Different
Depends on the location you’ll have a blast, or you’ll pull your hair to go into work the days you are scheduled. My location was relaxed but it was pulling hair to go into work with the people I worked with

Fast paced competitive
The days are long but if you focus and work hard to hit your quotas, they compensate very well.
Also can move up in the company generally quick as they are quickly expanding all throughout Canada.

Management is the Worst Part
I loved my clients and majority of my coworkers. As for the company itself... not so much. You get clients assigned to you by the department that sells the personal training and if they don't like you or at least the sales manager doesn't then you're way less likely to get clients. This caused many trainers to quit at once at my location. Communication about stuff to trainers i found was limited, your basically expect to train your clients and leave. I also found for what the client pays, you don't make a whole lot and I didn't like that the sessions were only 30 minutes.

Great company
LA Fitness gave me a chance and even though I took that opportunity and applied hard work to then be promoted six months in. Showing hard work and passion I felt alot of attention and recognition for my achievements, personal calls from the Vice President to congratulate me, lunches, prizes and so on and so on. I have ADHD so benefits are extremely important considering my medication can cost up to $400 a month With my benefits I pay 10% of that and that's a privilege I receive with this company. as far as mental and physical health days and support from our piers we have is amazing and so humbling. The cons I have are very short and sweet. I feel staff do need to be held more accountable for their actions and more procedures involved with writing up employees when needed. The pay is amazing but the structure of the bonuses of quotas do change frequently and can be frustrating and slightly unfair but at the end of the day the top priority in sales is profit.

You do the most for the least
Breaking your back for minimum wage pay with no chance of advancement nor a raise. You do the most but get paid the least, that's the corporate world for ya. If you really need the money then do it for a little while till you can find something better.

Good Experience Overall
My job is slow paced. I love my co workers. However, the pay and commission isn’t that good in my opinion. But I guess that’s expected from a part time position.

Good job
The environment was super chill as well as the coworkers. Everyone was always in a good mood. The job itself was super simple check people in, answer the phone pass it on to sales, then any outstanding accounts call and make collects if possible.

It was nice to associate with some such positive people.
You're working on your own which during the night time as a woman is a little scary because there are some creepy people out there but a lot of the times there was always someone who would look out for you. Another thing is you felt very disposable working there that they would fire you at any given moment even if you didn't do anything wrong. it's just the vibe that it got from it. it was nice working there though because it was a relaxing time as well. you can only make phone calls at certain and during those times you cant you make sure the facility looks clean and tidy which is nice.
Pros
Free gym membership
Cons
Feels like long hours but it's not, no benefits, part time, feeling disposible

productive and fun working environment
At LA I was first point of contact for everyone entering the building. Our location had about 4000 members with a daily traffic about 800-1000 people attending daily throughout the day. I was responsible for taking all calls and directing them accordingly. Checked in the kids to the play area each day. LA Fitness is definitely a paced environment.

I go in at 5 am and get home at 10pm. Poor management. Most enjoyable part of the job was to build relationships with clients and watched them succee
Non professional organization that deceived patrons into buying personal training.
Trainers works long days but only gets paid for hours training clients.

Trainers do all the work while management gets all the credit/ monetary benefits.

Just to name a few I haven’t got to the unprofessional behaviour of one specific director at that Brampton West location

Low quality work place and stingy company
All the managers are corrupt, don’t not work here. No regard or care for their employees. They don’t care about nothing but money and revenue you must bring in. Or you’re fired without even a warning
