Dear Mr. Reynolds:

I found out about your need for a personal fitness trainer on JobBankUSA.com. I believe I am a good fit for your facility. I have a college degree in physical fitness, experience as a general trainer in Bob's Gym in Houston, and am now ready to focus on personal training with individual clients.

Most personal fitness trainers specialize in weights, machines, and movement. While I am accomplished in all three areas, I bring something extra--a knowledge of nutrition and vitamin 'therapy,' which I share with clients one-on-one to help them support what they do while in the gym with nutrition while they're away.

I'm writing this cover letter in hopes that we can meet in person to discuss the type of work I'd be doing if you decide to hire me. If we can get together I feel certain you will see that I'm the person for the job.

I am currently working part-time and have afternoons available for interviews. Are you free one day next week? I'll be happy to come to the center and meet you there. Please call me at 786-909-9098 to set up a time.
