Sports Facilities Management Advice: Hiring Fitness Instructors

Hiring Fitness Instructors with Sports Facilities Management

A big part of these classes being successful is hiring the right instructors. An instructor can make all the difference when it comes to attracting and retaining guests who visit your complex to take classes. Sports Facilities Management specializes in program development and staffing, so contact us today for help with your sports complex. Read on to learn more about hiring the right fitness instructor.

Make Sure They’re Qualified

The first and most important aspect of a fitness instructor is their qualifications. Most fitness practices require the instructor to be certified, as is the case with yoga, pilates, etc. This may seem obvious, but it’s important to point out. Guests won’t take your fitness offerings seriously if the instructors in charge don’t have the resume to be leading a class.

Make Sure They’re a Good Fit

By the time you’re ready to offer fitness classes, you’ve more than likely developed a company culture and policies. You want to make sure whoever you’re hiring will be able to integrate seamlessly and get along with the rest of the staff. Although they will only be there certain times of the week, you still don’t want someone who isn’t a team player.

Hire Someone Who Can Market Themselves

The best fitness instructors will not only have a great personality and the right qualifications, they’ll have the ability to bring clients in and retain them. If a trainer knows how to market themselves, the spots in their class will always be filled, meaning they’ll be bringing in more money for your sports complex. Make sure you support your fitness instructors in their efforts too. A lot of value is added if you and your instructor are able to collaborate on your marketing efforts.

Make Sure You’re Prepared for the Hiring Process

If you’re fielding interviews from highly qualified fitness instructors, you need to be prepared on your end. A top fitness instructor will expect to be able to hold their classes in high-quality facilities. You’ll also need to make sure you know exactly what you’re looking for.
