Watch the video below.

Dear Prospective Fitness Coach,


First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope you have precisely what I need in a fitness coach so we can get started! 

So let me tell you about me, my company and the coaching position.


My name is Tanja Shaw and I run a holistic fitness & lifestyle coaching company called Ascend Fitness+ Lifestyle in Chilliwack, BC.  


My business is dedicated to helping women and men achieve their health and fitness goals through customized nutrition and fitness programs.


And business is growing!


We're looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to start training some of our current clients.


My studio is located on Gaetz St., behind Major Leagues Sports Pub. 


We offer one-on-one customized nutrition and fitness programs, group coaching classes, and nutrition coaching, which educate, motivate, and support men, women, and teens to improve their health and fitness.


We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic full and part time fitness coaches and Kinesiologists to start training some of our current clients.



We mean business and lead the industry - all our personal training staff members are on a competitive base wage plus have incentives and growth opportunities.  You will be compensated fairly, treated fairly, and I will certainly look for ways to pay you more for your efforts if they warrant it. I want someone who enjoys working with people and making a difference in the lives of others…because that’s what we do in my studio.


If you are selected, you'll begin our 3- month trainer Curriculum On-Boarding Program (our version of an in-house certification to make you into an even better coach).

Successful coaches will start part time and build to full time hours. We offer $16-$19/hour to start for all coaching positions, with bonus incentives and education funding (to keep you learning professionally and personally). My studio offers a casual, fun environment, nice training equipment, and the opportunity to learn the inner-workings of a successful personal training studio.


Are you an "A PLAYER"?

At Ascend Fitness we’re ONLY looking for “A Players” to join our team.

“A Players” are people who are committed to excellence in all that they do.

They can get a job anywhere, but they take the time to research the companies they’re considering working for, they’re selective in the interviews they go out on, and they “go the extra mile” in searching for the “right” position because they’re looking for more than a job… they’re looking for a long-term career opportunity.

They’re looking to be part of a team where they can make a positive impact on the world through the work they do WHILE being challenged to grow and become a better version of themselves.

If that doesn't sound like you, then feel free to stop reading this page and close your browser window now. If you think you are, in fact, an “A Player”, then please read on to learn more about the exciting opportunity we have available for the right candidate.



Tasks You’ll Be Expected To Perform

  • Develop comprehensive health and fitness programs for clients. You’ll receive coaching and training on our fitness system and programs, but you’ll have the flexibility to incorporate your training style and knowledge.
  • Tracking client progress. To ensure a client's success in our programs, you'll need to track weekly progress, current successes and challenges, review client nutrition and exercise log worksheets, and more on a weekly basis. It will be your job to hold a client accountable to his/her health and fitness program to ensure the best results possible.
  • Perform fitness evaluations. Ideally, you'll have some fitness assessment skills and can test for: body composition, body weight, girth measurements, blood pressure, heart rate, and various strength and flexibility tests. You do not need previous experience, but if you do, that's a bonus.
  • Coach clients through their program. You'll be responsible for weekly exercise sessions and keeping detailed weekly progress reports on the clients you’re working with. If a client is having challenges throughout his/her program, you'll coach and motivate them, and make appropriate changes to ensure consistent progress.
  • Demonstrate proper exercise instruction. This is a big one. I need you to be able to provide proper coaching, instruction, and motivation during a client training session. You should have a working knowledge of the human body (i.e. muscles, movements, functions, etc.), and be able to provide appropriate exercises for client’s goals.
  • Provide ongoing health and fitness education. Our clients rely on us to service all of their health and fitness needs. It is your job as a fitness coach to provide your clients with health and fitness education on various topics that empower them to lead healthy lives forever.  You'll be provided with educational tools and resources, be expected to study them, and speak about them with your clients. We also spend time covering this in our weekly staff meetings. 

Required Skills


These are the skills you must already have in order to qualify for this position:

  • Good communication skills. You will be talking with my clients, who are VERY important to me. You must be comfortable conversing in-person and on the phone, and know how to conduct yourself professionally and deliver clear instructions to the clients. I’ll teach you everything you need to do during a training session, but I can’t teach you manners and professionalism.
  • People skills and personality. You must LOVE working with people! As mentioned above you must be very comfortable working with people. This is an exciting studio and you must be able to show your clients energy and excitement while working with them.
  • Health and fitness education. You do not need personal training experience, but you should have a working knowledge of health and fitness, and at the minimum, a current personal training certification.    We strongly value a degree in Kinesiology. 

Bonus Skills


If you have these additional skills, your resume will go right to the top of the stack (but if you don’t have these skills, you should still apply).

  • Previous personal training experience (fitness studio, health club, in-home trainer, etc.)
  • Basic nutrition knowledge
  • Kinesiology degree
  • CPR certified
  • Experience in post-rehab, active rehab or medical exercise specialist

Again, thanks very much for your interest,

Owner, Ascend Fitness Inc. 


P.S. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform, 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.


With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. I’m a very positive, upbeat business owner and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate! So submit your information today!
