Compel Fitness
Certified Personal Trainer (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 20, 2014
Pros: no sales required by trainers, make own schedule
Cons: pay scale, if fitness directors don't sell training then trainers dont get new clients
New Company but needs to look out for the employee rather than making a profit. High turnover rate in all positions. Trainers last roughly 5 months, Training directors last about 6-7 months. No room for advancement.

UNLIMITED INCOME! AWESOME ATMOSPHERE! GREAT COMPANY!
Senior Training Director (Current Employee), Mechanicsville, VirginiaJune 4, 2013
Pros: fun environment, great people, you can work out on your break, very flexible and you get to help people everyday!
Cons: no insurance..... yet - i have faith!
I have been in the fitness industry since I was 19 years old and I have made more money at Compel in the last 3 months then I made in 8 mo's at other companies working just as hard and staying just as consistent. It's the real deal, meaning that you work but you also get PAID for your efforts. If you are a go-getter and love fitness and have a competitive – more... spirit you will have a blast at work everyday and make money, no question! Keep in mind that most of the negative reviews are from lazy people who don't want to put in any effort and expect to be paid to stand around and be what they're good at-- LAZY! Also, we get paid bonus at this company and they actually give it to you!!!!!

I do need insurance but the positives out weight the negatives by a long shot! Insurance is coming and Compel is growing rapidly, get in before it's too late!! – less

Long hours but limitless income potential
Area Manager (Current Employee), MarylandFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: limitless earning potential
Cons: 50 hour workweeks (not too bad when you enjoy what you do though)
Great group of people to work with...motivated and very honest. If you're willing to work 50+ hours per week, and buy in to the company culture, the sky is the limit. I've been with the company 5 years and have made significantly more each year than the previous year. Compel also provides as much training and support as any company I've ever worked – more... with. – less

Fun place to work inside Golds Gym
Training Director (Former Employee), Glen Burnie, MDAugust 2, 2012
Pros: could use the gym daily
Cons: no benefits, commision based. required to work long hours for low base.
It was nice working with freindly people. Learned alot about the psychology of sales here. The hardest part was trying to sell packages of training to people with no credit as we don't sell month to month.
