    Pros

    Concentrate on training instead of selling

    Cons

    Pay rate is not indicative of experience. And advancement seems next to impossible. Also, For a gym against lunks, the way that fitness classes are set up separates training into body parts. This is how bodybuilders train. The majority of women that come to my design your own program are looking for fat loss, albeit in a nonjudgemental atmosphere. They will not get to their goals if trained via bodypart as the schedule suggests. And this sends out the WRONG message. If planet fitness is against lunk type people, we should not be training people in this style.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if general managers and regional managers asked the fitness instructors for input into the design of the free fitness classes. Also would be great if the general and regional managers were more supportive of the staff instead of constantly finding faults. This makes for a workplace I do not look forward to stepping into.
