Do you...

...have a strong desire to serve others through health and fitness coaching?

We pride ourselves in delivering exceptional health and fitness coaching so that people can live their healthiest lives outside of our gym. It starts with building a personal relationship and finding the best ways to help.

...share our health and fitness coaching philosophy?

We believe in coaching sustainable habits for each individual; whether it’s nutrition, stress management, sleep or exercise, we want to help people find ways to be happy, healthy, and fulfilled for the long term.

...want the opportunity to grow as an intrapreneur?

This coaching position would start as part time with the potential to move to full-time. You will have the opportunity to have your own clients, provide private training and run programs that align with our ideals and serve the needs of our community. In doing so, your income is limited simply by your work ethic.

...represent our values and display healthy habits regularly?

Our clients look to us as examples, so we want to represent the behaviors/actions in which we value:

  • Accountability

  • Integrity

  • Compassion

  • Diversity

Who We Are

We're here to help central CT become healthier through the services we provide, and the information we publish and promote.

Viking Athletics is dedicated to helping all motivated individuals achieve their full potential through challenging, quality athletic movement, and nutritional advice best suited to their lifestyle. We believe:

-The precision and difficulty of true athletic exercise can be a means of achieving not only physical strength and well-being, but also of finding personal growth, self-discovery, and innate power.

-Everyone is capable of being physically, mentally, and spiritually stronger than they were yesterday, and true failure happens only when you stop trying.

-The true realization of one's value lies not in validation from others, but in overcoming personal limitations.

-STRENGTH is not just about achieving greater physical feats, but also about staring down demons of self-doubt, self-limitation, and fear in the process.

We support our clients in living happy, healthy, and balanced lives, and we’re looking for the right Fitness Coach who shares our values to join our mission and help even more people!
