Career Progression: Exercise Specialist > Director of Personal Training > Assistant Manager > Site Leader > Vice President, Service Delivery
Seith began his career as an Exercise Specialist in 2006. Working at a large facility, he was able to learn from both his leadership team and from mentors throughout the organization. After two years, he earned the opportunity to serve clients as the Director of Personal Training and Assistant Manager. As a member of the site leadership team, he continued to learn from his mentors, while also forming a close relationship with the Site Leader and the senior leadership.
As Assistant Manager, Seith was able to grow as a leader by managing a team of Personal Trainers and Group Fitness Instructors. In 2012, he became the Site Leader at a new facility, assisting with the design and development of the facility, onboarding team members and launching a unique brand. Six years later, Seith was chosen to lead a regional team of site leaders, serving clients throughout Southern California as a Vice President of Service Delivery. Leading others has always been a goal for Seith; help from his mentors and the senior leadership team allowed him to reach this goal while also improving the lives of his team and clients.
In Seith’s initial interview, he asked the hiring manager what makes this company different from other fitness companies. His interviewer quickly answered, “We are not a fitness company — we are a customer service company that happens to manage fitness facilities.” This service culture has been a driving force behind Seith’s career satisfaction and the length of his tenure. Optum Workplace Well-being remains Seith’s employer of choice because of the great relationships he has with his colleagues and the network of professionals throughout the country that he can count on anytime.
