House Coaching

There are a lot of benefits WHEN YOU Join Team Nerd Fitness:

1) Work with talented people. We aren’t perfect, but people on Team Nerd Fitness have super powers that are well honed in different areas. If you like working with passionate, talented people, that’s us.

2) Work remotely. We have team members that live in 8 different states. We don’t have set “working hours” or vacation days – instead, we expect everyone to get their work done on time. We hit deadlines and work really hard to be accountable to each other, but we don’t care where you work from. Have family in another state or another country? No problem – go work from there!

3) We care about our team, our customers, and our community. We’re changing the world for the better. We’re helping hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world. If that’s appealing to you – and you care – you’ll fit right in.

4) Most positions start as a 1099 contractor on a per project basis. This setup is the most simple and clean to start. We’re a team and business that’s growing FAST and we’re up for constantly evaluating where talented people can fill roles and provide value to our community. If you’re a go-getter, you’ll succeed here fast.

We are hiring for the positions!

Nerd Fitness is creating a Jedi Council! 

I’ve published 800+ articles and guides on Nerd Fitness over the past 11 years. I want to make sure all content on NF is not only the most informative and entertaining, but also well-researched, grounded in medical studies and science, and cross checked by detail-oriented credentialed professionals. 

Oh, and also still has the best LEGO photos and gifs and memes. Duh.

I am looking to work with people from the NF Community who LOVE what we’re doing, LIVE for research, AND also have specific credentials in a few key areas! 

These credentials are an ABSOLUTE MUST.

We are looking for people with ONE or more of THESE active credentials and certifications:

  • Masters / PHD in Nutrition Science
  • Masters / PHD in Exercise Science/Physiology
  • Registered Dietitian (RD)
  • Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)
  • MD with focus on Endocrinology and Metabolism
  • PhD in Biomedical Science
  • PhD in Epidemiology and/or Biostatistics

Bonus points if you happen to have additional board certifications in sports dietetics, obesity and weight management, or similar.

Steve! I have these specific credentials!”

Great! Keep reading!

NEXT: We are looking for brave souls who LIVE for scientific research.

Like, you can’t wait to look at studies, parse out the relevant information in those studies, and help draw meaningful, actionable conclusions from that data!

Maybe you are subscribed to medical journals, you love MASS, and you can’t go a day without reading the latest study on PubMed. 

If this is you, we could use you on the NF Jedi Council!

EXPECTATIONS: This will be independent contractor work that can be done anywhere at any time. Jedi Council members will be paid on a per-article basis.

We anticipate a Jedi Council member would review 1-2 articles per week, with each article review taking a handful of hours to review and cross-check.

We know some articles will take more time, and others far less. We will find a balance and an agreement that works for each member! 

You’ll also have a byline and photo on NerdFitness.com explaining that you reviewed the content, and we’ll make sure to share your credentials and link to your page or practice.

We are searching for an enthusiastic, self-motivated internal phone salesperson to join our fast growing team at Nerd Fitness.

This will be a part-time role - and will be focused primarily on evening/nights and weekend (full-day) time slots.

Essentially, we are looking for someone to spend most their work day having quick, fun conversations with nerds (both current customers and new visitors to Nerd Fitness) who sign up to get more information and apply to join our 1-on-1 coaching program.

You’ll need to love talking with new people, be excellent at getting to know others and building rapport quickly, and have a passion for helping determine if our custom 1-on-1 solution is the best fit for them. You’ll then share an accurate and detailed description of exactly how we can help them with our program - as well as options to join the program when applicable.

You will be compensated based on the number of nerds that join during or after your conversations and email follow ups with them. And you’ll play an essential and rewarding part of helping these self-interested nerds change their lives through fitness.

This job is fully remote, can be done from anywhere, but requires a reliable internet connection, a comfortable working arrangement, and a quiet environment (since you’ll be on phone conversations most of the time).

This opportunity is best suited for someone with a lot of scheduling flexibility. You'll have large blocks of time available in the evening and weekend (5-6 hours in evening and 8-10 hours on weekends). However, you won't always have the calls fill up on your schedule.

Sometimes these times won't fill up completely, other times we have a rush and the entire time you have available will fill with excited nerds wanting to talk more about how Coaching may be a good fit for their goals. This is a great opportunity for someone who can put up the time, and be flexible to take calls based on the frequency people book (again, sometimes this is very few - sometimes it's a large percentage of the time you put up).

Nerd Fitness is a fast growing company of 40+ full-time team members and coaches that has tremendous potential for individual growth and responsibility. This role is no exception. While internal phone sales is the core objective, there will be ample opportunity for the right person to grow inside the sales department in the coming years.

Our online community has 2 million monthly visitors to its free content, has over 40,000 paid customers in its digital products and trainings, and offers 1-on-1 online coaching to hundreds of monthly clients. We focus on helping self-proclaimed nerds, misfits, and mutants get healthy in a sustainable, permanent way.

Currently, existing customers and new visitors to Nerd Fitness can read a little bit about how our 1-on-1, private coaching works before signing up for a phone call (usually between 20-25 minutes total) to talk to a Nerd Fitness team member.

This is where you will come in.

You will call these "inbound" leads at the time they have selected. You’ll quickly get to know them and their current fitness goals, motivations, dreams, restrictions, and current hurdles. You’ll ensure first that we CAN help them and that we’re a great fit for one another. Reread that sentence again. LISTENING will be key. We want to actually get to know our clients and figure out HOW our program can help them (and IF it can) first.

Second, you’ll set expectations about what they can expect inside the coaching program. Third, you’ll ensure that you focus on how our program will benefit their experience, help them reach their goals, and work into their life.

You will be on the frontlines with our most important asset - our community members. We need someone who is enthusiastic, passionate, great at building rapport, and cares deeply about helping people change their lives for the better. Someone who listens as much as they talk (but also loves to talk as you will be listening AND talking all day in this role).

You’ll represent and be the voice of our entire team and play a key role in the next steps of each and every person you speak with.

Still interested? Sound like you? Read on for more specifics.

You will be expected to:

  • Work remotely to make phone calls each month and manage the follow up process to add clients to our Coaching program. At this time, all calls are warm leads provided by Nerd Fitness. A potential customer must set up the call themselves if they are interested in learning more.
  • Of the calls picked up, you’ll be expected to track and maintain a minimum average rate of clients added (based on average rate of other team members). Many customers are ready to join on the phone, some will require email follow up. All these additional clients will count towards your progress here. This conversion rate should show improvement month over month.
  • Maintain flexible availability on our schedule. Our scheduling platform means that many times our salespeople will have larger blocks of time available and that only some of that time fills up. That's great - and allows a flexible "work from anywhere" environment. Sometimes you'll put up a large amount of time and only have a few calls. Other times you'll put up an 8 hour block and every single slot will be filled with 16 individual calls. The right person for this job thrives with the flexibility of adjusting and adding time - and is eager for anytime when they can get people to book time to chat about their fitness goals and about our Coaching program.

To hit our company goals, your contributions will include (but are not limited to):

  • Managing our call scheduling software (currently YouCanBookMe) and its integrations (with Zapier, Infusionsoft, HelpScout etc). We’ll teach you to use this simple software and manage the sales pipeline.
  • Making yourself available for a a minimum of 20 hours a week for calls and administrative tasks associated with following up with leads. The bulk of these hours will be weekend hours with some weekday evenings included.
  • Communicating clearly with potential clients via phone and email about the program itself, ways it can exceed their needs, and next steps to get started. Once a client makes a payment, his or her Coach takes over the responsibility for their success.
  • Developing and improving scripts and email templates to lay the foundation for a growing sales team. How can we improve how we share, communicate with, and show value to our nerds? You’ll be expected to help shape this based on your experience on the phone.
  • Tracking your calls, your pick ups, and other analytics across various sources or paths to determine which result in highest potential for joining coaching. You’ll track this in detail and we’ll work together to help get more of the best sources coming in.
  • Maintaining high level of organization and structure that allows you to follow up with leads in a timely, efficient manner.
  • Keeping concise notes about each customer interaction. Your conversations will lay the foundation of a Coach’s knowledge about a client and can help guarantee a positive impression when a Coach speaks to a client for the first time.

Skills that would enable you to thrive:

  • You have great communication skills, both spoken and written. You can connect with people easily over the phone. You’re easy to talk to, make friends easily, and are someone that people can trust to have their best interest in mind. Speaking to other people energizes you.
  • People in your life regularly brag about how good of a listener you are. You enjoy listening to people share their personal experiences and naturally know what simple questions to ask to help get more information and more detail from them.
  • You have 3-5 years experience on a sales team and excelled in various sales environments.
  • You not only are good on the phone, you want to spend your working hours calling and talking to passionate people. You enjoy the prospect of getting to know a new person quickly and are thrilled to start new conversations regularly.
  • You have a high level of internal motivation to meet and exceed goals. You won’t have someone watching over you all day, so you should be able to self-start and keep a narrow focus on your metrics. You don’t need external motivation to perform.
  • You have an intense desire to learn the ins and outs of the product and our Coaches’ strengths, and understand how the first few days of a client’s interaction with the Sales Team and the Coach impact a client’s lifespan in the program. You will improve the process as you go.
  • You have previous experience with Slack, Trello, Google Docs, YouCanBookMe, HelpScout, and/or Infusionsoft. You are quick to pick up new technology and are able to troubleshoot challenges on your own.
  • You have a reliable computer, headset, and internet connection and can make calls through programs like Google Hangouts and Skype.
  • You have a quiet work environment that you can make calls from, without distraction.
  • You are flexible in your work life. If people don't answer, that's okay. If people cancel or reschedule, that's okay. If your time doesn't fill up, that's okay. And most importantly, if ALL your time fills up with back to back conversations - that's definitely okay, too.

Preferred knowledge, skills, and abilities:

  • Acquainted with health, fitness, self improvement, and habit building concepts.
  • Familiar with Nerd Fitness philosophy, content, and communication style.
  • Consistent weekly availability and flexibility in schedule with availability during several weekday evenings as well as at least one weekend.
  • Extreme attention to detail and a master at keeping information organized.
  • Quick learner when it comes to implementing new technology or online software.

Compensation structure:

You’ll be compensated for each person who joins our Coaching program after your sales call or follow up. You will receive additional bonus compensation if a customer elects for one of our 6 or 12 month prepaid options when signing up.

The full compensation details of each sale will be provided if you are selected for a follow-up or an interview.

The amount a salesperson can earn is only capped by available leads and by the amount of availability they schedule each week (it's not capped by us). We expect the right person to quickly excel and push the limits of the position quickly.

Application eligibility:

Please note that while this is a remote position, we are a U.S. based company and you must be authorized to work in the United States to apply.

If this sounds like an opportunity you’d like to explore, email your resume to careers@nerdfitness.com. We will be looking over resumes on a first come, first serve basis. 

Your email must include:

  • "Coaching Salesperson" in the subject line.
  • Your location and time zone.
  • Something you are passionately nerdy about.
  • Why you are perfect for this role.
  • Any conflicts you have with putting up weekend and evening time blocks to potentially take calls.

Your resume should be a one page overview of your most relevant work experience and achievements that should indicate your success in this role at Nerd Fitness.

Due to the typical volume of applicants for our available roles at Nerd Fitness, please know that we cannot respond to everyone who sends in an application. If you make it to the second round of the application process, you will know with 5 days of receiving your application.
