Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Life Time Fitness part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great for students and they work well around your schedule if you are part-time. You also get a free membership.

Cons

Little or no raises. You also have to purchase your own uniforms. They often over hire so you work minimal hours.

Advice to Management

There is one trainer that I know of that obviously has a close enough comfort level with his clients that his language is foul and he talks about other clients in negative ways to them.

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

    Pros

    Great company to build your business, innovative products and services, excellent facility, upward advancement in personal training department, and opportunity to learn and utilize leadership skills. Awesome company to build skills in industry and eventually start your own small business if you have the start-up itch. 100% commission could be great or terrible depending on your fit in the industry and work ethic. This club is located in a very affluent area of Overland Park, KS - Johnson County, KS. Build relationships with enough members, and you'll meet lots of people with disposable income to invest in PT services.

    Cons

    Sometimes corporate initiatives are not aligned with customer/client goals. Managerial tasks are very administrative and time consuming at times running reports or looking over excel spreadsheets. To do well, you may need to work 60+ hours to generate revenue. Although it's a top notch health club, the department will periodically hire unmotivated trainers unwilling to learn or improve their skills giving personal trainers an unprofessional image.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meeting new people every day and becoming familiar with the regulars. Love the people i work with.

    Cons

    Not much compensation but the front desk really isnt hard work, so it's justified.

    Advice to Management

    Member retention needs to be looked into. Losing members left and right
