Job Description:

At Pongo Power, our program design is based upon the fundamental principles of movement and sports science. As a Pongo Power Personal Trainer, you will implement science-based exercise program design for a variety of clients.

Our team works in collaboration with one another: this means consulting verbally, and in writing, about the clients’ progress, utilizing exercise and sports-specific terminology.

You’ll be working in a variety of environments: in-person, outdoors, and on Zoom!

  • Contribute to Pongo Power's social media platforms.

Pay Description:

  • $25 for Personal Training Clients during your introduction period
  • Once you’ve completed the introduction period, you will be earning a commission-based pay wage. Raises are based on the ability to conduct the job responsibilities, in full. Commissions for conducting Personal Training Sessions are 30%, 35%, or 40% of the client’s payment for the hour.
