Upbeat commercial facility for those with very energetic personalities. Difficult to maintain steady income.
Pros: free membership to a high dollar health and fitness club included with employment.
This is a large commercial Health, Fitness and Wellness facility that caters to all aspects of physical well-being. For the hired Fitness Professional/ Personal Trainer, starting up your business can be a challenge.
The management team and fellow co-workers are typically very kind, courteous and helpful, especially when you are first starting out. The most difficult part of the job is establishing and maintaining clientele due to the extremely expensive rates that Lifetime charges members, both monthly membership and Personal Training rates.
Lifetime does not offer base income for Personal Trainers. Income is solely 100% commission. I was also a bit unhappy with management for not stating this information during the interview process. They were a bit grey and misleading on how they pay their employees.
Overall, I enjoyed working for Lifetime Fitness due to the positive and upbeat atmosphere. My decision to leave Lifetime Fitness was primarily based on the difficult challenge of maintaining a steady income.
