    We’re Hiring!

    Position: Coach

    Have you heard about this thing called COVID19?  Things are looking a lot more positive right now and we are going to need some new team members when we re-open.  Please read the below position details/application instructions CAREFULLY and make sure you have ‘covered all bases’ before submitting your application.

    We are looking for a coach that can come in and coach 15-25 hours per week of Boxing for Fitness/Strength & Conditioning classes + additional personal training hours on top of that. We believe that the best way to make a career out of being a coach is through a combination of personal training, group classes, and taking on 1 or 2 roles outside of coaching – such as including nutrition coaching, session programming, organising gym events, contributing on social media, etc. We are seeking an individual who aligns with our mission and core values and aspires to become a full-time coach, whether they are ready now, or believe they can work their way towards this role in the coming years.

    Round 1 Fitness Mission Statement

    ‘We Help Change Lives’

    Round 1 Fitness exists for one reason – to constantly challenge and lead our members to achieve the highest level of sustainable fitness they can reach. We have an obligation to our members to provide a safe training environment, with dedicated knowledgeable staff. We strive to help as many clients as we can to reach their full potential and achieve their goals and beyond.

    Round 1 Fitness Rules of Coaching

    – Stay up late or get up early, farming articles and doing research.
    – Do not ask what you can get, ask how you can HELP.
    – Put out content, often for free, simply because they NEED to.
    – Listen first, speak last, speak honestly and speak simply.
    – Have clients/athletes thank them for becoming not just better at their sport, but better at life.
    – Put in the hours when nobody’s watching them… or paying them.
    – Coach the person first and the movement second.
    – Have long lines of well wishers at your funeral.
    – Get to work early and stay late.
    – Make sure the facility/equipment stays clean and the client/athlete is meeting the agreed upon expectations
    – Have boundaries and take time for themselves daily so that they can be better for others and avoid burnout.

    So with all of that said, what’s “The Golden Rule”? You must care about the person in front of you. The results THEY get are why we are all here.
