Personal Trainer Application

Apply Below IF…

You’re a Hard-Working, Self-Motivated, Customer Service Focused Person who Loves Fitness, Always Wants to Learn (and Share) More, and Will Excel in an Entrepreneurial Environment.

head shotHello! My name is Ryan Morgan and I am the owner of Pursuit Fitness & Performance. For the past 3 years my staff and I have been educating, motivating, and inspiring our Members to become the best version of themselves through our training, nutrition and lifestyle programs.
Over the last years we’ve had tremendous growth and it’s come time for us to bring on some additional help to get to the “next level.” It’s our goal to help thousands of St. Louis area residents look, feel and perform their best. To do this, we need a strong supporting cast, which includes a SOLID Personal Trainer who is committed to helping our Members be successful. Quite frankly, we need someone who is a rock star coach (you need to bring the best out of people) AND loves working with GROUPS.
As for certifications and previous experience… You don’t need to be a 20-year veteran trainer or have an alphabet soup of letters after your name if you’re a self-motivated person who loves to learn about fitness and all things training. We can develop your training skills (nationally recognized certification IS required). I can’t fix a lousy personality – you need to be great with people, especially a large group.

WARNING: Working in an entrepreneurial environment is much different than working for a “regular” company – we often build the plane as we fly it. Creativity and flexibility are a must! In addition, we’re looking for someone with the following 12 Entrepreneurial Attitudes*:

  • Create Value
  • Take Initiative
  • Focus on Results
