    Pros

    They educated, motivate and empower clients a customize workout plan and healthy eating to foster results.

    Cons

    Too expensive. Need to package membership with personal training. Too young of sales guys need to really get into clients needs. Peoples needs should change and every four months with eating and workout regiment.

    Advice to Management

    Every member should have 100 LT bucks to use towards fitness goals. That would help them get going and retain them.

    Pros

    Very enjoyable, healthy, team atmosphere. The co-workers are all motivated and willing to help out when needed.

    The pay is not great and there is not much room for growth in this department. Not able to provide much input on decisions as it is a corporation and is a long process to make changes.

    Pros

    Mostly fun atmosphere, with a passion for wellness.

    Cons

    The passion for wellness is evident in how we treat out members, but not evident in how the company treats its employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule. Provided with some awesome leadership. Ability to go as far as your attitude and work ethic will take you.

    Cons

    Very little work life balance. Many who come into the company are very health conscious and actively work out. The job becomes so demanding that exercise is the last thing on your mind at the end of the day because you are to exhausted.

    Advice to Management

    When you are at club level, you often hear "Im not asking much, so please can you do this one thing"? Those one things come from everybody above you, corporate, national manager, regional, gm. By end of the day you are doing so much of these one things, you find yourself neglecting your main purpose-lead your team to artistry. The operations team gets very little appreciation or respect from anybody and yet many of them are the hardest working individuals. I enjoy working for lifetime and have much passion for what I do. My biggest challenge is dealing with the continued lack of respect for what my team does every day.
