Motivator & Fitness Associate (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 14 September 2018
Great staff and fellow teammates. Enjoyable group work. Too much emphasis on the dollar and not enough on loyalty of members. Expected to work fitness into the job, but on own time. Not enough opportunity for commission sales to other than sales team.
Too much focus on bottom line, not enough on client needs
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 31 August 2018
I have been a part of the Goodlife Fitness company for a number of years and it has been a good experience. You meet a variety of people and develop excellent customer service skills. The tough aspect of the job is the long hours and low salary wages.
Fitness Motivator (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 20 August 2018
Work at Goodlife fitness doesn't feel like work. I arrive and leave our fitness club with a smile on my face. Its a social club between the members and staff that always encourages me to do better and help others reach their goals.
Motivator/Front Desk (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 26 July 2018
Management is lacking, no one cares, the front desk staff are treated like janators. Sales people are arogent and walk around like they own the place. Personal trainers have a high turnover as they only get paid of they are training someone and don't get paid for all their hard work to get those customers. Needs improvement in every department!
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 25 July 2018
Great work culture, everyone was friendly and helpful with a similar mindset. Best part about working here were the people I met, including my clients, and the way they have impacted my life. However, we had a change in management and I did not feel supported by my management so I could not continue working under ridiculous expectations with no guidance.
Fitness Advisor (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 17 July 2018
I applied for this job because I had success losing 75lbs with a trainer and felt the environment was where I wanted to be. Once I started as a fitness advisor, they push you to sell sell sell and it became clear they cared very little for any members and everything was about the final numbers. They pushed and pushed and pushed and talked about goals and how you could succeed by forcing people into memberships/trainings even if they couldn't afford them. I had a difficult time working and it became clear it was not an environment I could work in and I quit. I would not recommend it for a parent or someone who has other responsibilities.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 10 July 2018
The culture was great and the staff were amazing. The role of which I played should have had better compensation based on my expectations. However, I was able to impact many people's lives and I am grateful for that.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 10 July 2018
As the front desk clerk, it was nice to be able to interact with members as a part of my duties. I developed my communication towards customers or clients through this experience. Typically, I would answer the phone, schedule massage appointments, greet members, and wash towels.
