PERSONAL TRAINER WANTED – UP TO $500 SIGNING BONUS!

Hello, Personal Trainers,

Ever worked for one of those fitness outfits that prioritizes high-pressure sales over what’s best for clients?

I did, and I dreaded going to work every day.

In 2006, I opened Ultimate U Total Health with my partner, Zoe Guirlinger so we could be better. Turns out, good things happen when you listen, and respect the needs of each client.

At Ultimate U, there’s no pressure to buy–or buy into diet and fitness industry hype. We don’t push fads, gimmicks or any research-disproved “false promises.”

Here, we prioritize people over dollars. We focus on whole-person needs, then work every day to meet them.

Here, we think big because our collaborative approach changes lives.

Our thriving full-service wellness center offers personal training, athletic training, chiropractic medicine, massage therapy, NeurOptimalTM neurofeedback, BEMER, weight loss and wellness coaching, stress management and more.

Our client, Bonnie Ritchie puts it this way: “I love that I have a ‘team’ here. My trainer, chiropractor and massage therapist all work together for my benefit.”

One of our elite trainers, Krista Heisler, describes Ultimate U like this:

“It’s not a cutthroat atmosphere like a lot of gyms—there’s a lot of camaraderie here. We all want what’s best for our clients, and we work together to take care of them.”

Sound like your kind of place? Then, check out our Personal Trainer job opening below.
