If You Have Enthusiasm, a Positive Attitude, and a Few Basic Sports Performance/Fitness Skills, We Might Have a Fun and Fulfilling Sports Performance/Fitness Training Internship or Position Just For You!

Please read all of the information below and answer the required questions in order to be considered for any openings.

Dear Prospective Fitness Trainer,

Thanks for taking the time to apply.  It is our hope that you have precisely what we need as a Fitness Trainer and/or a Sports Performance Coach.  We are always accepting applications at TREO Sports & Fitness, located in West Seneca, NY.

Let me tell you about myself, my company, and the coaching position.

My name is Zack Griffey and I run a sports performance and fitness coaching company called TREO Sports & Fitness in West Seneca, NY.  My business is dedicated to helping men, women, children, and teenagers achieve their health, fitness, and sports performance goals through our personalized comprehensive fitness and sports performance programs.

We currently offer private, Personalized Sports Performance and Fitness programs, Group Sports Performance and Fitness programs, Adult Fitness (Group Personal Training and Personal Training), Kettlebell Skills & Conditioning, and MB101 (Muscle Building 101). Our average client begins with a 12-week training package which includes: nutrition counseling, program design, pre and post assessments, and weekly training sessions.

If you are hired for a coaching position, you'll begin coaching clients at a time and day specific to the clients needed to be serviced.

You will get several clients starting out depending on your level of experience, credentials, and any groups you may be coaching. You will be paid as an independent contractor, and have the opportunity to move up after a 90-day trial period.  Again, depending on your experience and credentials.  Our location offers a casual, fun environment, and great training equipment.

You will find me to be very fair, respectful, and appreciative.  I like having fun and providing highly valuable sports and fitness services and products. You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly, and I will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it.  We want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others... because that's what we do in my business.

Tasks You'll Be Expected to Perform

  • Develop Comprehensive Health & Fitness Programs for Clients: You'll receive coaching and training on our training system and programs and you'll have flexibility to share your training style and knowledge.
  • Track Client Progress: In order to ensure a client's success in our program, you'll need to track weekly progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets and more on a weekly basis. It will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her health and fitness performance program to ensure the best results possible.
  • Perform Fitness or Performance Assessments: Ideally, you'll have some assessment skills and can test for body composition, body weight, girth measurements, heart rate, conduct a FMS, and provide various speed, agility, and dynamic movement assessments for our athletes. You do not need previous experience as you will be trained in our system, bit if you do that's a bonus!
  • Coach Clients Through Their Program: You'll be responsible for weekly exercise sessions and keeping detailed weekly progress reports on the clients you're working with. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her program, you'll coach and motivate the client and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress. We emphasize a team dynamic at TREO which means that no trainer is solely responsible for a client's results, the whole is always greater than its parts.
  • Demonstrate Proper Exercise Instruction: This is a big one. I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during ant training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (ie. muscles, movements, functions, etc.) and be able to provide appropriate exercises specific to the client's goals.
  • Provide Ongoing Health and Fitness Education: Our clients rely on us to service all of their health and fitness needs. It is your job as a fitness or sports performance coach to provide our clients with health and fitness education on various topics that will empower them to lead healthy lives forever. You'll be provided with educational tools and resources, and will be expected to study them and speak about them with your clients. We also spend time covering this during our staff meetings.

Required Skills

These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:

  • Good Communication Skills: You will be talking with my clients, who are VERY important to me. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone and know how to conduct yourself professionally, and deliver clear instructions to the clients. I'll teach everything you need to do during a training session, but I can't teach you manners and professionalism.
  • People Skills and Personality: you must LOVE working with people! As mentioned about you must be very comfortable working with people. You must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
  • Health and Fitness Education: You do not need personal training experience for our personal training position, yet sports performance training is highly encouraged for our sports performance coaching position. You should have a working knowledge of health, fitness, and performance and you must have a respected certification.
    A current CPR certification is required

Bonus Skills

If you have these additional skills, your resume will go right to to the top of the stack (but if you don't have these skills, you should still apply because these are not mandatory):

  • Previous sports performance and/or personal training experience (Fitness studio, health club, in-home trainer, etc.)
  • Basic nutrition knowledge
  • National certification
  • Health Science degree
