Personal Trainer Resume with No Experience

Updated on July 14, 2015

Resumes for personal trainer position are written snapshots / word pictures of the unique combination of skills that you possess, which will be important to a prospective employer. A recent study has shown that employers generally screen one resume within 5 seconds, so your resume should be written in a way that quickly captures the reader’s interest.

A good resume sparks the desire to meet the candidate in person. The job of your resume is to land an interview and it should be able to help an employer quickly:

• Who you are
• What you do best
• What are your future goals
• How you can benefit the company

Repeatedly answering these questions in your head will give you a precise view of what you want your resume to look like. Typically, resumes are a couple of pages long – if you are writing one in which you cannot write much about experience (entry level resumes), you can limit it to one page. All bad resumes have a few thing in common, including wasted space, lack of strategic comprehension of the employer’s needs and too much focus on the job description. And if you want to write one that does not fall under this category, you must make sure that you do not make these mistakes.

What follows here is a resume sample of a personal trainer with no experience:
