    I have been working at LA Fitness full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No cap to income
    Quick Upward Mobility based on performance
    Get to help people daily
    Growing company
    Not sitting in a cubicle
    Get to impact a community
    Free gym membership
    Health and Dental Benefits
    Full time positions
    No cold calling
    No going door to door

    Most people do not realize that working in a gym can lead to making 6 figures within 5 years from start date of entry level. The company promotes from within so those that have achieved 6 figures per year in most cases started as entry level with the company. You get to learn from those that have worked their way up through performance.

    Cons

    Not a 9 to 5 job. However, when you love what you do working 48 hours at something you love beats working 40 hours at a job you are not passionate about
