    Pros

    Good compensation, no pay cap, free gym membership, family oriented staff. Decent discounts on a lot of certifications. Great place to build up clientele and be creative with your Personal Training style.

    Cons

    Management changes way too much and is overworked. Corporate will try to steal every nickel and dime from you. Seriously need a better way of compensating PT, a very flawed system that points the finger and punishes the trainers. Never any sale incentives for PT to push. You are on your own in terms of getting clients. Members always leave with a bad taste in their mouths with any billing concerns or customer appreciation because corporate ties everyone's hand and hangs them by a noose.

    Pros

    Get to manage your own business. Train clients the way you want. Membership Consultants look out for you and aide in helping you find new clients.

    Cons

    Dependent on management. Constant hustle for keeping clients and finding new ones. Management is very sales oriented.

    Pros

    Had great co-workers who were super positive about everything. Made decent money for membership sales.

    Cons

    Sales environment was pushed down your throat occasionally. Upper management wouldn't be realistic especially on close out days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just treat people more honestly. Remember they need space sometimes.

    Pros

    Depending on fitness manager, can learn new things related to fitness and nutrition.

    Cons

    General Manager is too pushy with sales. When cleaners weren't there, trainers were commanded to clean which they weren't supposed to.

    Pros

    Most people are nice. Coworkers are kind and supportive. Fun and engaging when working with clients.

    Cons

    Corporate takes 60-70% of your money if you are a personal trainer. They can fire anybody on the spot. Very unprofessional and threatening upper management. Benefits is almost nonexistent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to school and learn some managements kills. If that doesn't help then maybe parents just didn't raise the upper management in my branch correctly. The high turnover rate is probably because corporate force trainers to get a pointless ACE cert when somebody has a NASM or ACSM cert. It might be better if trainers were compensated for continuing education hours.
