    Pros

    The perks and the people are amazing! Getting paid to workout is always a great option.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always communicate their expectations and goals. A mentorship program should be more than listening to one's phone calls on occasion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more empowerment to employees and be more approachable when an employee needs help.

    Pros

    The environment is fun, energetic, positive

    Cons

    You are expected to teach classes for free, offer free nutrition coaching, and split any commissions you do earn with a clients personal trainer - even if they didn't refer them to you. Since the position is 100% commission there is no way to make money. Reality is that you are paid the same as a trainer but I've done nutrition coaching for 10+ years and, I'm sorry, people just DO NOT need or want to come see the dietitian for 12 visits like they do with the trainers. RDs can not make money at this job unless they're in corporate like Cindy, Anika, or Jessica.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RDs have more education than your trainers and they also have more options in the workplace than your trainers. When you offer a base salary to your RDs and compensate them fairly you will see a lot less turnover. If not, RDs will keep moving on. There are multiple positions out there available to RDs. Trainers don't really have many other choices. The 2 disciplines are NOT the same!
