Hi Alan, I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for taking the time to review my ads and give me feedback. I really appreciated that. It may not have been a big deal to you but I have put ads out on many different sites and you were the first person who actually sat and read my posts and gave me valuable feedback that I was able to put into practice immediately. That alone is invaluable! Thanks again.

I must compliment you on your website. It is so user friendly and that means a lot to me because I am not particularly adept at navigating such things! We have been getting good responses in the Aquatics and Fitness areas. I was also pleased to see a gymnastics category because we always have a need for instructors and coaches.

"I was very impressed by the number of potential candidates that responded to my listing. I found the site very easy to use. It was simple - it took very few clicks of the mouse to arrive at the area of the site I needed. I would recommend to other employers in the industry. I think the bottom line is that it's a great avenue for qualified candidates."
Ron Woolard

"It really helps me with the recruitment process because all of our locations can post job openings. Listings on the site always generate a lot of responses. is a lot more fine-tuned than a classified ad or other sites that employers might use. For example, I used once, which generated about 3,000 resumes. Unfortunately, about 2,950 of these weren’t relevant to the industry. is very specific to the industry and I’ve recommended the site to a lot of people hunting for jobs or employees".

"FitnessJobs is an awesome resource. We receive a significant amount of applicant flow by posting on the website. It is a pleasure to work with you guys!"
Kerah Champion, Recruiting Manager

I learned a valuable lesson early that you can never stop recruiting your next great trainer. The first week I opened I had to let one of my initial hires go. Fortunately, I had subscribed to a web-based recruiting service called and was able to replace him before the studio became overwhelmed. It has been the single best recruiting resource for me. Of the 3 trainers I have now at the studio, 2 found me through the service and have been great additions to the team. I have also been able to pull a few resumes for owners in other states that have turned into hires as well. My experience has been that attracts a more professionally oriented candidate compared with Craigslist. All of the candidates who have contacted me through this service were either certified with experience or were recent college grads with degrees in Kinesiology. Craigslist generates lots of resumes but most end up in the Rubbermaid.

I ran the ad and got the staff I needed. We've had low turnover since then. Additionally, your site has provided me with quality, committed, long-term employees so I can pay attention to running a successful business.

I'll let you know when we are ready again; hopefully, not too soon.
Brandon Reed, Owner
Fitness Together

"Alan, thanks again for all your help and first-rate customer service. As an owner of multiple personal training studios recruiting is a very important part of my business. Just like with marketing for new clients, I've found the best returns on my recruiting efforts come when I tightly target my message. Thats what makes so unique. I want to be where fitness professionals go to look for jobs not just anyone looking for employment. Over the years I’ve tried most everything and nothing comes close to the number of qualified applicants I get from your site. I also think the video idea is brilliant and will be posting one very soon. I’m looking for the right individual that fits with our business philosophy and training style. The more I can personalize my message the better chance I have in getting responses from qualified applicants. I'm all about successful systems in small business and your service will continue to be part of my recruiting system. I would highly recommend it to other fitness entrepreneurs".

Alan - Our organization has had such a positive experience with our first job posting (Exercise Physiologist) on your site. I am impressed with the ease of getting the job posted, the short response time from posting the job to receiving candidate inquiries (within minutes!!) as well as the hiring teams comments that the quality of these candidates coming through your website are superb!

Finally, the services that offers are an exceptional value as well!
Marnie Barnhart, Director of Human Resources
The Marsh, A Center for Fitness and Balance

Thanks for taking the time to check our results. The ad has turned out some good prospects. I will be hiring one of the candidates from your site and if things go as I believe they will, that one placement will have made the ad worth the money. There are two or three others that may work out as well. Again, I appreciate you taking the time to follow up. That alone would prompt me to use the site again for future recruiting.
Thomas Capobianco, Vice President of Personal Training

I wanted to say thank you for developing a "First Class Site" for job placement, as well as Recruitments.

For the last 20 years, I've maintained the desire to impart only the truth about business. I always have believed that a moment of insight is worth a lifetime's experience. I personally guarantee that is the #1 tool for anyone looking to find "Top notch" Professionals. The website is people sensitive and accurate. Understanding how an employer operates and what we are looking for, makes results easily obtained. Today because of, Results Plus Personal Training Center Hamden CT. has 16 nationally certified trainers. The best part of the overall experience is that our turnover rate has dropped, Most trainers now stay with us. Trainers who apply online at are more professional and have the knowledge and understanding of what they are looking for. This makes the recruitment procedures far more enjoyable and pinpoints our ability to find the "right" candidate.

Thank you, Alan, you have made the hiring process at Results Plus Personal Training in Hamden CT. easily obtainable!
Dave Parise, C.E.O. Results Plus Personal Training
