Re: Personal Trainer / Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Foster:

I am very interested in joining your team of dedicated personal trainers.

Since earning a BS in kinesiology from DEF University and IFPA Personal Fitness Trainer certification, I have worked for five years as a personal trainer and fitness instructor at XYZ Company. I conduct one-on-one training sessions, as well as cardio, weight training, wellness programs and boot camps for groups of up to 50 adults.

Passionate about helping others achieve their fitness and weight-loss goals, I provide high-energy programs combining the latest techniques in nutrition and exercise science.

As an in-demand personal trainer at XYZ, I have cultivated a loyal client base due to my reputation for producing exceptional results that include:

  • Helping clients achieve and maintain weight loss ranging from 10 to 125+ pounds
  • Enabling dozens of clients to reverse health problems such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, depression and heart disease
  • Planning and implementing safe and healthy fitness plans for new moms
  • Accelerating the safe rehabilitation of individuals recovering from injuries, illnesses and surgeries
  • Leading classes that improve the fitness, flexibility, strength and conditioning of men and women ranging in age from 16 to 70+

I am confident I can help your members attain and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Please call me at 555-555-5555 to set up a meeting. Thank you.

Enclosure: Résumé

Dear Mr. Blake,

I am responding to the recent ad for a fitness instructor job at Bally’s Gym. I have experience working as a physical trainer and have led multiple classes at the YMCA for people at all fitness levels. I have certification as a physical trainer and understand Pilates and Yoga as well as other popular methods for fitness and exercise.

When I am leading fitness classes, I use music to hold interest and keep an upbeat tone as I lead each group session. My classes are always full and many of the people sign up for repeat classes as returning customers, making the experience fulfilling for me. I have made friendships with people who attend my classes.

I provide excellent fitness motivation and try to model good choices both inside of the gym and in my daily life as well. I have an outgoing personality and have great social skills which are helpful when working with others. I write reports as needed and submit them to management as required.

Bally’s Gym would benefit by selecting me as the new fitness instructor. I have attached my resume along with several references from current and former clients. I would appreciate a call for an interview.
