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

    Pros

    The training they provide for personal trainers is excellent. It was ongoing throughout my employment, almost monthly. My health knowledge base grew way beyond what is normally expected of personal trainers.

    Cons

    As with most gyms, there is high turnover in staff. So bottom tier leadership changed pretty frequently.
