I have been working at Gold's Gym part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay, good training, good advancement opportunities. Your duties are made clear from the start and nothing is too out of reach.

Cons

None really. Some rude members come through but that's about it.

    I worked at Gold's Gym full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They really will help you learn the business, teach you how to train and sell and manage your schedule. They will also hire non-certified trainers or trainers with a cert and no work experience, so it can be your first step into the world of training.

    Cons

    Management can be dangerously incompetent. We were threatened with dismissal if we didn't make goals EVERY SINGLE MONTH. They won't actually fire you unless you are breaking HR code in a pretty flagrant way, they'll just take away clients and drain your business, or suspend you for prohibitive amounts of time.

    This was in Seattle and I speak only about that franchise, I can't judge others having not worked for them.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the management of your individual gyms, if there is an average turn-over of 2 weeks for new trainers there might be a reason other than hiring "people who can't cut it" as I was told.
