    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
