Best Personal Training Job in Cedar  Rapids

Personal Trainer (Part-time or Full Time)

Are you a Personal trainer or an aspiring trainer?


Would you like to work at a gym that’s changing the way fitness is done?


Hi! My name is Brian Fischer and I own one of the most unique gyms to work at in Cedar Rapids, IA – Edge Fitness.


All day I get to help people become the strongest version of themselves by working with them improve to their movement, nutrition, recovery and mindset.


It’s truly rewarding work that I’ve been blessed to be doing for close to two decades.


As most people get little to no fulfillment from their job, I get the opportunity to help people get fit healthy and strong…every day.


Some great news… as most gyms are slowing down, we are growing!


We recently expanded into a 4,400 square foot gym-clinic facility, along with a second location where we provide training, and we need a new trainer to help us meet the large demand of people that need our help.


Over the years I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best coaches and therapists and am ready to share the knowledge and skills that I use with my gym member’s, clients and athletes with you!


When you work with us, you’ll be on the front lines of helping to continue to build our business and using the latest training techniques in the fitness industry.


Over the past few years, Edge Fitness has grown to service close to 20,000 coach-led training sessions a year and we’d love for you to help us continue to make that number of people we’ve been able to help through our coaching services grow even bigger!


What's in it for you


A Career: I’ve been training for close to 20 years while most trainers only last 2-3. Our recent expansion has us needing other career-minded and motivated trainers who enjoy showing up day in and day out happy as can be to be able to do such rewarding work.


Quick Start: You will start with clients that are ready and waiting for you to work with them, that way you get to dive in and focus on what you do best. Don’t worry if you’re new to training, we’ll be here to help you as you get started with training, shadowing and mentoring!


Continuing Education: Because I have had such amazing opportunities to learn from others and believe in being a student as well as a teacher in order to do my best and do it for a long time, you will have access to a vast learning library and get help with your continuing education costs so you can keep learning and growing to be your best!


Part of the Tribe: You're going to get to be part of a growing and diverse team and network of leading professionals in our area and you will be the leader and go-to trainer on helping to build an all-star team.


Money: It’s really awesome to do what we do but we’re certainly not going to ask you to work for free. Comp ranges from $20-$30 per hour depending on the knowledge, experience and motivation you bring to the team.


Benefits: We provide continuing education assistance, gym membership and training, mentorship, referral network and flexible scheduling. As Edge Fitness grows, so will your benefits with future benefits of Health Insurance, an investment matching, paid vacation becoming available as we hit our goals as a company by helping our clients hit theirs in and out of the gym!


Opportunity: With the opportunity to become our lead, go-to trainer, helping to grow a successful company that strives to meet all the needs of our members, clients and athletes, the right person will also have the opportunity to make more money by taking part in the business side of things.


What we’re looking for:

  • Career minded: We’ve been doing this for a long time and believe that health and fitness professionals are just that, professionals. We want others on our team who believe they can make a real difference in our business and in their clients and athlete’s lives.

  • Positive Attitude and Energy: We bring our best every day; having a positive attitude and energy is not an added bonus, it’s a job requirement for us.

  • Great with People: We want someone that is outstanding with people, professional and personal. You need to love working with people and be completely excited about helping others achieve their goals.

  • NO DRAMA: We run a drama free gym and want to keep it that way.

  • Hard Worker: We want someone that’s not afraid to work hard, while working smart and working right.

  • Be a Student and Teacher: You don’t have to be the world’s smartest, best or most experienced trainer to work here but you need to have an incredible thirst to become a better trainer, every day, so you can teach people how to be better themselves.

  • Be a Student of the Game: We practice what we preach here and strive to lead by example for our members, clients and athletes. We don’t expect everyone to be an elite athlete or fitness model; we’re real people living real lives, and we’re committed to walking the talk.

  • Certified/Degree: A Personal Trainer Certification or a College Degree is strongly preferred but NOT required to apply. We are big fans of CFSC, EXOS, L.I.F.T., FMS, SFMA, TPI, PRI but we’re also excited to see what you can bring to our team to help us be better.

  • Experience: 1-3 years’ experience is preferred but NOT required, if you’re totally new to this field please do not let that prevent you from applying. If the above character qualities describe you, we can help you with the rest!
