Performance360 is one of San Diego’s premier strength and conditioning facilities, open since 2011 and three times being selected as a finalist for Best Gym in San Diego. We have two locations in the Pacific Beach area, plus 2018 expansion looming.

We are a group training gym with an emphasis on strength, conditioning and athleticism and we are looking for someone who loves fitness, love teaching, and loves working with people.

Available Positions Open:

  • Full Time Coach (~20 classes per week)
  • Part-Time Coach (~10 classes per week)

The Ideal Candidate

We like our coaches to be the right combination of independent thinker and team player. We like them to take the job of coaching very seriously, but not themselves. If you find yourself actively interested in seminars, certifications, and continuing education, as well as hanging out and kicking it with rad people, you will probably make a great fit for our coaching culture.

Ideally, you’re the type of person who reads blogs, books, and listens to fitness podcasts.

You should be very passionate about coaching and a good communicator to your clients and athletes. You should have a level of confidence and proficiency in all of our core movements which are the: squat, deadlift, clean, jerk, snatch, kettlebell swing, push-up, and pull-up.

You should know the difference between a hinge and a squat, basics of aerobic and anaerobic, and have a solid understanding of movement, functional anatomy, and exercise progression.

You should expect to use a lot of barbells, but also regularly incorporate different implements like landmines, ropes, and sandbags.

You should be cool with not revolving your fitness coaching around a time score. We do some training for time, here. Not a ton.

You should expect to be an active participant and role model in our culture and community. We expect all coaches to make Performance360 their full-time training for their personal workouts, and you will be expected to participate. At the backbone of our success, is that coaching here is an immersive cultural experience.

Above all, you should absolutely love coaching and teaching. If coaching is just a job for you, you will likely not be a good fit. You should be excited to join something with purpose and vision, a growing gym that has established itself as a leader in the outstanding San Diego fitness community.

If this is you, we’d love to hear from you.
