It all depends on who your GM is

Current Employee - Assistant General Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Assistant General Manager in Dallas, TX

I have been working at LA Fitness full-time (less than a year)

Pros

For the most part good people, fun working enviornment, room to grow.

Cons

If you have a bad GM you will hate your job and as much as you're going to be there it's going to be your entire life. My first GM was awesome, had a passion for the job and wanted to see his people succeed. When he went to a new club the new GM came in and turned everything on its head. We had a sales counseler who'd been at the club for almost a year quit within a week because of how had the GM was. If you're going to be a fitness club GM you have to have some type of background in the fitness industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only hire managers with a fitness background.

    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Chicago, IL
    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at LA Fitness part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -A place to get some experience as a completely inexperienced trainer
    -Full membership with employment

    Cons

    -Amazingly low pay for personal trainers while clients pay just as much as they would for a well experienced trainer on their own

    -There was never a manager to go to with questions, they would just send you from person to person and never provide any help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on being more competitive with your pay rate and be more knowledgeable.
