I’m about to take my GFI exam with ACSM and I want to be a group fitness instructor in a Dallas TX fitness center. My experience in group fitness is almost 6 months and I want to find a fitness job before I relocate to Dallas from CO. What is the average salary for a GFI? Any suggestions are welcome, thanks in advance.
All I can add to the above is for you to use a recruiter if you can. If you are not familiar with the area or the market or the fitness facilities in Dallas it might be wiser to go that route (recruiter). Sometimes it’s a lot harder to get hired by a local gym or facility if you are not in the area because they might require a face to face interview (among other things). Recruiters usually work with local employers and they have the connections that you’ll need to help you get hired especially if you are not in the area. You can try one of the larger companies in the area such as LA Fitness, Equinox, Life Time Fitness, 24 hour Fitness, etc. because many of them use their own recruiters and it really doesn’t matter where you live at the moment. I hope this helps and good luck with your search.
