Pros

Free gym membership. Learned how to lie and manipulate people. Sad.

Cons

Work off the clock or you won't make money. Work 90+ hours a week and if you don't break commission you get paid minimum wage. Commission is broke when you make more selling memberships than you would hourly. Gorilla Marketing ~ Must find your own leads to generate business. Management gets all walk ins. Even when goals are reached they set them even higher to be unachievable.

Advice to Management

Demeaning employees is not a motivator. Your turn over is so high because you simply do care about employees. You use them until they are broken down and have no soul left.

    Pros

    Free Gym membership, Absolutely no accountability as long as you are selling, Free parking.

    Cons

    Minimum wage plus commission (which they take back if the client does ,and they will, cancel their membership) and bonuses which you will hardly see due to their horrible accounting practices. The training packages they try and sell are overpriced for the level of service they provide. How can you expect a paying client to continue to pay upwards of $200+ a month for a training package when they are being guided by a trainer who gets paid $6 for a 25 minute session. The trainers are a joke at LA Fitness and most clients will likely figure this out within their first month and then try and cancel when they discover an even better trainer at the local gym or park who charges less and delivers more.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your product. The trainers! If you want to keep loyal customers, invest in the education and quality of your trainers so that they can feel valued and deliver superior results to the clients.
