Energetic and fun workplace
Fitness Instructor (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB12 October 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is that it does not feel like one. Providing an hour aerobic class while getting a workout myself and getting paid for it is the best of both worlds, getting paid to do something you love. The benefits are also a bonus!

long days stuck in an office.
Fitness Advisor (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL21 September 2017
Id begin my day in an office with no windows calling people to see if they wanted to come in and set up a gym membership. the management was good, but always changing. everyone there was great. great work family and would like to hang out, outside of work. the hardest part was the customers getting angry for calling them. the most enjoyable was the free memembership.
Pros
free gym membership
Cons
long hours stuck inside an office.

FITNESS TRAINER (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON9 September 2017
Working with GoodLife Fitness was a good place for me to work because of the flexibility in hours, but the best part of the job was the people. The club that I worked at had a better, friendlier atmosphere than any other gym in the area.

Great oppertunities to move up if you are a hard worker
General Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON28 July 2017
Lots of activity. Structure to help build your business. Tools are provided to make your business thrive. It is alot of work and if you tend to be a person who doesn't want to work this is not your job. You must be a people person and understand the value of hard work. The culture is fantastic and we have great monthly motivating sales launches. The hardest part of the job is outreach / street reach, trying to find ways to think outside the box to achieve leads for prospective opportunities.
