Candidate's Resume

 

Overview

Have worked for 12 and a half years in the Fitness Industry in various roles; management, Group Fitness, Personal Training, Gym Instructing and administration.

I have previously worked as the Operations Manager for Fenix Fitness Club Geelong where I was responsible for overseeing the club's reception, cleaning and creche staff.  My duties included overseeing building maintenance, rostering, training and mentoiring the reception team, retail management and reporting, pay roll and HR responsibilities, rostering cleaning staff. 

My passion has always been Group Fitness and I am currently the Group Fitness manager at Fenix Fitness Geelong and have had this role for 2 years.  I have a strong relationship with my team and have mentoired some amazing instructors.  I hope that I continue to make Group Fitness grow in our industry and see my life's ambition as being dedicated to lifting the standard of Group Fitness through quality control and education and hope that I manage to inspire others to develop a passion for fitness.

- I currently manage a team of 30+ instructors and have successfully launched 5 brand new training programs to our club's timetable in my 2 years as Group Fitness Manager.  I have also mentoired several new instructors who now take successful classes at our club and throughout the Geelong community and who have amazing potential to be outstanding role models for the fitness industry.

- I have coordinated several club events including new program launches, quarterly Les Mills launch classes, member's days and club Open Days (many of these events required me to organise DJ's, lighting, dance groups, rock climbing walls, club decorations and advertising.
