  1. "Personal Trainer"

    I worked at LA Fitness (UK)

    Pros

    Free membership. You create your own schedule and very flexible.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides working for LA Fitness as a personal trainer are: no benefits, poor management, and low commission rates. Depending on management, there is no formal training once you are hired. There is no guideline in conducting assessments and creating training programs. You have to be willing to learn as you go. You only get paid when clients show up but can charge them for a no show. Unfortunately, this is where it gets controversial and in many cases results in disputes and arguments.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    You do nothing besides walk outside and try to persuade people everyday to get a membership. The pay is minimum wage until you go passed your quota for the pay period and its un likely you will get passed that quota until you are there for at least 4 month. so good luck paying your bills.

    Cons

    underpaid, making false promotion deals, no benefits, sketchy co managers.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free gym membership?? Honestly, I can't really think of any pros besides that...

    Cons

    Upper managment is terrible and there are tons of sleeze-balls that work for the company. No benefits. Don't promote from within. Terrible turnover. They treat their members and their employees like garbage.

    Terrible pay, absolutely no benefits for trainers and no chance to move up within the company or become a higher level trainer
