Work at 5th Element Wellness

It seems that most of the fitness industry chases finances more than it focuses on helping people get results – this doesn’t happen at 5EW.

We’re always interested in applicants who have a thirst for personal growth, but first and foremost, you must be motivated and have a deep sense of care to help others above all else.

Only if you are aligned to the above keep reading.

Why 5th Element Wellness?

  1. We are Melbourne’s premier Personal Training and Yoga facility.
  2. This is not a rent based Contractor model. Instead, we’ll pay you an allocated amount for each PT session you conduct. Each trainer is allocated a level depending on their qualifications and experience.
  3. We invest in your training and skill development. Literally. Every week and on international courses.
  4. No prospecting for your own clients – just focus on getting your clients results with spectacular service.

About the Personal Training Role:

You will be allocated clients based on your time availability and your skill to handle their circumstances. Your job will be to motivate them to continue doing PT with you and up-sell them for more PT sessions ongoing. So there may be a build-up phase within your initial couple of months.

You should also support and encourage the companies approach of holistic methods such as reviewing nutrition, hormonal/blood profiling, supplementation, and where appropriate recommend use of the Infrared Sauna, Yoga class, and Strongman sessions.

Depending on your skill set other tasks may include:

  • Conducting Strongman classes
  • Providing member service on reception
  • Performing clinical assessments
  • Reviewing blood marker profiles

Nearly everyone who starts with us comes in as a Level 1 trainer. You will then be able to progress to higher levels depending on the quality of your PT sessions and member results. So be prepared to start from the bottom and work your way up.
