    Pros

    There are five level of personal trainers. Fitness coach, Specialist 1, 2, 3, and Fitness Expert. Everyone starts as a Fitness coach. Promotions through those ranks are given based on how many sessions were trained in previous quarter. To be an Expert means you make 60 percent of about $70/hour. It also means that you've proved to be successful at renewing clients, delivering results, and selling. To be an expert, you must be training at least 25-30 sessions a week. I was promoted to expert after 4 months. I average $33-40 for a 1 hour session. Train 10 clients a day 5 days a week and you're making around 80 or 90k. Time flies and you're helping out.. Not a bad gig.

    Cons

    It's a lot of fun but you better be good at hustling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing specific I can think of

    Pros

    some clubs are beautiful and clean for members

    Cons

    upper management rules through fear and intimidation. The teams in-club feel this pressure and the culture and environment is uncomfortably hostile, members comment regularly that they 'run the good people out'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pressure the behaviors to get the results you want, not the numbers. stop micro-managing and trust who you hire- or don't hire them.
