Health Club and Athletic Club Jobs

Health club jobs are perfect for professionals who are passionate about physical fitness. There are also athletic club jobs suited to those who excel at customer service and sales. Whether you enjoy helping others get in shape, or prefer to keep things running smoothly behind the scenes, you will find many health club jobs at Hcareers.

Hcareers is the premier job board for health club employment opportunities. Powerhouses in the industry, including Princeton Club of NY, Granite Club, The Yale Club of NYC and New York Athletic Club, frequently post the hottest health club jobs.

Massage therapists and estheticians will also find health club employment opportunities posted at Hcareers.

Professionals who are passionate about physical fitness and helping clients reach fitness goals may wish to consider a position as a personal trainer or fitness trainer. These types of athletic club jobs provide the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients. Those who enjoy leading groups of clients through workouts should consider health club jobs as group fitness instructors. Available positions often include yoga instructors, Pilates instructors, Zumba instructors, spinning instructors, aerobics instructors and tennis pros. Fitness directors oversee the fitness programs available at the health club. They may be responsible for creating client incentive programs, coordinating class schedules and purchasing equipment as well as hiring, training and directing the health club staff.

Many fitness instructor and personal trainer positions are part time, about 40 percent in fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Because fitness centers and health clubs are open long hours, these positions offer flexible schedules including early morning, night, weekend and even holiday hours. Professionals working health club jobs may increase their hours by seeking employment at several different facilities as well as offering private instruction at clients' homes.

Personal trainer jobs in health clubs require certification. Certification generally involves obtaining a high school diploma and taking CPR training as well as successful passage of a written and practical exam. Degrees in kinesiology, exercise science or physical education may be helpful in securing the best personal and fitness trainer positions. Many group fitness instructors are previous class participants who decide to audition for part time work. They may begin teaching without certification, but most employers encourage or even require eventual certification.

Athletic club jobs such as locker room attendants, receptionists, maintenance, and restaurant positions require no past experience. While other types of health club jobs such as manager and director roles may require degrees or experience in business and operations. Previous sales experience is usually a requirement for membership sales positions.

U.S. News recently included fitness workers in their list of best jobs for 2012 because excellent growth in health club jobs is predicted through 2020. According to the BLS, a 29 percent increase in the employment of fitness workers is anticipated. Professionals planning to pursue health club and athletic club jobs should be friendly, motivating, sensitive, and possess superior personal and communication skills. Having great physical fitness and a desire to help others achieve their fitness goals is also important.

Whether you want to become a health club manager, get your first job as a locker room attendant, work in a club restaurant or one-on-one to train members, you should visit the Hcareers job board regularly during your search for health club jobs.
