    Pros

    Super chill work environment. Get to wear sweats, nikes, and t-shirt to work. Very good pay. If you hustle can even make much more.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is when you start in the sales team the only leads you can use are basically the cold internet leads. You get no walk ins (which are the easiest to sell). At least this is how it was at my gym. This did make me a hustler though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of my general managers micromanaged. No need to micromanage in sales. Simply fire them.
