    Pros

    Life Time takes chances on young professionals. If you're smart, fast, and driven, you won't find a company that will grow your skills and career faster. For being so large, it's a relatively flat organization, so the opportunities for work in many different areas and levels are exciting.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. You believe in your work, and most of your co-workers do, too, so it's energizing; but if it isn't for you, there is a big risk of burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being the pace-setter for not only the fitness, and champions for millennials.

    Pros

    -free Platinum membership -easy to work in many parts of the gym (birthday parties, child center, rock wall, etc) -discounts in the cafe and spa

    Cons

    -The average salary for a babysitter in this area is $10-$15/hour, yet we get paid $8/hour to watch way more kids than a babysitter would -You must purchase uniforms -You get sent home when there aren't enough children in the child center

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees better instead of expecting us to know how to handle every little situation.

    Pros

    The members have a lot of money which means almost all of them can afford training. They are cutting edge when it comes to health and wellness.

    Cons

    The management is money driven and will not stop pushing you all the way up to the end of the month. They increase your sales goal every month even if you have a full plate of clients. They will go out of the scope of practice telling you to sell blood testing which is not morally right for a fitness trainer to do. They will make you work on your day off if you haven't reached your sales goal even if you have already made plans on those days in advance. If you want to feel like a fitness trainer working in a used car dealership Lifetime is the place for you if you want to help people and make a good living look elsewhere for a job.

    Pros

    You get to meet great people. if your good at what you do your clients will tip you well. love the employees and amber was a great manager.

    Cons

    You only get paid commission at 50% of your services. On the plus side you don't have to buy product, though that to me is a con because they buy cheaper product than u would like to use on my clients.

    Advice to Management

    pay more

    Pros

    Amazing potential for a full fledged career.

    Cons

    Alignment is the focus. Management requires all boxes get checked with zero follow through or explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Ridiculous trackers and ever changing "pivots" seem pointless and are difficult to communicate to a team of professionals.

    Pros

    -Great facility to train clients and also to stay in shape. -Discounts on Nutritional supplements and free gym membership. -Good pay for Personal trainers. -Lots of traffic at the gym which is good for Personal trainers.

    Cons

    -Personal training management plays favorites and are shady. -Personal trainers are two faced and will steal your clients without any hesitation. -Same BS with every gym, unrealistic quotas so corporate can get fat and rich. -Management always bothering you about talking to members on the floor. -If they favor you as a trainer they will give you new clients like candy. But if you are not favored they will let you fend for yourself then fire you for not hitting quota with no help at all. -

    Advice to Management

    Treat every trainer the same, don't play favorites and leave other trainers to fend for themselves. You fools had the nerves to fire me when you didn't provide me with the help i needed as a new trainer, karma will come back on all of you.

    Pros

    State of the art facilities/equipment Valuable sales training Surrounded with highly skilled peers from whom you can learn a LOT

    Cons

    It's all about the numbers. The company regularly beings in "new meat" grinds it up, uses it up, and spits it out. Pressure to sell is relentless Ranks among the worst companies I have EVER worked for (I'm 53 and have been consistently employed since I was 15) in terms of employee treatment/morale.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making ur employees happy ( aka Southwest Corporate Culture) turnover will slow and the profits will take care of themselves.
