Sports Club jobs
Many people are realising that exercise is vital to good health and so it is easier to find sports club jobs than ever before. This field is booming and you do not always need a matrix to get sports club jobs. Many of the positions can be learned at home or on the job. However, some of the more advanced positions do require matric. If you are going to work on nutrition or want to move into management, your matric my be necessary for those sports club jobs. Before applying, make sure you understand what each position is and whether or not you need an advanced education.

Some sports clubs train receptionists to sign up new clients and handle cash transactions. The position is usually relaxed with interpersonal communication skills being the most important skill.
A fitness trainer works with groups in sports clubs to help them reach their fitness goals. These instructors work with groups or individuals inside the club but are not assigned to one particular individual. Fitness trainers may lead aerobic classes, spinning classes, or train members on how to use equipment in the club. Fitness trainers average about R5 000 per month or more based on experience.
Personal Fitness Trainers
Personal fitness trainers make more than fitness trainers, averaging just over R8 000 monthly. These trainers are assigned to one person at a time and work with them to reach their fitness goals. This does not mean they only work with one person each day, they simply work one-on-one rather than in a group. This type of attention helps to motivate the client better than a group scenario. Sports clubs typically have one or two personal trainers on staff that can be assigned on a first-come first-serve basis.
Sports club jobs offer more than just an income, the employee typically stays in shape due to helping others get in shape. These jobs have an average salary with the bonus of use of the facilities in the club. Some of these positions require a matric and possibly some secondary education in nutrition and physical development; however, there are some sports club jobs that do not require a matrix, like the receptionist.
