Fitness trainers wanted.

Fancy an energetic career change? Fitness chain seeks instructors aged over 55.

By: High50

In a valiant attempt to encourage more older people into its gyms, David Lloyd Leisure has announced a recruitment drive for suitably mature fitness trainers.  It has committed to having a Fitness Trainer aged 55 or over in every one of its clubs by the end of 2022 and also introducing individual training programmes to meet the specific needs of the older age-group.

In addition to being a smart PR move, this commitment follows the publication of research by Public Health England and ukactive suggesting that older people feel more self-conscious when exercising in public and workout less often than other age groups.

Applicants for the new roles do not need to have fitness training experience, but they will need to have achieved the entry Level 2 in Fitness qualification. Advice and tips about how to study for this can be found at  www.davidlloyd.co.uk/active-ageing.
