    I have been working at Lifestyle Family Fitness full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The relationships that are developed with staff and clients. Working in a health club is very rewarding helping people change their lifestyle.

    Cons

    For me not overworking myself. I really involve myself with my work and tend to work more than the average person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work and great benfits and incentives.

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly staff, and great equipment. Was beneficial in helping us acquire new clients and supplied a state-of-the-art training studio. Commission was good.

    Cons

    Hourly rate was too low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase hourly rate to commensurate with the commission rate.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, get to meet lots of people coming into the clubs. Help people get started to achieving better health.

    Cons

    Too much politics, if not in tight with higher ups much more was expected from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone can sell doesn't mean they can manage.

    Very high-pressure sales environment

    I worked at Lifestyle Family Fitness full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free gym membership, way to get started in sales

    Cons

    High-pressure sales tactics, pressure from management to bring in an expected amount of leads/appointments/sales per day. If you don't mind calling people numerous times to set appointments and/or going out into the community and approaching strangers to get them into the gym then it might be ok for you.

    Former Employee - Kids Club in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Lifestyle Family Fitness

    Pros

    Having no experience working as a personal trainer or even a sales rep, I can only describe what it was like working in the Kids Club. Working with these children at LFF for 2 years was the most rewarding job I could have asked for. All the parents were wonderful and it really felt like a family. I've been gone from the company for a year now and I still get updates from some of the families, it was such a wonderful experience.

    Cons

    The only negative thing I can say is that they refuse all requests for a pay raise. It's the only reason I had to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer employees something more than minimum wage. even if it's just a quarter more. That would go a long way.
