Personal Trainer position in Austin Texas


12 comments written by Joshua Trentine

In our last blog post “Why Can’t I Do This On My Own…”, I told you I would explain why I can’t change lives on my own. 

The answer is fairly obvious.

  • I am one man. 
  • OVERLOAD Fitness (our personal training facilities) can only serve those within a certain geographic reach. 

Therefore, we are limited on the amount of lives we can change. 

So here is the BREAKING NEWS I hinted at earlier this week.

OVERLOAD Fitness is expanding and opening up our first licensed facility in Austin, Texas this fall. 

Now here is where you fit in.

We are looking for an instructor to help us open this facility and implement the Renaissance Exercise philosophy and methods as we do in all of our OVERLOAD Fitness studios.

If you are interested in joining our team and working with us side by side then keep reading!  Keep in mind we are sharing this first with our private list before we make it public.


“If You Have Enthusiasm, A Positive Attitude, a Few Basic Fitness Skills and a Passion for Changing People’s Lives, I Have an Amazing and Fulfilling Exercise Specialist Position Just For You!”

Joshua Trentine Founder of OVERLOAD Fitness and Renaissance Exercise

And business is booming thus our opening in Austin, Texas.

I’m looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and energetic person to help us get this new facility off to a great start and then build it with speed! Since this is a new facility the potential for growth is whatever you make it.

When you’re ready to open up the (badly needed) NYC branch, gimmie a ring. I’ve been doing the “job” with inferior equipment & facilities for awhile now. Give me the proper tools, &…well, you already know what the possibilities are.

Hi Manny,
We would love to open up in all markets especially NYC!
This is precisely why we are expanding by licensing our business which will include certification, equipment and complete business systems including but not limited to website, marketing, advertising and facility and staff management.
If anyone is interested in partnering with us feel free to contact us at info@ren-ex.com.
Until then, keep doing the best you can with what you got!

What part of Austin is your facility located?

Be Well

Dunno yet…they are still trying to nail down the best spot.


avatar Scott Springston May 5, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Be careful out there in Texas. I hear some of the locals weren’t to friendly to those from the east coast side of the country, especially the Mass. area. ha ha..


avatar Joshua Trentine May 10, 2011 at 9:28 am

will do

You know the one thing I have to say about Joshua and this Renaissance movement is his enthusiasm!! ” Breaking News” !!!!! Whether Renaissance is the greatest thing since sliced bread or not his excitement over what he’s involved with makes one want to take part in it! Now days I find very little to get excited about in the fitness industry. It’s mostly the same old stuff regurgitated over and over again and the same old arguments over and over again. I’m envious of you Joshua! I wish I had a way to be a part of it but it’s really hard to be involved and understand it all with the internet as our only connection. Gee, I said the same thing 40 years ago with Nautilus but there wasn’t even an internet then. Who knows, some day Renaissance may be the new Nautilus? I wish your new Texas venture much success!!


avatar Joshua Trentine May 10, 2011 at 9:25 am

These are the most exciting and fulfilling times of my life

The entire RenEx team shares this level of enthusiasm and it’s showing up in the writing and products soon to be released

Scott, thank you for your best wishes


avatar Scott Springston May 11, 2011 at 11:09 am

In spite of how much we seem to fuss on the Darden forum about this stuff I’m serious when I think you guys will go places with your methods and machines. Even though I’m still a little skeptical of a lot of it, as I am a very cynical kind of guy who doesn’t believe in things until it’s proven to him, I do have this gut feeling that eventually you’ll be able to demonstrate to anyone’s doubt that the Renaissance way is a very good thing! It’s very frustrating being out here away from it all just as it was 40 years ago when Nautilus was beginning. One side of me can’t wait to see the new machines that are coming to you and the other side says don’t look as I won’t be able to ever use them anyway, ha ha.


avatar Terry Condrasky May 11, 2011 at 6:07 am

What attracted you and RenEx to Austin? I know RenEx will be a success here 🙂
Be Well
