We’re keen to challenge any perceptions that fitness, or a career in fitness, is solely a domain for younger people. We know that many older people have the skills, motivation and enthusiasm to guide and inspire our members to transform their lives through improved fitness levels.
We believe any age is the right age to pursue a career in fitness and we are particularly keen to encourage people in their 50’s and beyond to join our team. So whether you’re looking for a change of career, or have already retired but feeling restless, come and explore what flexible opportunities await you.
Applicants do not need to have fitness training experience, but they will need to have achieved the entry Level 2 Health & Fitness qualification. Advice and tips about how to study for this are available at www.davidlloyd.co.uk/active-ageing.
We also offer Apprenticeships to enable a L2 Health & Fitness Coach become a Personal Trainer, offering one to one coaching, within a year.
