Personal Trainer - Illinois (Part-time)

Job Summary

As a Kuna Personal Trainer, you have the opportunity to empower clients to become better versions of themselves. At the center of every client relationship is a deep understanding of their obstacles and goals. At Kuna, we strive to be with our clients at every step of their fitness journey. 
Personal Trainers will transform clients by creating personalized fitness plans that factor in the lifestyle of their clients. Personal Trainers will be expected to plan, implement, and guide exercise regimens, and motivate clients to succeed in achieving their goals. Trainers will have excellent customer service and communication skills.
As a digital service, you have flexibility in the location you train your clients. During an initial client assessment, you’ll establish an ideal training location.

During the consultation, PTs are expected to conduct  detailed discovery to better learn about where our clients are, and where they’d like to go. By listening to our clients, PTs will create personalized coaching plans, motivate and hold clients accountable through their fitness journey.

We welcome you and your client to identify a location that works best - including but not limited to a park, your/their home, or a private gym. If you need access to a private gym, please let us know! We would be happy to connect you with options that will work best for you and your clients.
