TREBEL Apprenticeship Program

APPRENTICE COACH (What's the deal with that?)


APPRENTICE; a person who is learning a trade from a skilled employer, having agreed to work for a fixed period at low wages.

An apprenticeship is a system of training a new generation of practitioners of a trade or profession with on-the-job training and often some accompanying study (classroom work and reading).

Apprenticeship also enables practitioners to gain a license to practice in a regulated profession.

Most of their training is done while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession, in exchange for their continued labor for an agreed period after they have achieved measurable competencies.

Most apprenticeships typically last 3 to 6 years.

People who successfully complete an apprenticeship reach the journeyman level of competence.

Although the formal boundaries and terminology of the apprentice/journeyman/master system often do not extend outside of guilds and trade unions, the concept of on-the-job training leading to competence over a period of years is found in any field of skilled labor.

We recruit talented, motivated and energetic individuals interested in becoming full time professional coaches who will help us attain our mission of getting people fit and keeping them fit for life.



Junior Apprentice I
(0-3 months)

This is the time to be introduced into the craft of coaching, more specifically working with individuals one on one.
Coaches must develop a base understanding of the movement systems and how to execute training of the movements with an individual.
The coach will also start to discern a position as a leader within their community as a fitness professional.

Relationship building and personal growth are highlighted.

Junior Apprentice II
(3-6 months)

At this level, we will be developing group class coaching skills as well as starting to bring the right people in for consultations and assessments.
Continuing to work through who your "ideal client" is – who do you want to work with for the rest of your professional life?
Specific metrics such as active clients on hybrid memberships that you brought through the consultation, fundamentals, and graduation system must be attained in order to advance to Senior Apprentice I.
You will begin to craft your skill of retention during the first 6 months of the client’s life cycle.
There’s a focus on progressions and individualization in fundamentals, transition into group classes, and recommending the right hybrid memberships.
