Dear Prospective BlackBox Coach:
First of all thank you for your interest in a career at BlackBox Fort Worth. We are excited to introduce you to our staff and members as part of our team. I am excited to get to know you and teach you the BlackBox Method.
Let me start by telling you a bit about BlackBox Fort Worth, myself, and the position available.
My name is Dutch Lowy and I own and operate BlackBox Fort Worth, a strength and health facility in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas. We are dedicated to helping people achieve levels of health and wellness they never before thought possible.
We have been open in Fort Worth for more than 9 years now and have already grown out of our first location and into our bigger space at 3701 Lovell across the street from Railhead Barbeque.
I am looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients, coach classes, and build a sustainable life as a professional coach!!
BlackBox offers several different programs including: one on one private training, small group private training, group coaching classes, and weightlifting. We initiate every new relationship in the gym with an intro session in which we determine which program prospective clients will fit best. This is also an opportunity to connect on a personal level and really understand each member’s goals and what drives them. This personal connection is very important to our method and something we take very seriously.
This is where the idea for a coach for life blossoms. Both the client and coach will benefit from this theory. A coach for life not only represents the client for a lifetime for health and fitness coaching, but also represents my commitment to you, the coach, as a professional building a business and life in the gym.
If hired, you will begin by shadowing other coaches and myself to learn by experiencing our method in practice. This generally lasts 4-6 weeks. After this initial paid time, you will be given full control of clients coaching, programming, and lifestyle development programs. At the moment, your workload will include 20-25 hours/week. This will include coaching and administrative duties, such as client relation management, cleaning, program design, and blog content generation.
Our unique approach to coach pay will allow you, the coach, to earn and make a professional wage while having the autonomy to direct your own schedule. We pay all coaches as employees which prevents you from having to withhold your own taxes.
As a small business, we have the freedom to flex and evolve. This allows us to start new programs that you may be passionate about. These new program can be very lucrative to you and are a great way to show initiative. We support your passion and will do what it takes to help you be successful.
Here are some things we are looking for and a brief job description:
- Fitness Professional that loves working with people and wants to make fitness a career
Job Description: Strength & Conditioning Coach/Personal Trainer
- Design individualized programs and conduct personal training
