Events are a great goal-setting opportunity for our clients, and our team makes the most of it! From road races to ski days, we take our clients outside to get active every chance we get.
We empower our team with events funding and logistical support so you can create and lead events you want to do with your clients, because we know that the bond you'll form with your client as you cross that first finish line together, or reach that 'impossible' peak, is truly irreplaceable.
We don't just do events - we create unparalleled experiences. Our Professional Training Coaches have the opportunity to plan and lead incredible trips with their clients, even to international destinations. Our trips are exciting, challenging and unforgettable - and the leader goes for free!
Our teammates have been biking in the Moabe, hiked the Inca Trail in Peru, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, and toured Iceland, to name just a few of these incredible experiences.
I have been working at Innovative Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)
I have been working at Innovative Fitness in Port Moody for 6 years now. I actually started at Innovative Fitness in Port Moody as part of a Co-op practicum placement. It was a great opportunity to use my degree and the knowledge I had gained over the 4 year program in the real world. Something I admire about Innovative Fitness is their role in educating. Whether that is with current students and Co-op opportunities (which they still do now) or professional development with their current coaching staff. They provide an environment for self improvement and growth. You have the opportunity to find your passion and your niche and make a career out of it.
Looking back at my time with Innovative Fitness Port Moody I have nothing bad to say. This is an amazing environment to be able to work. A lot of personal training jobs are isolated. You may be a one man company or renting space from a gym. Here you are a team. You may work one-on-one with your clients but you learn as a team, grow as a team and excel as a team.
Innovative Fitness is the best at what they do - premium personal training. And it isn't just limited to the 4 walls of the studio. Destinations and events are a huge part of the culture. Not only will it push clients to get outside of their comfort zone it will push coaches to do the same. Some of my best memories are not within the IF walls. Its out in the trails completing pushing myself and my clients to complete an event. Opportunities to travel internationally to do the same. You will make lasting memories and relationships if your dive into the culture.
If you want to be a leader in the health and fitness industry and work with the best brand in the business apply now.
You will get out what you put in. It won't be easy to become a great coach. You have to be willing to put the work in early on in your career to truly excel. Jump in with two feet and adopt the IF culture! If you do that, there are endless possibilities and you will enjoy your time with this brand and this company.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Innovative Fitness (Vancouver, BC) in August 2019.
Do not waste your time! I had given up two other job opportunities and nine hours of my time for interviews, testing and gym floor testing to be offered the role. After which and signing contracts with a start date just days away, I was sent on a First Aid course (at my expense) as they would not accept my very recent and in-depth UK NHS document. After this again I had another hurdle. HR 'apparently' informed the manager to inform me that they want to see more continuous development from my Personal Training course in 2014. I have only been studying a degree for the past 4 years and have been accepted onto a Masters in 2020 at Oxford, England. This still wasn't enough and they then inform me that they can not insure me and my qualifications yet the gym has numerous people from all over the world. It was a cover up, a lie and will be seeking legal action.
