Do I have to complete the internship process to become a CG Trainer?
Camp Gladiator maintains the highest industry brand standards to ensure our campers receive the best workout from a certified professional trainer no matter what location(s) they attend. We require all recruits to complete the internship process regardless of education and experience.
Do internships with Camp Gladiator count towards college credits?
The internship with Camp Gladiator is different from those sought to earn credit for a college course. It is a training program intended for those starting a career with Camp Gladiator. College credits can be earned in an approved collegiate internship process approved by your university and a Region Director of Camp Gladiator.
Do I have to have my CPT before I can start the process?
We require all trainers to already have a current CPT certificate or be scheduled to test for their CPT prior to the signing of a contract.
What types of certifications do I need to become a CG Trainer?
We require all trainers to have current CPT and CPR certifications. CPTs must come from a nationally accredited organization and include, but are not limited to, NSCA, NASM, Cooper, ACE, ACSM, etc. Please contact the Region Director for a complete list of accepted accreditations.
Is Camp Gladiator a full-time or part-time opportunity?
Camp Gladiator has opportunities to become a Primary Trainer or an Hourly Trainer. The Primary Trainer positions are considered full-time and have the most earning potential. Hourly Trainer positions are part-time and used on an as needed basis at the direction of Primary Trainers.
How do I apply to become a CG Trainer?
We ask that your resume be submitted via our application page.
When is the next Information Session or Audition?
All event information can be found on the Events tab, this is updated each season.
The CG Trainer Onboarding process is a series of steps to complete an interview-type process to see if the interested trainer is qualified to become a CG Trainer. By completing these steps there is still no guarantee of the opportunity to become a CG Trainer.
Complete and submit your application.
Attend CG workouts in your area to experience the CG program and to prepare for the CG audition.
Attend a CG Audition.
If you are invited past the CG Audition, you will be invited to start the CG Trainer Internship process.
If you are invited past the Internship process, you will be asked to attend CG Academy, a corporate workshop in Austin, Texas.
Camp Gladiator Trainers are called Operators. Similar to the Chick-Fil-A business model, our trainers operate locations and receive the lionshare of the profit they generate. The short answer is through the power of teamwork we are able to completely dominate our competition. CG is built by trainers, for trainers, and has the most rewarding pay structure in the industry.
In addition to being the fastest growing fitness movement in the United States, Camp Gladiator has been voted “Best Of” by virtually every publication and ranking agency in existence, including Competitor, D Magazine, Austin Fit, Rare Magazine, and WFAA. There are many reasons for our success – here’s a few:
When we move into a city, our campers can attend any and all locations as many times as they like. In Dallas-Fort Worth, for example, our campers can choose from over 100 separate locations that operate nearly 600 sessions per four week camp. Customers would have to drive past three or four CG locations to get to a more expensive competitor with most likely an inferior trainer.
Our initial price point is lower than virtually every other camp. Our discounts are better than any other camp, and our campers receive an immediate credit for referring a friend. We believe group fitness should be available to everyone, and we price our camps accordingly.
No, we do not wear combat boots and yell at you. No, you will not fear for your life. What we promise is a fun, challenging, and competitive environment where men and women of all ages and fitness levels can push themselves. CG is more than a boot camp, it’s a way of life.
Many other boot camps are owned by a phenomenal trainer, but there is little reason for another phenomenal trainer to work for them. The great ones simply go out and start their own boot camp. Camp Gladiator changed all that. We created a way for All-Star trainers to work under the same brand name, an unstoppable force offering the ultimate value to our customers. Our trainers are certified and have great experience. Many are former collegiate, professional, and Olympic athletes and are at the top of their game.
