    I have been working at Life Time Fitness as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing facility and company-highly recommend working for them.

    Cons

    Like any gym, when you are new the schedule is already in place so you have to do what is takes to get a spot instructing, subbing first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Must have a national group fitness cert. I had to obtain one in order to instruct there.

  2.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great fitness facility. You receive a full membership($120/month value), and it is a more laid back atmosphere.

    Cons

    The location I worked at had absolutely zero direction. I worked in a couple of departments, and their was never a serious upper-management person who knew what they were doing.

  3.  

    High Turnover Rate

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

    Pros

    Room for growth, never a guarantee. You never know who will be replace or terminated.

    Cons

    set up for failure, do not provide the right training and tools

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    advice to CEO look at the cost loss for continuing having General Management Specialist terminate anyone, the cost it will take to replace and retrain. Replace them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
