Intense sales environment, long hours, low pay but great facilities.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – March 20, 2017
It's a high pace, intense sales environment. Regional management lacked effectiveness. It was a competitive workplace. They have very effective training and development. I learned the most about sales here. The incentives were often set just out of reach. The most enjoyable part of the day was working with and helping so many people.
Great facilities, effective training and education
Babysitter/Child Care (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 20, 2017
I believe working at LA fitness was my favorite job. I worked with the children and watched them meanwhile their parents or whoever they came with were working out in the gym facility area. The kids were always the highlight of my day with the smiles they always had.
LA fitness is very flexible with scheduling and great because it doesn't require any sales goals. Simply service your sessions and you go home. I did not like the one dimensional way of getting paid, the corporate management, and the amount of clients required to service to make a living. But my good clients allowed me to stay there for sometime.
Working with clients, no sales pressure, flexible schedule
Volume of sessions to make a living, corporate management, and lack of educated trainers
Fun workplace that always uses the newest technology
Business Intelligence Analyst / Developer (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – March 19, 2017
Great Company to work for. Pay is on par with the industry. Not much room for career advancement. No 401k offered. Company is run like a family business. They don't do reviews and it is like pulling teeth to try an get a raise.
Flexible work schedule, can work from home. Work with great people.
Operations (Former Employee) – Richfield, MN – March 19, 2017
Working at La Fitness as an operations employee involves a lot of work being done on the phone. You have can make an unlimited amount of commission and you have an unlimited number of leads to follow. You just have to have to work ethic to make lots of calls.
VERY professional place to work, the staff isn't all that friendly towards each other just get in and get out
Front desk / Kids club attendant (Current Employee) – Studio City, CA – March 17, 2017
As far as scheduling,they don't give enough hours to just have this one job to pay all your bills and the environment is not pleasant enough to stay for extended periods of time but you get a free membership
Operations Manager/Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – March 17, 2017
The club provided the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of people which was both fun and challenging. Teamwork was a huge part of the culture and everyone worked together to provide outstanding customer service.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Garden Grove, CA – March 17, 2017
The job was ok, dealing with high traffic of people, on top of being on the phone constantly dealing with debt and clear ups. Checking people in and dealing with customer service and dealing with the sales team
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CA – March 16, 2017
I really enjoyed working for this company, this job is perfect for students. I also loved that you get a membership while working for them. This position also pays commissions depending on your numbers, so you get hourly pay plus commission.
Great job to have in the fitness industry, but very long hours as a manager.
Weekend General Manager (Former Employee) – Upland, CA – March 15, 2017
Typical day at work for LA Fitness was talking to mass amounts of people, having a go-getting personality but also having fun while you do it. I learned ways to overcome objectives, better selling techniques, and good customer service. Management is great and very motivating. People I worked with and customers were always great to be around. Hardest part of the job as a manager was spending 70 hours a week selling and training staff. Most enjoyable part was the people I worked around and the money made.
Always seeing something different when working and great people to be around.
