Coaching Opportunity in Cambodia

Our box has 80 CrossFit athletes and is growing larger every month! We also offer a popular Bootcamp class that provides a great way for many people to step into the world of fitness. With these two programs, CrossFit Amatak has grown to over 150 members ranging in ages from 14-60, coming from 30+ countries - one of the most diverse and strong communities you'll come across!

Job Responsibilities
  • Coach Bootcamp, CrossFit & On-Ramp classes – Lead or support a maximum of 20 classes per week.
  • Ensure Athlete Safety & Satisfaction – Athlete safety and correct movement standards should be highest priority. We ask that you lead from the front and be able to demonstrate great form and personal work ethic to inspire it in others.
  • Event Management – As part of your responsibilities we’d like you to lead event management and organization with support of the other staff and community members. This will mean helping get logistics and other items up and running for offsite workouts, parties and other events.
  • Willing to make a 1 to 2-year commitment – This is a big one and if this is your first time living abroad, and it’s a tough one, but we are looking for someone who is in it for the long haul.

  • Level 1 Crossfit Certification – Candidates with additional certifications will be given preference.
  • 1+ Years Crossfit coaching with affiliated box – We need someone who can hit the ground running but don’t let the years of experience scare you off, just demonstrate you have what it takes.
  • Outstanding referrals (from coaches and athletes) – These can be provided following initial interview.
  • Fluent English & excellent communication – The box will be operated with English as the main language. We need someone equally willing to say, ‘sure no problem’ as they are, ‘sorry, we can’t do that’ as appropriate. Members will be bringing sensitive issues to you – e.g. pregnancies, body image worries, health situations – you need to be able to handle these conversations tactfully and ensure members feel valued and respected (and helped!).
  • Culturally sensitive – Unless you’ve lived abroad before, this will be a life changing experience. Cambodians are super friendly but we’ll have athletes from all over the world, frequently with English as a second language and we need someone who is excited to work with different cultures.
  • Dedication to making a difference – Do you feel passionate about making a life-changing difference in people’s health and fitness? This may be right for you.

Preferred but not required
  • Other training/safety certifications – USAW-L1SP, NASM, NSCA-CPT, CSCS, or ACSM, Kettlebell, nutrition, swimming, CPR/AED, etc.
  • 4 Year University Degree or Military Career (with honorable discharge) – Physical Education or similar degree preferred but not required.
  • Khmer language ability – This is a long shot but if you speak some Khmer you'll be given special preference.
  • Korean language ability – We may be expanding to has a very large Korean Speaking (very little English) community. The coach does not need to be native but good conversational Korean would be helpful.
