Life Cafe Staff (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 December 2018
I loved working at Lifetime Fitness! It was absolutely the place where you meet new people, discover different cultures and how others interact in their everyday life and forcefield! I learned new things about my body, mind and spirit while working here! Due to family circumstances I had to cease and desist my time at this wonderful place, but I would definitely work again in an atmosphere such as this!!
Pros
Good people, Amazing Benefits, Amazing place

Not for all
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON26 September 2018
If you enjoy fitness and providing a great service to your clients, working here will help you connect to the motivated individuals that will make you enjoy your day! The clientele are so generous and grateful for you to help them reach their goals.

Something that will not be so much for you is the management. Lifetime has a growing turn over rate of personal trainers due to the inconsistency of management. I was not impressed with how they treated their personal trainers and definitely was not impressed with favoritism that was shown.

There was always a sense of insecurity of the job because management never seemed impressed nor supportive. Overall disliked my time there are Lifetime, but enjoyed the members and their stories and personalities.
Pros
free gym membership, scheduling times
Cons
inconsistent policies, sharks

Always keep busy
Facility Operations Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 July 2018
Club is always busy, especially in the evenings, staffing in department could be better, lots of laundry to do, locker room needs constant attention, members aren't always all respectful of the club.

Did 120 hour co-op and enjoyed it for the most part
Co-op/Field (Former Employee) –  Ajax, ON13 June 2018
During my course with Lifetime I really got to learn about the fitness industry. The main thing with this industry as is with any industry in that it is a business first and foremost. You can know everything about exercise science and nutrition but if you cant sell yourself than you will not make it in the industry. The facility itself is very clean and the machinery and gym equipment is for sure top of the line. The Management is great, but you have to keep the sales up or they will get rid of you.
Pros
Free use of the facility and it really is the best facility
Cons
pressure to make sales

Not a good place for long term, get treated badly, and pay is horrible.
Team Member (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON19 May 2018
DO NOT get me started on the pay, the pay is horrible! Put so much effort and time into something and end up getting a pay cheque that a highschool student makes working in McDondalds. They aren't direct with you when it comes to how their going to pay you. They switch back and fourth from commission to hourly. If you don't make enough money they threaten you about losing your job. Everyday is the same pressure, ESPECIALLY with a new manager and new assistant manager who don't know what their doing and pick their favourites and pick on other people by bullying them and bringing them down.


Management is okay. Until this new manager came and literally ruined everything for everyone just to keep herself safe. Wish upper management did a better job on hiring rather than clearing their plate as soon as possible to fill the seat. Past managers of certain departments were much better but I don't blame them for leaving because they would get threatened of losing their job or position every month.


Lifetime is a beautiful place, I still love it. I work out there. Just sad how the staff gets treated and members notice it too.
Pros
Free membership
Cons
very poor management, poor pay

Love this place!!!!!
Team Member (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 May 2018
One of the very few places that I have worked at and can honestly say that I enjoy it. People complain about management but don't realize that this is an American company and they are still fairly new to Canada. It will take time to work out the kinks and for them to understand Canadian laws/cultures. Having been there awhile, there have been many changes and the company is progressing in the right direction.
Pros
Too many to list

No day is the same
Manager (Current Employee) –  ON29 April 2018
Great environment to work in. Surrounded by passionate team members. Some days it does not feel like work at all. Some days can be stressful. Culture at Life Time is very dependent on Management team's ability to lead. Most rewarding part of the job is seeing Members happy and having a great experience.
Pros
Fulfilling, great environment
Cons
Can be stressful, Work/Life Balance is inconsistent.

Ok for a first job
Locker Room Attendant (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON5 February 2018
management could be way better, staff is not well taken care of. To be quite honest its like working with a bunch of high school jocks and children. Promises are made to move up but none of that ever happens.

Coworkers were okay at best and management only cared about the numbers
Spa Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Vaughan, ON12 December 2017
Other than the free gym membership and some coworkers, it was not a good job. You had to act a certain way and were expected to do more work than what your actual role was. You are always watched even if you think you are not. Also there are no warnings. If you do something they dislike once you are done. I did not feel like I learned or grew as a person here at all.
Pros
Free gym membership
Cons
No breaks, bad mamagement

Felicity Operations Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON1 November 2017
Very busy work place. You get to meet a lot of new faces. Helping others with their fitness goals and lifestyles. I have worked in many different departments over the years at life time. Each department has taught me new things and I have enjoy all departments of Life Time.

Competetive Wages
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON13 June 2017
Wage expectation is competitive with comparative retirement homes. The residents are amazing and staff work great together. Sometimes it can be difficult to provide safe consistent care due to under staffing.

Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Ajax, ON29 May 2017
Nothing to complain about at this building! Aside from some unfit management, everybody in the building gets along well. Team chemistry is a big part of success which is why I believe that LifeTime Ajax is doing well in comparisons to its sibling locations.

Decent, average work, great coworkers
Café Team Member (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 April 2017
A decent experience, poor Cafe head at the time, I am unsure about the new one. For a typical day, make food, smoothies and clean. Hardest part of the job is keeping up with rushes, most enjoyable part was having a great group of co workers. Fast pace work environment.

Overrated company to work for
Former PT (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON8 April 2017
As many have written long hours, under pay, no appreciation.

At the end of the day they push you to sell things that members may not necessarily need. It is always about making sales & hitting a number. If you are single with no family, no other commitments than this job is for you.
Pros
Use of the facility
Cons
To many to list.
