I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time for more than a year

Pros

If you get a good client base you can make good money.

Cons

Being able to get enough clients can be tough. The managers get all the best leads to sell personal training. There are a Loy of weekly meetings that you do not get paid for. It is an all commission job. Bad work/life balance. Normally work 50-60 hrs/ wk. Have to work all holidays and a lot of weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to make better connections from the membership advisors to the Personal trainers for new members. Split up new leads instead of giving them alto management.
