Health and wellbeing
King’s Sport employ a number of qualified Health & Fitness Coaches on a casual basis to work across all of our gyms, providing a world class service to all of it’s members. You’ll be responsible for ensuring each and every member feels valued and wanting to come to come back, an ambassador for our gym experience providing a natural and friendly environment for everyone to enjoy.
Our Gym Receptionists are on hand at peak times in the gyms, to cover the reception desk and deal with customer queries as they come in, ensuring potential members are aware of how to join our facilities and acting as a concierge to all guests as they come in to our buildings. You don’t need any qualifications or prior experience, just a willingness to be an ambassador for King’s Sport and everything we do.
We’re dedicated to providing students at King’s with the opportunity to develop skills that will benefit them throughout their careers whilst studying at university. If you have a passion for health & fitness but no qualifications to apply for one of our Health & Fitness Coach roles, we can support you through the process and assign a current coach as a mentor to your progress.
What does this mean? All we ask is for 100 hours of volunteer time on our gym floor or reception and in return, we’ll pay for a Level 2 in Gym Instruction as well as 1 of 3 CPD Courses in Spin, Boxing or Les Mills GRIT.
