Fitness Instructor Resume

A fitness instructor resume revolves around several aspects of the candidate's professional background, bringing into spotlight his professional qualities, strengths, and expertise. While it acts as an efficient medium promoting your career related interests, it also acts as an effective marketing tool that represents your profile with adequate enhancement. Comprising of your contact details, an executive summary, your key skills, educational and employment history, accomplishments, and references, your resume is like a profile reader. Although it works for you, it has to be employer-centered, meaning that all the information that it projects should perfectly comply with the specifications of the job that you are seeking. Generally, candidates contact their employers and discuss their needs, and if time permits introduce the recruiters to their profiles. This is a great practice as it gives you a vivid picture as to what you need to include in your resume, and how to present it with enhancement.

Include an executive summary

Start your resume with an effective career objective, immediately following the contact details, as shown below in the fitness trainer resume sample. Observe the sentence formations, and try to club 2-3 important pieces of information together into one brief, yet highly informative sentence. As you proceed, include a profile summary, showing 6-8 significant features that reflect your professional background. The idea is to summarize your experience into a small section, with better visibility and readability. This also facilitates adequate space planning, restricting your resume to one page only, which is ideal in your scenario. Pay careful attention to the arrangement of information, and while you're at it, take care not to include any mundane elements that has low or no relevance to the position that you are seeking.

Zoom in on your skills:

Following the summary, include a section dedicated to display your strengths, knowledge, and skills, describing in about 5-6 bulleted points. Here, mention your ability in personal training, highlighting your knowledge in the anatomy of the human body. Refer to the sample resume below, and try to grasp the idea of customization. Simply highlighting your skills using bullets isn't enough, you need put them forth in the best possible manner. And for that, you need to frame smart sentences, avoiding any traces of "I","my", or "me".

Educational details and employment history need not be elaborated. Keep them just as shown below in the example. You may also include your extra curricular activities or your involvement in sporting activities. If you have won any rewards so far, you are most welcome to include the information as your accomplishments, provided that the details hold utmost relevance to the job profile as a personal fitness instructor.
