Meet Some of the Team


Personal trainer & gym instructor

"I have gained my Level 3 Personal training qualification through The Exercise Lounge Education Centre and worked here ever since. I gained great experience while doing the course and am now enjoying taking classes, group pt sessions and 1-2-1 personal training. This job is extremely rewarding and The Exercise Lounge has been extremely supportive in helping me gain my diploma while giving me flexible hours to balance my home life."


Gym Manager

"I have worked at The Exercise Lounge for 2 years and progressed from instructor to manager. It is a great place to progress and learn your skills. We set up the personal training academy and I am now a course tutor helping the next crop of personal trainers gain their level 3 qualifications."


Freelance personal trainer

"I am a freelance trainer working out of the Banbury gym for years now and found it extremely beneficial in supporting my own business. I have gained many clients from the gym and find the atmosphere perfect to work in for me and my clients. There are lots of different positions available and The Exericse Lounge do everything to help you achieve your career goals while being part of a supportive team."

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your roles based?

We have gyms in Banbury, Didcot and Wallingford. All staff work from their designated gym however can change and there are some remote opportunities where stated.

Do you offer internships, work experience or placements?


Do you keep past candidates’ applications for future openings?

It’s best to keep your eye on our jobs board and submit a new application for any roles which you’re interested in. Our system logs all the applications we get, so we can keep candidates in mind for other roles if they stand out.

Do you have a graduate scheme?

We don’t run a graduate scheme at the moment but some of our roles can be a great fit for those just out of uni. Have a read through the job descriptions above to find out more.

I saw a role recently but can’t find it anymore, can I still apply?

If a role isn’t on our website it means we’re not accepting applications for the position anymore. We process applications on a rolling basis and encourage everyone to apply as soon as they can.

I’m a recruiter, can we work together?

We’re not looking for any recruitment support right now. We’ve got a team to hire most of the roles we need. But we’ll let you know if that changes!
