I worked at LA Fitness part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I was able to teach class however I wanted because no one ever came and watched my class to see if I was following the guidelines or any other similar class for that matter.
Memebership is low priced.

Cons

I worked at two different locations.I was teacher. One of the locations actually did not supply me with a cd player for over a year, so no music for the class! The front desk staff was generally uninformed of whatever questions people seemed to have. One club was dirty and things like the towel wringer were broken without being fixed. The manager was repeatedly rude to the club members . The members always complained about poor service. The member and employee turnover was and I suspect still is due to the disatisfaction level.Basically, what I saw was the club is always trying to increase it's membership so the mamagers, employees were stressed at the numbers level they were expected to obtain.Also, the managers would drive insane distances( 1-1 1/2 hrs sometimes) to a club rather tahn being placed in thier local area or somewhat local area. Pay is exceptionally low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at LA Fitness part-time for 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.
