Dear Mr./Ms./Mrs. [Hiring Manager’s Name],
My name is [Your Name] and I’m applying for the Fit to Fittest Operations Manager position advertised on [company website/LinkedIn/job board website].
I’ve been involved in the health and fitness industry for 10+ years. I started as a front desk attendant in university before learning the technicalities of running a fitness center, working my way up to my current position as an operations manager at Gold’s Gym.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and I understand the finances of a fitness club from my years spent working at all levels of sales teams. Currently, I supervise our sales team of 5+ and have collaborated with my director to provide ongoing staff training and 20+ professional development workshops. My approach to club operations starts with a focus on our 275+ clients, and service quality is my top priority. I received the “Top Manager of the Year” award for my efforts in improving our customer service and sales training programs.
Regarding strategy, I’m a strong believer in developing leadership skills and empowering people to take ownership of their processes. I’m detail-oriented and know how to conduct careful research before initiating changes. For instance, I exceeded our sales goals by 82% in 2020 after creating a new strategy that involved updating our company’s POS and fitness scheduling systems. I believe effective communication and forward thinking is key to leadership, and I strive to create a positive and motivating environment that is up-to-date with industry trends and advances company growth.
Last, I’m committed to the highest standards of professionalism in the industry, and I aim to ensure that those standards are implemented in every aspect of club operations. Please feel free to contact me at [Phone Number] or [Email Address]. I look forward to further discussing how I can add value to Fit and Fittest. Thank you for taking the time to read my cover letter.
