Kickoff Coach Role Description

ABOUT KICKOFF

OUR COACH APPLICATION PROCESS
We only want to introduce our clients to the very best trainers. We believe that the best way to evaluate your fit with remote training is to actually observe how you do with real paying clients.

To get started, we help you recruit your own initial clients, pay you a higher bonus rate for them from day 1, and then evaluate how you do. Once we see that you’re a fit as a coach, we’ll add you to our marketplace to find clients for you while continuing to help you recruit others as well.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Submit an application
  2. If your application is approved, audition by training your first clients on the platform - this is your "interview" with us - our system will audit your work, and if you are seen to provide a strong experience to clients, we'll make you Kickoff Certified and add you to our marketplace
  3. Ramp up with clients from the marketplace and from your own recruitment efforts - train as many as you want, up to 75 at one time. (We retain the right to pause marketplace access if client experience dips, though we’ll always help you get back on track)
