I worked at Life Time Fitness

Pros

It was a good part time job with friendly people to work with. Good pay for the job you're doing in some areas.

Cons

Management wasn't always the most organized. They were good, but not as great as they claim to be.

Advice to Management

While it was a nice place to work, more encouragement and guidance.

    Not a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Free workout facilities for employees and discounts on products. Hours are always available since they are 24/hr

    Cons

    The non-stop lying to employees and negative environment to work in. The internal politics is appauling for a company within this kind of market and the upper management is corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better (like they're real people)

  2. Helpful (1)

    All that matters is the money you bring in, not how much you actually help the members.

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule as a trainer for the most part. (You have shifts, but as a commissioned employee they can't make you work specific hours.)
    - Good way to learn the basics of being a trainer: Client management, programming, and sales/marketing yourself as a trainer.
    - Time you spend with your clients is amazing, you actually do make a difference in their lives and you get to see some amazing transformations as well.

    Cons

    - It doesn't matter how well your clients do in reaching their fitness goals, if they don't sign up for more sessions every month, the company doesn't care.
    - You spend hours everyday and week having "meetings" where management berates you for not hitting sales goals.
    - Even if you hit goals, there's always a service/product of the month they make you push on every client whether it's right for the client or not.
    - Level of education among trainers is hit or miss. If you see a trainer teaching something wrong, you're not supposed to help their clients.
    - Too much politics/high school-esque drama/cliques. You're either in the popular crowd or you're on the outside and you get no help and have to fend for yourself.
    - Completely commission based job, if you don't sell anything - you don't make any money.
    - You work all day, every day when you're trying to make sales/get clients - splits shifts, mornings and nights, weekends, and you work 18 hours on the last day of the month to try and make your department's sales quotas - No life!

    Advice to Management

    It starts at the corporate level. I understand the idea behind commission based jobs, but you're robbing clients of real results when the advice they're given is driven by money and not the actual well-being of the clients. Treating people right is more important than selling them another thing!
