Strength and Fitness Coach (Adult and Youth)

Freedom Fitness
Kilcoole, County Wicklow
€20–€30 an hour - Part-time


Kilcoole, County Wicklow

Full job description

We are looking for a competent, fun, kind, and outgoing Strength and Fitness Coach (working with both adults and youths) to join our pro team.

About Freedom Fitness

A strength studio like no other, Freedom Fitness runs small group coaching sessions for adults, teens, kids, and new mums. We pride ourselves on our welcoming, non-intimidating and inclusive environment we've created. Our philosophy is a simple one. Get strong to be strong, and to live a longer, fuller, and better quality life.

​We don't take ourselves too seriously in Freedom Fitness, but we take what we do extremely serious. The ability to create a positive environment for our members to both train and thrive in is non-negotiable. A genuine passion for fitness and helping people of all ages and abilities to develop their physical abilities, self-confidence, and overall health, is a must.

About Our Youth Gym

The work we do in the gym is not just for the sake of the youths physical health and strength, but it also contributes hugely towards building confidence, mental resilience, self esteem, and an overall positive body image.

We absolutely love to see how progress in the gym can help to make progress in other areas of their lives outside of the gym. Especially for our youth, when it comes to building confidence and self esteem.

We want everyone who walks through our doors to leave more confident than when they walked in. Oh and in a better mood too!

Job Brief

This is very much a hands on coaching role, where your main objective is to create a positive environment for our members. You will be working with a range of levels and abilities so technical proficiency, ability to think on your feet, and excellent communication skills are a must. You will also be involved behind the scenes, where you will assist with lead management for new joiners.

Expansion Opportunity

For the right candidate, there is a potential opportunity to expand this role to a full-time position over the course of the summer to cover maternity leave from August/September. This could be an excellent chance for further professional growth and development.

​Requirements and skills we are looking for include:

  • ​Bachelor's degree in Exercise Science, Physical Education, or a related field preferred.
  • Certification in relevant fitness training or coaching (youth fitness specialization is a plus).
  • Proven experience working with kids and teens in a fitness or coaching capacity.
  • Experience in developing and implementing age-appropriate fitness programs and curricula.
  • Knowledge of child and adolescent physical, cognitive, and emotional development to tailor programs to different age groups.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills to effectively interact with members, kids and teens, their parents, and your team mates.
  • Ability to explain and demonstrate exercises and concepts in a clear, engaging, and age-appropriate manner.
  • Patience and the ability to connect with and motivate kids and teens, understanding that they may have varying levels of enthusiasm and skill.
  • Flexibility to adjust coaching methods and routines to accommodate different skill levels and individual needs.
  • Ability to plan and organize group sessions, set goals, and track progress.
  • Commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of all members.
  • Be a positive and inspiring role model for younger members.
  • Collaborative mindset to work effectively with other coaches and parents to create a supportive and inclusive gym environment.
  • High energy levels and enthusiasm for engaging and motivating young members.
  • Availability for 3-4 hours per day for two early weekday mornings (from 6am), Tuesday evening (from 3.30pm), and occasional holiday cover.

Join Us

We are a vibrant and growing facility, so this is an excellent opportunity for the right person to grow and expand right alongside us. Remuneration and bonus packages will be discussed in more detail after the initial interview stage.

​If you think you fit the bill then we would love to hear from you. Please express your interest, along with a CV and cover letter explaining why you are a great fit for Freedom Fitness. Please include any relevant certifications or experiences that make you stand out as a candidate.

See you in the gym, perhaps,
