    I worked at Gold's Gym part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Fantastic Environment
    - Good Pay
    - Covers CEU (sorda)
    - Great Place to get experience as a PT and Sale
    - Free membership & discounts at gym store
    - Flexible Schedule
    - 10% Commission on new sales

    Cons

    - Hours include early mornings and late nights
    - Must be good at sales
    - Nontraining hours don't pay as much
    - must be ok with working unpaid hours to get sales
    - Get stood up a lot doing mypath/fitness profiles
    - No commission of EFT sales (took it away)

    Advice to Management

    Provide trainers with sales classes or something. Personally I came into this job with a degree and PT Cert and was well equipped for providing training but hit a road block with selling training. I never got much support from managers in sales just griped for not making more.

    Pros

    Interact with lots of different people and fitness levels, opportunities for growth on the corporate ladder

    Personal trainers have to hustle for their own clients, and get about half or less of the cut depending on your experience

    Pros

    Very health centric environment. The company is constantly building and growing so they're doing something right. There are great perks, free memberships, 401K with matching, health insurance, meeting amazing people decided to health and fitness.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't do much to work with members and support staff decisions. Bottom line is a constant focus and sometimes employee satisfaction takes a back seat.
