Pros

If you get a good client base you can make good money.

Cons

Being able to get enough clients can be tough. The managers get all the best leads to sell personal training. There are a Loy of weekly meetings that you do not get paid for. It is an all commission job. Bad work/life balance. Normally work 50-60 hrs/ wk. Have to work all holidays and a lot of weekends.

Advice to Management

Find a way to make better connections from the membership advisors to the Personal trainers for new members. Split up new leads instead of giving them alto management.

    Pros

    pay was nice considering i got the job right out of school

    Cons

    the pressure for sales was INSANE. 70+ hour weeks. literally had boss shout in my face on a daily basis. ended up leaving because i feared for my physical well being. the turnover is comical. you work there for 3 months and unless you steal enough sales from people and do enough shady behind the scenes things, they get rid of you. they dont have the decency to fire you though. they will give all your sales to other employees until you get fed up and quit.

    Advice to Management

    i wouldnt know where to begin.

    Pros

    The perks and the people are amazing! Getting paid to workout is always a great option.

    Cons

    Management doesn't always communicate their expectations and goals. A mentorship program should be more than listening to one's phone calls on occasion.

    Advice to Management

    Give more empowerment to employees and be more approachable when an employee needs help.
