    Pros

    I work with an awesome team, I have an awesome boss, I enjoy what I do, flexibility with having to be at a desk but also getting to be on your feet, good for a part time job

    Cons

    You will never recieve over time hours, the system provided to assist members could be more efficient, other than that nothing.. LOVE what I do!

    Advice to Management

    It would be better if all departments were all on the same page. From the front line team members, to the operations staff knowing the in and outs of the club, providing the mark above excellence is essential to success at Lifetime Fitness. If all team members were trained more on just a few things, it could potentially help all dynamics of the club.

    Pros

    Compensation is fair, with top performers earning in the 80k range. Work experience is varied, as you are responsible for personal sales and the team as a whole. You do get to maintain about a quarter of your time as a personal trainer, so you still get to enjoy client interaction and program design.

    Cons

    The varied tasks associated with the role are daunting and overwhelming at times. You will be expected to succeed at multiple tasks simultaneously, regardless of your expertise in a given area or support given to you. For instance, I was part of a department that only had 2 people in this position instead of 3. The expectations were the same, it just meant that we had to work more hours, with more stress.

    Advice to Management

    Work on better delegation of goals. Employees need to have attainable tasks or turnover will continue to be a problem.

    Pros

    Great place to work, free membership, facility was always kept nice, and the guests were great, and we got a discount at the café.

    Cons

    Should have paid more for the work that was out it. The place is very busy for when you want to work out, and they charge a lot for their membership.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing hat youre doing, they are very cool and nice managers and work with you when you need them.

    Pros

    Good education for employees
    Good amount of hours available to work

    Cons

    Too much emphasis placed on revenue.
    No leniency for overtime, time off, vacations, even sick days.
    Have an opinion? Don't voice it.
    Upper management fails to understand how the front line staff works and treats them poorly, unfairly, and refuse to help when needed.
    A complete man's world atmosphere. Women are not treated fairly unless working with a fellow woman.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the lower level staff. It's usually their supervisors and managers who are lying and doing almost no work. If someone comes to you with that, address it.
