Employment in Fitness

I currently live in London, work as a Step, Pump, Aerobic Instructor, Personal Training and Exercise Referral Instructor, the company my other half works for is based in Schafhaussen where we will be relocating in time. I've checked out a few of the fitness facilities in and surrounding Schafhaussen and will explore employment opportunities but my German is almost non existent, lessons will be taken in hope to integrate, can anyone recommend a gym to start with?

Thx J

Re: Employment in Fitness

To start with:

I notice that there are many openings listed on:
http://www.activfitness.ch/Home.page (in german but google translate might help)

They might be up for an english speaking instructor especially for central Zurich - Tiefenbrunnen, Central & Stauffacher.

Holmes Place is anglo-centric but doesn't seem to have any listed openings in Zurich. Worth keeping an eye on it's vacancies page: http://www.holmesplace.ch/en-ch/careers/index.php

or get in touch with them directly to ask

Other than that, the google office in Zurich which has their own fitness center might also up for an english speaking instructor.

Good luck...

Thanks, at the moment I need all the assistance and guidance to get me into civilisation and not stuck in a new country with little outlet.

Re: Employment in Fitness

get in touch with them, I teach some classes as a hobby and doing them in English has not been a problem. Gyms always need some substitute instructors, even if they don't have vacancies at the moment and this is the best way to get your foot in the door.

Oh and if you're teaching the LesMills Bodypump then the next quarterly training is 10-11 September in Zurich.
