Receive Curated Short Lists of Trainers, Instructors, and Coaches and Pay As You Go

PHOENIX, Ariz. (FEBRUARY 2023) The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), the global leader in online fitness and wellness education, brings to market a one-of-a-kind Recruiting Solution for fitness facilities looking to hire trainers, instructors or coaches, and for trainers looking to develop a career path.

For the first time ever, clubs, studios, and fitness facilities can tap into over 5000 highly engaged recently certified ISSA members and current students, receive curated candidate lists based on skills, geography, and opt-in-date and pay as they go with an on-demand portal. There is no long-term payment commitment or contract needed.

“This is a complete game changer for anyone looking to hire fitness professionals,” said Craig Bradley, ISSA’s Chief Growth Officer. “Connecting to candidates has never been more efficient or cost effective.”

Adding to that, says Johnny August, Manager of Strategic Business Partnerships, "We are in a climate where hiring needs ebb and flow with the pace of new member enrollments, member traffic and personal training penetration. We acknowledge that operators/managers may need to shift gears quickly. ISSA’s new Recruiting Solution solves for that, offering an on-demand pay-as-you-go recruiting option that is also highly customized.”

This streamlined process instantly connects facilities to certified trainers, instructors and coaches, fitness pros with extensive education and unique specializations, and students currently enrolled in courses, offering talent that’s just the right fit for any employment opportunity.

“We’re trying to make the world a better, healthier place by training and certifying fitness professionals.  We have to connect the fitness pro to meaningful work – or, our job isn’t done.” said ISSA CEO, Andrew Wyant. “ISSA is the matchmaker here that connects the two, helping both parties. That’s why we are thrilled to launch our new Recruiting Solution.  Together, we can solve the fitness industry staffing challenge and connect the professional to the job of their dreams.”

This program is designed for any facility looking to hire a fitness professional. Interested parties can receive an initial free trial of curated candidates today, by filling out their information here
