Why should you work with a trainer at Styrka?

There's a dirty secret in the fitness industry: most personal trainers are barely more qualified than the clients they train. That's because large corporate fitness centers are centered on machine training and calisthenics rather than human movement and smart programming.  At Styrka, our trainers are experts in human movement—in simple, hard, effective training with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, steel maces, and other tools of functional, effective training.

    Want to join the team?

    If you're an aspiring fitness professional who just wants to show up for an hourly check, we are not for you. Styrka trainers are not employees, but entrepreneurs with complete autonomy to set their own schedules and design their own programming. We do not take conventional dues or fees from trainers, instead simply requiring that their clients are either members or pay the $5 day fee — both of which the trainer may opt to pay on behalf of their clients. We work to promote our trainers through our website and social media channels, but our trainers are solely responsible for acquiring and retaining their own clientele, and we do not offer guaranteed hours. Our goal is simply to provide a clean, well-equipped, professional environment in which trainers can maximize their income.  For more information or to schedule an interview, email your resume to mike@styrkagym.com.
