"If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude And A Few Basic Skills, I Have A $12/hr, Fun And Fulfilling Job Just For You!"
Dear Prospective Employee,
First of all, thanks for taking the time to visit this site. It’s my hope that you have precisely what I need in an employee so I can take this page down immediately and put you to work in the fun and rewarding job I have available.

You should have arrived here because you saw my employment ad in the Craigslist.com, your local news paper or some other media source that we use. It should have read something like this:

“Wanted: Admin Assistant Professional With Passion For Success & The Desire
To Be A Part Of A Winning Team”

So, let me tell you about me, my company and the job.

My name is Kennett Washington Fitness Expert & one of Charlotte’s best trainers for body transformation. As a Pro Natural Bodybuilder I understand how the body works and how it has the ability to completely transform when feeding and training it properly. I run a private fitness Personal Training and Nutrition Company called Healing Strength Personal Training in Charlotte, NC. As a small and yet still expanding company we can service quite a bit of the Charlotte residents & surrounding areas.

Healing Strength Personal Training was founded on February 21, 1999. Since then we have been helping clients live life to the fullest with proper exercise and nutrition. With our motto “medicine is now in fitness” we have truly redefined client’s lives. What do I mean by redefining the quality of someone’s life? Quality of life is when someone gets a clean bill of health from their doctor, not just physically, but also emotionally, spiritually, and financially. When elite athletes are able to take their game to the next level, teachers who now feel more focused and energized at work, able to give back even more to our young youth, CEO’s, CFO’s, business owners tell me that their performance at work has improved. Do you know how many of our clients were able to decrease or in some cases get off of their cholesterol, hypertension, antidepressant and numerous other harmful medications? This supports my motto “medicine is now in fitness.” Many of today’s illnesses are preventable with proper exercise and nutrition. With this accomplishment in mind we at Healing Strength are proud to be a big part in saving our clients lives.

Our clients come from all walks of life. Feel Free to browse some of our client’s inspirational testimonials and inspirational transformations pictures after filling out your employment form. “Many people workout but very few know how to train. The nervous, muscular, and skeletal systems are three powerful systems. If trained properly they can maximize your results and the effectiveness of your overall program.”

Healing Strength Personal Training is a personal training company structured to teach our clients how to train their system to respond to a proper individualized program. Training can be done at our location or within the privacy of your own home. All of which allows optimal results and overall benefits to your health. We follow the National Academy of Sports and Medicine (NASM) OPT Model. This model is divided into three different building blocks of the training-stabilization, strength, and power. Within each level contains very specific phases of training.

Based on each unique clients assessment training programs are then designed using the (NASM) OPT Model. We are proud to offer the specialized areas of training in Integrated Core Stabilization, Integrated Neuromuscular Stabilization and Integrated Reactive Neuromuscular. Science and studies has shown this progressive system to be effective in today’s society. With this power and knowledge our certified trainers are dedicated to get their prospective clients the maximum results through proper training, nutrition, and supplementation. We at Healing Strength Personal Training believe in client education and long term client health and success, not unhealthy quick fix fad diets and programs that could be hazardous to our client’s health.

Tasks I Need You To Perform
  • Answering and returning phone calls from customers and prospects: I don’t get a ton of phone calls, but the ones that come in are important. When you’re not here to answer the phone, many of the calls will go to voicemail. You’ll be responsible for returning those calls the next day.

  • Responding to customer service phone calls and emails: I get quite a few phone calls and emails every day. You will need to respond to each of these with basic information I’ll provide to you. So you need to be comfortable with the phone, using email and be a good typist.

  • Web site management: Ideally, you’ll have some technology skills and can do some basic updates to my web sites & back office to our blog site (if not, I’ll teach you how).

P.S. This is not a corporate type of structured job. I am an entrepreneurial small business owner. I move quickly to capitalize on opportunities. This is not the type of job where just showing up is enough. Performance is everything to me. If you perform, you will be rewarded. I want nothing more than to find a person who takes real interest in doing good work and contributing to the growth of the business. If that's you, I promise that $12/hour is only the starting point. I recognize and reward performance!

With all that said, as I mentioned in the headline on this page, enthusiasm and a positive attitude go a long way in my book. I’m a very positive, upbeat guy and appreciate those qualities in others. As long as you have the basic skills I mentioned, and a great attitude, you’re definitely a candidate! So send me your resume today!
