Personal Trainer Interview

Personal Trainer
Phoenix, AZ

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Life Time Fitness in November 2012.

Interview Details – Three interviews. First, the department head. Second, your team leader within the personal training department. Lastly, the General Manager of the club.
A very easy interview process, especially meeting the GM. The department head is only looking to get more people onboard and actually will sell you on the position. If it doesn't work out they just hire a replacement. Turnover is crazy in this industry.

Interview Question – The "most difficult" questions come from your team leader who will take your through the club's "training solutions" consultation in order to get to know you and how your versed in health and fitness. They might also ask for your expertise on program design or nutrition.   Answer Question
