    ProsFast paced, highly demanding organization that attempts to be on the cutting edge of all things Healthy way of life.

    ConsWork life suffers almost constantly
    Focus on hitting current month numbers outweighs everything else that might be of any importance

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your team members- we love what Lifetime stands for but too many are put out by the amazingly high demands of the company.

    All about sales, sales, sales.

    Personal Trainer (Current Employee) Syosset, NY

    ProsPeople you work can understand your frustration with the job.

    ConsManagement controls your mind. They tell you that you have to approach and talk to every single person you see. The job as a personal trainer has almost nothing to do with how good you are at training, but rather what kind of salesperson you can be. Pay structure is a major concern. You are paid on a draw pay structure and management sets outrageous sales goals for each trainer. Under the draw pay plan, you can potentially owe the company money even after working 40+ hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop using draw pay. It's the reason why I will be resigning. Upper management gets huge salaries and the trainers who are in the trenches working long hours on their feet all day deserve more financial security.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    No work Life Balance

    ProsPay as a Manager is very good. Great People! Free family membership.

    Consno work life balance for someone with a family. very quota driven which makes you take the eye off the goal of making people healthy. you sell bad memberships that you know will attrit out just to get your goal.

    Horrible company to work for unless you are greedy.

    Certified Personal Trainer (Former Employee)

    ProsFree membership and discounted services.

    ConsUpper management pretends to care and they do no at all. The company itself drives meaningless projects to try to earn the next dime for the CEO and his team. Horrible work-life balance for those people in the clubs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being greedy and actually care about people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsThe pay scale is horrible, although there is room to advance it monetarily is not worth much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees more,.
