I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I have seen advisers make sickening amounts of money
young/fun culture
free meals and drinks often
great training program
free gym membership ( Though I never had time to use it)
great on-boarding pay for first 6 months
Loved the sales managers and GM I had at my location- extremely helpful and kind.
Relatively fun and easy position.

Cons

Very high turnover
It wasn't surprising to see advisers working entire months without days off to hit personal targets.
To be successful you will need to put in between 65-80 hours each week.
You never get weekends off. Most advisers work holidays.
Bad work/life balance. I felt married to my career.

Advice to Management

Start encouraging your workers to live the healthy way of life.
Promote those who are eager to inspire and teach. Not those who are only good for working 28 days straight.
Don't use non-paid days off as *gifts*.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay can be good if you keep and get a lot of clients.
    For a corporate gym, this is the best opportunity to make good money.

    Cons

    Can be long days. High pressure sales. If you are meeting goals, things can be ok.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to micromanage so much. It causes stress all the way down the ladder.

    Pros

    Free workout facilities for employees and discounts on products. Hours are always available since they are 24/hr

    Cons

    The non-stop lying to employees and negative environment to work in. The internal politics is appauling for a company within this kind of market and the upper management is corrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better (like they're real people)
