If this sounds appealing to you, the next step to joining our team is to apply for our Career Integration Program here.
We carefully review all applications and those candidates who are selected to start the program, can expect 3 phases:
Phase 1: Member Experience
You’ll be given a Fuel Unlimited membership for up to 3 months. During your this phase, you’ll be expected to attend a minimum of 3 classes/week, participate in events, take part in feedback sessions and ask lots of questions! These 3 months will allow you to gain a better understanding of how we work, while also allowing for both of us to further evaluate our interest and capabilities.
Phase 2: Integration
If the Member Experience is successful and you are accepted into Phase 2 (and you want to continue😀), you will start leading classes! We will start off having you shadow some of our other trainers during their classes, then gradually leading components of a class yourself, to a full class and then final review. This is a huge learning phase and the most exciting! The timing of this phase typically lasts around one month.
Phase 3: Career!
Phase 3 is all about proceeding with an official offer and agreeing on things like compensation, schedules, and getting you familiar with our systems, and everything else needed to release you into the wild. This phase typically includes a few one-hour meetings to review all, then you’re into the full swing of things!
- Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology or equivalent University Degree. If these aren’t attained, then a very strong case why you don’t believe you need them should be made.
- DTS Level 1 Certification– or registered prior to the end of the career phase.
- Physical ability to meet our fitness and conditioning standards.
- Confident and outgoing personality.
- Passion for all things fitness (duh!)
