Personal Training Careers at Pioneer Performance

Pioneer Performance seeks professional, passionate and qualified L3 Personal Trainers to join our team.

We require individuals committed to continuous professional growth, devoted to their client's success, and eager to collaborate with a team of motivated and like-minded individuals...

Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much.

Over the last 9 years, Pioneer Performance has changed the landscape of Personal Training in the North East.

We have built a fantastic culture of progress, professionalism & intensity without intimidation. This means our clients are delivered a service that is second to none with results far extending what they thought possible.

At the heart of our culture is the Pioneer Performance Team, many of which have been a part of the business for over seven years and counting.

We pride ourselves in providing a structure that works for everyone & minimises many of the common pitfalls plagued by the "rent space" model utilised by commercial gyms.

Our private Quayside facility has been developed to foster the success of every person who walks in the door.

We can teach you all the skills and knowledge you need to be a world-class Personal Trainer.

This is not an easy ride. The road to progression is one that's attempted by many but completed by few. 

At Pioneer Performance, we can teach you all the skills and knowledge you need to be a world-class Personal Trainer. However, on the other hand, tenacity is almost impossible to teach, and it's something you need to possess...

When you work with us, we require you to work hard, not just at helping our clients achieve the outcomes they came to us for, but also at advancing your skills & knowledge.

We take the results and experience of our clients personally, and we expect you to do the same.

Prerequisites for applying to work with us:

To apply for a Personal Trainer position at Pioneer Performance you must:

Have a level 3 Personal Training Qualification.
Have a long-term dedication to your own education & professional development.
Be willing to integrate into a tight-knit team of professionals.
Be heavily invested in your own health and physical progression - you don't need to be a bodybuilder, but we do expect you to be able to demonstrate a love & passion for training. We want you to be a role model of health to your clients.
Have a results-focused mindset whilst also ensuring that clients can enjoy the process.  

Our structure:

Pioneer Performance has career pathways for Full-Time Employed Personal Trainers - where we supply your clients, so you can focus on coaching and delivering an excellent service to your roster of clients. 

But just so you know - we aren't here for short-term relationships... We're just not those types of people. If you apply to work with us, consider this a long-term career option. This is for the benefit of you, us & our clients.

As our business grows & develops, we will have more opportunities become available (of which many of our coaches have already been able to take advantage of). This includes but isn't limited to Facility management, Sales Roles, Mentoring Jr Coaches & being involved in Pioneer Performance Education Camps.
