Lots of work for new trainers, but very rewarding if the effort was applied.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Calgary 17th Ave.20 May 2017
Although I was working two jobs when i was working at Good life I still took this job on and was happy with it. Every day there would be meetings where knowledge was sent around. Management was strict and disciplined which was a good thing.

The hardest part of the job was researching for some clients, as every client is different and some can be challenging.

Management bad
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  London, ON9 May 2017
The managers weren't understanding or cared to help their employees. The breaks weren't provided no matter how long your shift was. Would not recommend working there.

Huge Employee Turnover
Coach (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON4 May 2017
There are so many employees that go in and out of the Goodlife System. In addition, most of the employees that don't make minimum wage think that they're big. Not the best company to work for.

Great Coworkers, not nearly enough pay
Club Administrator (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB3 May 2017
Overall GoodLife was wonderful, was hoping to make a career out of my position before it was discontinued in the company. Pretty much minimum wage unless you were in a commission based role.

Empty promises made
Events and Promotions ((Marketing) (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 May 2017
GoodLife IS a great company and I would love to work with them more again, but it is a very young, and "clicky" company that makes a lot of empty promises. If you're not in with the right people right away your chances of moving up within the company are slim.
Management likes to pick favourites and focus attention on select individuals rather than their whole team.

Not the greatest of work experiences
Personal Training Specialist (PTS) (Former Employee) –  Bradford, ON28 April 2017
Micromanagement was way overboard. Pay was horrible and pay was also taken away. Long hours for no real pay out at all. Bad experience. Did put up with it for 3 months to see if things turned around but did not.

Fast paced environment focused on members!
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON26 April 2017
Fast paced environment with many competing demands. The biggest focus is on members, from acquiring members to keep them consistently coming into the club and providing options to leaving members as well.

Typical day (depending on the role) is meetings, interacting with members, providing tours, generating leads, calling prospective and current members, assisting members with questions regarding accounts and equipment, goal setting.

Most enjoyable part is being able to work with a team to impact the lives of canadians everyday. It is an extremely rewarding company to work for whenever you make a members day.
Pros
free membership, great team, build relationships
Cons
work/life balance

You are expendable
Fitness Advisor (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON26 April 2017
Unless you are management you are never secure in your position. They protect each other and if they don't like you personally your job is in jeopardy.

Zero work life balance
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Ontario24 April 2017
Not a bad company to work for if you absolutely love Health and Fitness. They treat you well but require a lot of unpaid OT. Even at a manager level you are looked down on for working your scheduled hours only , and not OT. If you do not like sales or pressure do not apply as you will not last.
Pros
Great skill building, Great employees
Cons
Work life Balance is non existent

Great environment, poor management
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON17 April 2017
Working for Goodlife was a good foot in the door for the fitness industry. I was provided with the necessary guidance in order to be successful. However, that will not always be the case in every location. I was very fortunate to have gotten in with the management staff at the time of my hiring, however things were not the same as soon as management staff changed. Hours and pay will be dependent on how many clients you take. So work/life balance and pay is dependent on you. You are also expected to find your own clients, so be prepared by doing some sales training ahead of time.
Pros
Great environment, free gym
Cons
management can be unprofessional
