Compel has a great model for business. Unfortunately it’s only to “get” signed up that are new to the gym, and don’t know otherwise. Soft “threats” from management are very common. “If you don’t do it, we will find someone who will” and “get this done, we really hope you’re that person” often making you question their intentions. This would be said immediately after your monthly numbers where given. One moderate month, and you’re getting these soft threats.
Statistically, we all know gyms are empty during certain times of the year. You are expected to have the same numbers consistently through the slow season. Obviously you don’t want an excuse, but there should be some sort of compromise.
As far as actually “training”, they will hire any trainer off the street. You can get your PT cert even after your interview. They provide no value to clients at all. It puts a bad taste in clients mouths, and that’s negative for actual educated trainers.
Would recommend to learn a solid business structure. Do not plan on being there too long, it’s not a long term position.
Great support from other directors, Great weekly calls for sales training. It really helps improve objection skills.
No benefits, Expactations during the “slow” season. Co-Owner is selfish, walks with a big stick, but nothing to show for it
