Job Description

David Lloyd have a great opportunity for you to become a fitness coach within their Centre. You will be working towards a Level 3 Personal training enhanced and your training will be provided by Lifetime Training.


Are you looking for a new direction or a change of career? Or maybe you are already passionate about a career in Fitness?

Why not consider joining our team as part of our ‘Step into Fitness’ Apprenticeship programme. This programme is open to all candidates aged 18-64, yes that’s right, any age is the right age for an apprenticeship!

We are truly excited to be able to offer you the chance to join our fitness teams with a structured development programme to support you in the role as a Health and Fitness Coach.

This comprehensive work-based programme to help you develop your skills and provide you training and support so that long term you can develop yourself in this role. The programme will provide you with a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Personal training on completion.  Your training programme will take 12 to 15 months to complete and does include the level 3 CIMSPA certificate as part of the training. This is in addition to access to training and development from our unique ‘Heath & Fitness Career Path’.

 As our Health and Fitness Coach you will use your ability to build rapport with our members to deliver fantastic customer service and gym engagement.

This is a service-based role where you will:

  • Deliver Gym floor classes
  • Family Products
  • Drive gym engagement through the roof!
  • You will be our gym floor role model in setting the service standards bar very high

Don’t worry - you don’t need lots of experience, if you have a ‘REPS’ or ‘CIMSPA’ recognised Level 2 Fitness qualification, then great! If not, we can support you to achieve this alongside your apprenticeship. We just need you to have bags of enthusiasm and passion and we will take care of the rest! We like to think we have the best environment, the best equipment and most importantly, the best people in the industry. We believe any age is the right age, so whether you are looking to kick start your career with us for the first time or if you are now retired and looking to stay active to inspire others, we want to hear from you.

You will need to be fully flexible on shift patterns as our members like to train day and night and it goes without saying that we want you to be passionate about health and fitness. We will provide you with a state-of-the-art environment to work and play and you will have access to the best equipment the industry has to offer. We will invest our time in you and take you through our carefully thought out ‘Health and Fitness Career Path’ that will show you how you can learn, develop, and progress your way through the ranks.

We might be biased, but we think working for us is brilliant! As a team member you can enjoy great benefits including FREE Club memberships, flexible shift patterns and a healthy hourly pay rate, irrelevant of age! We like to think of ourselves as one big family and we LOVE what we do, that’s why we are really proud to be a ‘Sunday Times Best Big Company to Work For’ (three years running)!
