pumped to make a difference
As a Kinesiology graduate, you are in a truly unique position to make a substantial difference not only in the lives of your clients, but in your community as well. You understand the benefits of movement. You know that getting someone active will increase his or her health, self-esteem, self-image and efficacy. You understand that being able to move will make your community a better place. From fun runs to pick up hockey games, a great quality of life and community require movement. In todayâ€™s world, over 80 per cent of our population is considered sedentary and overweight. This is resulting in healthcare issues and a lack of community. Kids are not playing outside; they are watching TV or playing online. Adults are not able to keep up with the daily stresses of life and are suffering the consequences of diabetes, heart disease and other ailments. In short, your community needs you. Fitness professionals are the front line of healthcare. You will be the first line of defence. If we can get more people moving, less people will need to go to the emergency room. People will feel better and be happier. You have the power to create change. You can create happiness!
without undue stress, or hit that golf ball farther, or win their first triathlon, or even win their first Olympic medal, is something to be very proud of. How does it work? When you are interviewed, you will be required to pass a practical exam focusing on your technical knowledge and interpersonal skills. You will then be registered for our week long Centralized Training Program, where we teach you the ins and outs of the fitness industry. You will also be given priority enrolment into our exclusive continuing education program, where you can learn from industry experts about the latest training methodologies. Most of our courses are complimentary for our employees and are accredited by various certification agencies. You will be assigned to a mentor, a senior employee, who has built a successful practice. Your mentor is someone who is still working directly in the field. They, along with your manager, will support you along the way.
Did you know that the fitness industry is growing at an incredible rate? Did you know there are more opportunities to have a long, fulfilling and successful career in the fitness industry than ever before?
You will receive an initial client base. You can then grow that client base to as large as you want. You can create the schedule you want. Balance work with family and friends. You can develop a group practice, where your clients form a community and enjoy exercising together under your tutelage.
International Fitness Holdings Inc. (IFH) runs 24 health clubs across Alberta under the World Health, Spa Lady and Bankers Hall Club brands. We serve all demographics from first time exercisers to elite athletes, students to CEOs, young to old, male and female, all walks of life.
You can earn a significant income. An average first year employee will earn approximately $40 - $45,000. An exceptional first year employee can earn over $80,000. Some of our fourth-year employees earn well over $100,000. You can do this while impacting peopleâ€™s lives!
A career as a fitness professional with IFH is rewarding. Not only financially but personally. Knowing that you are the reason your client can now chase after their grandchildren without pain, or walk up a flight of stairs
So, if you are the type of person who wants to make a difference, have fun, earn a great living and be part of a dynamic, growing company in a great industry, please drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.
