Example Cover Letter - Personal Trainer Position

Below is a cover letter we had to write for our internship class when I was finishing my undergrad.  Yes, I got this job, and yes you can use this as a template for a trainer/managers position in a gym you are interested in becoming an employee.  One of the best suggestions I can give in regards to job searching in the fitness industry, is to A) keep a portfolio of testimonials (pictures help) for clients you have worked with and B) apply even if there is not a position open.  Four out of Five locations I have worked did not have a position open when I applied.  However, if you can show an employer that you can provide their business with additional value, everything will fall into place.

Dear Mr Dupont
Re: Personal Trainer Position

I wish to apply for the position of personal trainer at New Directions Health and Fitness Club as advertised in The Perry County News.

I have been working as a personal trainer for the past two years, recruiting clients and working with them to obtain their goals and maintain motivation. I have a proven track record in retaining clients on a long-term basis with solid results. I have experience in sport specific, circuit training and group fitness and specialize in functional movements, and injury management and prevention. I have a solid knowledge of anatomy, kinesiology and exercise physiology graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science, while minoring in business administration, psychology and health education teaching.

I am passionate about the fitness industry and am committed to improving the health and wellbeing of individuals. I approach my work with a high level of initiative, reliability, empathy and determination. I have outstanding communication skills and work well both autonomously and in team environments.

My qualifications, skills, experience and enthusiasm for the industry would make me a valuable trainer for your growing company. I am excited about the opportunity of joining New Directions Health and Fitness Club and look forward to meeting with you to discuss the position further.

Kind regards

Travis Jones
