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

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

    The facilities are seriously top-notch. I've worked for several different big and small name fitness companies, and there's are tough to beat. So obviously the free membership is great. Usually an energetic environment, and convenient spa, cafe, and child-care.

    Cons

    During my time here (a few years), I was sexually harassed by a team member, stalked by a member, not paid for hours I worked, and blatently lied to by managers. I reported all these things and nothing was ever done. It looks like a great place, and leadership will tell you it's the greatest company on earth to work for. It is not. The number of sexual harassment incidents that go on in this company that management turns a blind eye to is sickening. It's a boy's club with no concern for team members whatsoever. Do. Not. Work. Here.
