    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked here because i needed a summer job and they offered many great benefits that brought a lot of insight to my well being as a person

    Cons

    The company is a corporate worm-hole you have very little room for personal growth, and they brain-wash employees into providing the utmost care for the smallest compensatiton.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    The employees and clients were fun to be around. The atmosphere was always positive and upbeat. The free membership was a bonus

    Cons

    The hours were terrible. The benefits were non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better and the turn around rate won't be so high

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    My job is to change lives, positively. We have great resources to help people make those changes. Immensely rewarding. Great for someone single who wants to work a ton of hours and advance. Benefits are a little costly but OK. Great sales opportunities if you like to sell.

    Cons

    It seems LT gets so caught up in revenue that the drive becomes more about the sales # than the potential life changing outcome. Lack of consistency and lack of great leadership is causing many to leave the company. Some get promoted too fast and egos take over. If you are married with kids, it is hard to have a work life balance and make a decent living. Your budgets are determined by past performance so you are ALWAYS expected to do more. Hero 1 month, villain another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the CEO - Not all the AD's and Regional Leads are aligned. That filters down to the front line as a huge dysfunction. You are growing too fast and your NPS will show it over the next 9 to 18 months. Additionally there are so many transfers and promotions out to other regions that this becomes even more apparent. Take better care of your people. Learn how deliver clear expectations and coach accordingly. You give up on tenured team members way to fast. Clearly not the premier employer you once were.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with, my team, and also the other managers I work with are great. GM is relatively understanding when you have to take a sick day/kid is sick. Get to talk to a lot of interesting people and help them achieve their fitness goals.

    Cons

    I am a salaried employee. My days off are Friday and Sunday. And yet, I still have to go in every other Sunday for mandatory staff meetings, and am asked to work on Fridays to assist with club events. I end up working an ungodly amount of hours and get 1 or two complete days off each month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees their days off. They will get burned out.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people.... thats really it, unless you enjoy cleaning. You will always be busy.

    Cons

    Management does not care about you personally, members are stuck up and are super demanding, and so is management, the GM checks your work all the time, and you have to clean toilets and will see a lot of disgusting things in the operations department. The pay isn't what it should be for the amount of work they give us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more, treat employees better.
