    Pros

    You are not just selling gadgets you are helping people change their lives by improving their health and well being. The company is fantastic and ever changing to better themselves and they always listen to their employees feedback. The pay is great as long as you are doing the best you can and using all the tools the company provides you and it feels very much like you are running your own business. The training is as extensive as any company I have ever worked for to ensure you are an equipment sales specialist once you are through the training. Not enough great things to say, if you like sale and or being in the fitness industry this is a great place to work!

    Cons

    Working weekends but that is where you make the most money!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job, continue to innovate the fitness industry and continue to be receptive to employee feedback.

    Pros

    It's a very good environment at Gym Source. Company trainings on products and strategies are very helpful, and management is always available to answer questions or help out when needed. I like being able to use my own personality in my daily work and using my skills to find common ground with and assist clients. The company has also created fun challenges in order to help with productivity and build company rapport, even though certain stores are not close to each other. Definitely very solid compensation and opportunity to excel based on your own effort.

    Cons

    Not a 365 day boom in business. Some months are cyclical and some seasons are much better than others, but that's just the nature of how people spend their time in certain times of the year.

    Pros

    I get to sell the best equipment in the fitness industry and have the best support in terms of service and marketing. Extremely stable employment and fair pay, which is significantly better than other industry competitor.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance in any way. You can grow your sales, increase your network and make more money, but there is little to no growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage growth within the ranks.
