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

    Pros

    The people I worked with legitimately wanted to help the members achieve their goals.
    Management, at a local level, worked hard and did what they could to help team members as well as members.
    Management, at a local level, was supportive and encouraged growth.
    Departmental support team was great and always helpful.

    Cons

    Management, at a corporate level, was in it for the money not the team member.
    Sadly, the mentality of the corporate offices was "what have you done for me lately."
    Expectations for their management team is HIGH yet they pay them very little for the amount of stress they are under and the work they do.

    Advice to Management

    Support your team members in action not just words. The "golden rule" should apply to your team members as well as your members.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time

    Pros

    Life Time Fitness is a great company that is expanding in many directions. Life Clinic is the Chiropractic and Physical Therapy company inside of various Life Time Fitness locations. Having a sports medicine office inside of a gym means you are constantly able to see patients.

    Cons

    There can sometimes be a disconnect between management and positions like Rehabilitation Specialists.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication through in-person meetings.

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

    Pros

    Free gym membership. Flexible Hours

    Cons

    They run with a minimal staff that does not create the best experience from my time there. They work you to the bone on minimal pay.

    Advice to Management

    If your company Slogan is "The Healthy Way of Life Company", it would be a great image to provide all employees (both part time and full time) insurance. Do not hire more part time employees to flush those good employees under the 34 hours requirement.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere
    Good benefits
    Steady paycheck
    Good education

    Cons

    Pay system changes without notice
    Deceitful GM
    Will tell you anything to keep you working
    No flexibility in hours
    Micromanagement
    Cult feel to employees

    Advice to Management

    This could be a very fun place to work. Everyone seems to take it way too seriously though. LTF sells fitness, not life and death. If the club management could relax a little, the morale of the club would go up.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best work environment I ever had the pleasure to work in. My GM Jeff Sandru was a great leader and took great care of all his team members. I miss LTF daily.

    Cons

    Like all the other have said pay wasn't enough to survive on for the work asked of me. I did my job very well but in the end felt I was being paid peanuts for my time put into LTF.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your full time employees and management like they're worth it. We hear about the money coming in but the pay doesn't reflect that if you're not a MEA or GM
