I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

You never have an excuse to miss a workout since you work at the gym. You also get employee discounts on heart rate monitors, personal training, massage, and cafe purchases in addition to a free membership.

Cons

If you are considering working here you may as well move in because they will own your life. There is absolutely no work life balance. Everyday is about sales sales sales. They rarely promote good service but will always give props to those that sell products that members do not need. A majority of the trainers are incredibly incompetent and the management is usually young and immature without a clue of what real leadership is. The corporate office dictates everything and does not allow management to make adjustments based on its facility needs leaving employees frustrated. Management will make incredible promises regarding income that I have not seen anybody hit, and I have been there a very long time. There are often payroll errors made so you better check your paycheck often.

Advice to Management

Stop the fraternization. The CEO does not need 8 assistants to follow him around and answer his phones and do what ever else he asks.
Stop lying to employees. Several of us are smarter than you and can smell BS before it walks in the door. Get rid of the draw system. It is destroying the fitness industry.

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

    Pros

    Lifetime Fitness was great. As long as you did you job nothing bad would happen to you and no one would ask any questions.

    Cons

    If you did however want to move up in positions it mattered less about how long you had been there or how well you did at your job, it mattered how much the departments heads liked you. This was true in multiple departments.

    Advice to Management

    Consider paying the lifeguards more for their work. Even though most are high school kids the level of certifications is too high to get paid $8 an hour.
