Looking for A Pilates and Fitness Teacher


I am looking for a Pilates and Fitness teacher to fill a position at an A-List private island in Turks and Caicos.

I am very excited to announce that I am searching for a fully certified Pilates and Fitness teacher to replace the current teacher at the COMO Shambhala Spa at Parrot Cay Resort in Turks and Caicos.

This was my job 2007-2011, where I won the SpaFinder Magazine Reader's Choice Award for Best Pilates, so I have some insight into what it takes to succeed on the island.

This position will start in August or September of 2014.

The minimum requirements for a successful candidate are:

  • Comprehensive Pilates Certification (mat and all pilates apparatus)
  • Recognized Personal Trainer Certification
  • At least 5 years of teaching experience, including rehab-style work (not including apprentice teaching)
  • Some sales and management background
  • Ability to work well with others and be ok alone
  • Some experience with higher end clientele
  • Program creation for guest goals - weight loss, toning, pain reduction

What would be great to bring to the table:

  • Kettlebell training (already on island and guests love to learn these in privates)
  • TRX® Suspension Training (again, already there and guests love to take privates)
  • Alternative Pilates Programming - balls, bands, magic circles, etc.

What you will receive:

  • Salary, commission, tips, shared gratuity, and no US taxes (Foreign earned income exemption) - not sure about other countries tax laws
  • Shared Staff Housing, food, benefits (health insurance, paid vacation, accrued public holidays), and swimming, snorkeling, and gorgeous beach
  • A connection to A-list celebrities, business leaders, and politicians that you will never have outside
  • The space to solidify your skills as a teacher in a supportive environment

A few more specifics:

  • Initial contract will be 2 years
  • Work week is 6 days, with 1-2 group classes each day plus privates
  • You will be working holidays, since that is when people go on vacation
  • You will be signing a confidentiality agreement.

If this sounds like something you have been waiting for, send me your CV and let's start the ball rolling! This job can position you for the rest of your career.
