    I have been working at Life Time Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture geared towards health and fitness. You have to be willing to grind in order to be successful. With a minimal base salary the emphasis is placed on creating your own book of business to have an income that suits your level of expertise, drive and passion to excel.

    Cons

    The pack of work life balance makes this a profession that some places be with a family should think twice. You will work 6 days out of the week with long hours each day if you want to be successful but your pay will reflect your work ethic

    Pros

    The pay, people , environment , discounts , and management attitude is great. I also loved how much overtime was available in the summers for my position.

    Cons

    It has a lot of the normal cons of a job , no job is perfect . Overall the good outweighs the bad here.

    Advice to Management

    As for the cafe we need to invest in more capital investments. Such as new floors every 10 years , order screens so we don't lose tickets , and an office for all cafe managers so we don't have to do paperwork next to the coffee station .

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Life Time Fitness is by far the best company I have had the pleasure of working for. I currently work as a Supervisor in Aquatics in Troy, MI. I have had many jobs before my employment at LTF, including local community centers, & Goldfish Swim School and my experiences with this company have been life altering. Life Time has not only taught me how to handle any costumer service issue thrown my way with a smile on my face, but so far in my 1 year 1 month journey, I have learned more about the health/fitness industry than I have ever known in my entire life. This is a company that truly wants to see you succeed in your personal goals, as well as the company and does love to promote from within. I truly believe Life Time is the (well deserved) leader of the health and fitness industry, and can't wait to see what is in store for us in the upcoming years.

    Cons

    Starting off, you are paid a base wage which is typical for every company you could work for. Lifetime wages are based off of a points scale. Meaning, the better you do in different areas of your job the more points you earn. Your wage is then evaluated every quarter (3 months), based on the amount of points you earn. Truly your work ethic is your wage determining factor.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Get a free membership out of it- HUGE perk. The people are so kind and fun to work with. You are around people who want to better themselves, and that it truly inspirational.

    Cons

    Absolutely no cons. I have worked there for three years, and have nothing bad to say about it. Maybe except for the fact that since it is a fitness club we don't typically get holidays off- and we don't get time and a half for working on holidays.

    Pros

    The gym and equipment are top notch. Most of the staff is very friendly.

    Cons

    Communication from upper management is slow. Company changes policies and pricings often without consulting or occasionally informing all the affected staff.

    Advice to Management

    Use your resources, your workers, to help come up with ideas that will appeal to customers in the area, don't just mandate changes from above.
