motivated self starter committed to transforming lives and having fun in the process, or if you know someone who seems like an awesome fit, let us know!

Primary Duties/Responsibilities:

You’re not just a Head Trainer. You’re the person responsible for the ins and outs of our studio. You will coordinate community programs, oversee trainers and quality of fitness programming, manage client accounts, and maintain the quality of Ascend Body by upholding studio values, mission, and ethos.

You’ll instruct small group personal training sessions and also lead 1:1 training sessions as needed. All fitness sessions are tailored to each client’s personal wellness assessment, so you’ll prepare and deliver comprehensive fitness programs based on predetermined goals while motivating and inspiring! You’ll also be responsible for frequent client follow-up and reassessment to track and monitor progress toward goals.
