A typical day consists of engaging clients towards the achievement of their fitness goals, providing structured workout programs and lifestyle tips for all fitness levels, and recruiting new members and personal training clients.
The company encourages employees to adapt to different clients needs, become incredibly personable, and to manage time and clients effectively.
GoodLife tends to micro manage their employees which I saw as a down side. While they emphasize personal, respectful and compassionate relationships between employees, employers, and members, I found the job to be in reality much more corporate, impersonal, and completely inflexible.
Generating new leads in an environment where clients and members are consistently called on and approached was one of the biggest obstacles at GoodLife,
However, the satisfaction of seeing someone accomplish something they once thought to be impossible was enjoyable. Educating others about the importance of physical activity, proper nutrition and the benefits of lifestyle changes was what I thought to be the most rewarding aspect of the job.
Incredibly long hours with no compensation nor the opportunity for flexibility.
