Fitness/Sport Performance Coach, Excellent & Awesome Attitude, People-Person Driven Career Path in Fun, Rewarding Facility
Alright Twin Cities, we’re looking for another dynamic, driven, detail-oriented individual to “get on the bus” with a growing fitness & sport performance company that is changing the way the fitness game is played in the Twin Cities.
TRUTH: Awesome companies have awesome people.
If you’re just looking for a quick buck as you take some time to look for your dream job elsewhere, this isn’t the position for you, BUT if you’re competitive, looking for an opportunity to grow and develop personally and professionally, and want to make an impact on (awesome) people’s lives every single day, this just may be the shot you’ve been looking for.
HOW THIS WORKS
Candidates that make it through our initial process (email/cover letter/resume, phone interview, in person interview, “coach the coach”, shadow session, etc.) will enter into a 90-day (paid) internship/apprenticeship.
Frankly, it’s not the easiest process to get through. We aren’t looking for your run-of-the-mill “big box gym” clipboard holder “they” call a personal trainer, cool?
Yes, it’s going to take some work on your part.
If you’re interested in DRASTICALLY changing the trajectory of the lives of young athletes and adults alike…
If you’re a person of the utmost honesty and integrity, and believe in your ability to overcome obstacles through hard work, drive, and “get-after-it”ness…
If you’re up to strive to be the best part of your client’s day, every day…
If you believe in treating people right. Like family. And giving everything you’ve got to help them reach their goals…
If you’re willing and READY to learn, grow, build or develop any skill set necessary to become the absolute BEST at what you do…
Then YOU may be the perfect person to be next member of Team DSC.
YOUR DEVELOPMENT (what we’ll teach you, and eventually grade you, on)
*****You do NOT have to be a certified trainer/coach OR have training experience to apply for this position. Our coaching development program will take you into the top 1% of coaching candidates ANYWHERE once you finish our curriculum as a part of your internship/apprenticeship.*****
In fact, here’s what previous alumni have said about our apprenticeship/mentoring program:
“I learned more in 60 days here than I did in four years of my exercise science degree” -AB
“This program was mind-blowing! By far the best decision of my career in the fitness industry. I got a coaching job closer to home less than 2 weeks after ‘graduating’ the DSC Mentorship Program and was able to excel right away” -JB
“The training education I received felt like getting 3 PHD’s in athletic performance and fat loss, but learning how to use that knowledge to literally transform lives, and to see that transformation taking place before your eyes, was what really made it special for me. Highly recommend” -MH
Here’s the deal, it’s designed to fully develop you to become one of the best coaches/leaders in any organization.

Your determination to be relentlessly helpful about moving our clients toward perfect form/technique, and helping them feel awesome about doing so.
Presence and Attitude
Your ability to speak loudly and clearly at all times above the background noise of music, the dropping of weights, the moans of agony from members (only kidding) … all within a very driven, high energy environment.
Your skill set to command and control a crowd, showing your confidence without being jerk, all the while being respectful and making every member of “the family” feel welcome.

You’ll be taught everything you’ll need to know about running a group class, but I cannot teach you manners, professionalism, or straight up being a fun human to be around.
