P.S. - This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Golden State Fitness & Performance is everything to me. We have a family and team like atmosphere where there is NO competition for clients because we are here for them and as a team and family we work together and support each other in order to assure that our clients receive the highest quality of service and reach their goals. If you perform, you will be rewarded. If you have great client retention you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and taking care of our clients. If that's you, I promise that our base hourly rate of $15-$25/session is only the starting point. I recognize and reward performance!
With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go long way in my book. I'm a very positive, upbeat person and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you are honest, and driven to succeed, you're definitely a candidate!
