    I worked at GoodLife Fitness full-time (less than an year)


    Good salary if sales goals are met.
    Room for advancement
    TSN is usually visible during the majority of your shift.


    Bottom line is only thing that matters with Goodlife. I am very passionate about fitness and helping people and was initially excited about working for Goodlife. However it took me less then a week to realize I was simply there to collect as many bank account numbers as possible and sell expensive generic "personal training" sessions that paid the personal trainers peanuts. The program for the first few months is exactly the same for all new members, so I use the word "personal" very loosely here.

    The sales tactics they teach are manipulative and coercive. The staff turnover was incredible due to pressure from management to hit targets. I lasted 6 months and saw 5 others come and go in my small club in that time period. When goals are not met "punishment" by management is handed out, feels very much like public school.

    Overall, very disappointed with what should be a great Canadian fitness company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on member retention, not simply trying to sell hundreds of memberships each month to replace the hundreds of cancelled memberships.

    Offer options that reward employees and provide a good price point for customers for various contract terms, not only the vaunted one year contract.

    Lower personal training prices and contract lengths. Let trainers train, do not employ them as sales people. Increase personal trainer rates in order to provide incentive to stay and grow a business. You will see short term loss, however gain a much stronger brand loyalty due to better customer and employee satisfactions.

    If this is actually forwarded to Goodlife mangement, feel free to allow them to contact me at the email I have provided for this account.
