    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time

    Pros

    Being able to work in a foreign market is a unique opportunity. I get to have an impact locally in the U.S. with my PT clientele as well as having an impact in the European market.

    Cons

    Learning the ever changing applications for various devices. Too many upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on standardization. How many times should a trainer have to repeat certain programs?

    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time

    Pros

    Online fitness training and wellness services is becoming the norm, so working for an organization that has a vision to offer a variety of online fitness services is wha I would say is the best thing for anyone who is a certified personal trainer.

    Cons

    It's work. Real work. It isn't like you get to analyze a few assessments forms and jot down a basic fitness regimen per client and you're done. You have to use their protocol which is extensive and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    Web offices need improving. Institute some version of direct messaging API. It will make things much faster.

    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time

    Pros

    Nice job. Good pay and hour choices. There is no selling and there are no product sales. The job is exclusively about creating fitness solutions for clients.

    Cons

    No dental. No medical. There is not much growth with the company. Once you have a position you can not laterally move into a different position without having to go through the entire recruitment process again.

    Advice to Management

    A suggestion to management would be to open some NHE gyms. They could have it fully staffed with fitness advisors that would be well trained in nutrition which personal trainers are not.

    I have been working at National Health Educators (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros. This doesn’t even exist.

    Cons

    They scam you into taking an exam... sell you a study guide and make it virtually impossible to pass. This is a huge scam and the company doesn’t even exist.

    Advice to Management

    Go away.

    I have been working at National Health Educators full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    100% of the work can be done from my tablet. I am not required to work out of an office.

    Cons

    No insurance for full time employment is not ideal for men with families. I pay $2300 a year in premiums that the company should be paying for.

    Advice to Management

    Offer insurance, both medical and dental. I understand that is all factored into the compensation but the time searching for quality insurance is not. Particularly for those of us who come from companies that provide insurance to all their employees.

    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    After you get hired you get a very detailed job offer letter which stipulates by bullet point ALL of your job responsibilities. Often with these types of fitness jobs you get told one thing and then you find out that you are required to do other things that perhaps are less 'glamorous'. So for me, the detailed job responsibilities is a big plus.

    Cons

    Not certain if this is a 'con' but there isn't much clarity on longevity. I haven't really had a chance to discuss long term employment with any of the higher ups but from my personal research I could not find NHE employees who had worked for the company for longer than 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is regarding the mtc exam that is used to score everyone's expertise. I would not have everyone take the same exam. Someone like myself, who is a nutritionist, isn't going to fair as well on the exercise science portions of the exam.

    I have been working at National Health Educators part-time

    Pros

    I was initially attracted to NHE because of their international affiliations. I was particularly interested in working with their French division. If you have international fitness instruction aspirations, I recommend this company.

    Cons

    A downside would be no career advancements.

    Advice to Management

    Create pathways to upper management. Seems like the top jobs are locked out for new comers.
