looking 4 fitness job

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for any kind of job, preferably in fitness industry.
I have 7 years of experience in fitness, from receptionist to gym instructor, personal trainer and manger.
I have a tfn, insurance, Medicare, bank account, fitness Australia certification in personal training.
If you have other job opportunity I already have a RSA certification for whole Australian states and territories (even NSW)
I'm Italian, I have willing to work.
I have a whv, but I can change my visa after 6 month of job into a student visa or any other type.
Now I live in Sydney ultimo, but I can move myself in every part of Australia in a couple of days.

Hi, have you tried applying for fitness positions? I see heaps of them around and since you've got the relevant qualifications I honestly feel it shouldn't be hard for you at all.


Medicals completed 03/08/12. Arrived on 04/07/2012.
Working rights applied on 14/10/2012. Working rights granted 29/10/2012.

I applied everywhere: gyms, rehab, websites, but everyone said me that I have to request an abn number and pay a rent to the gym to work as personal trainer.
I can request an abn number, but I prefer to pay not a rent for work.
There are lots of gym without rent, but they don't want a whv.
When I was luck they said to me that my whv is not the right visa for them, they prefer a permanent visa.
I tried to tell them that I'm not here to travel but to work.

I would assume that a lot of expats with high pressure jobs would be happy to take on a personal trainer to help them stay fit?
