    I worked at LA Fitness (UK) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Free gym membership - AWESOME clients - Make my own schedule - Good PTD at time of employment - Easy Job for the most part

    Cons

    - Pay is lack luster - Hiring process was very unorganized - No opportunity for growth - Segregation among departments causes everyone to be on a different page. No one knows whats going on due to lack of communication. - Okay place to work, there isn't much motivation to go to work or exceed expectations due to lack of incentives, bad pay, and less than ethical company morale.

    I worked at LA Fitness (UK) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Only real pro is you get a free membership to the gym. If you are a personal trainer you also get to make your own schedule which is great.

    Cons

    Bad pay. No respect from supervisors. Everyone in the sales side of the company lies to customers and lies to each other. They will steal your commission every chance they get. From top to bottom management is unethical in the way they treat customers and employees.

    I have been working at LA Fitness (UK) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    built in clientele, existing member base

    Cons

    lack of professionalism and or experience of (some, not all) management staff. company views top grossing sales, either in membership, personal training, or collections, as grounds for advancement/promotion. GM are top membership sales, PTD are top personal training sales, OM are top collections agents. they are not necessarily skilled managers of people/staff.

    I worked at LA Fitness (UK) part-time

    Pros

    coworkers enjoyable to work with, free gym membership, enjoyed working with clients

    Cons

    This company has shady business practices. First, I was called a master trainer even though I was new to personal training. I did very well on my exam and passed on the first try, and I believe I knew the personal training material very well; however, I felt uncomfortable being listed as a master trainer without enough experience. I had clients who seemed to very much enjoy working with me, but the company charges too much to attract enough clients to make a decent living. It also appears that the personal training sales people do not divide up the new clients fairly, but probably keep them for themselves and train them, even though they may not have certifications. Also, the company appears to change how much they charge for both membership and training based on how much they think they can get from each customer. Basically, the company seems shady and needs to charge for personal training based on the financial abilities of the population that resides around each company location. The company's business policies are too rigid and lack integrity.

    the biggest problem is the pay. if the split was better it would help. you only get paid if training,
