Mission: We Help People Achieve Their Potential Through Fitness!
I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time (Less than a year)
The regional leaders seem to care very much about the well-being of employees, or at least the personal trainer side does. They are always open to questions and concerns.

We also have a 3 day business course where the company has laid out all of the things needed to help you get your business started and running. It is very helpful - especially if, like me, you are not business minded at all. However, with the demographic and traffic flow at my gym, I don't feel that it will end up being a great fit for me.
They do take a good chunk of your percentage of PT sales, but it does cover the fact that you have thousands of potential new clients coming your way every week, full use of a huge gym and plenty of equipment, and no need to pay liability insurance.
