Self Starter
At LA Fitness you need to be a self-starter. If you do a good job and work hard, you will get many clients. But if you don't train clients, you don't get paid. You are straight commission.

Very chill environment
Working here is lax. It's right in the downtown Silver Spring area. Lots of food places around. If you enjoy fitness and health and wellness, you'll like working here. However, the hours aren't ideal and the management isn't good either. Regardless, of what positions you apply to you'll have to be trained in working the phones. Making calls, answering calls, working with the guests billing information etc.

Laid back partime
Great part time job. Good for entry level. Great for college students. I did not like the management because they didn't care much about the employee. They cared more about clear-ups

Terrible Management, Unfair Pay
I have now worked in 3 different gyms. This is BY FAR the worst gym I have worked for. The personal training director kept telling me "We are gonna get you promoted, we are gonna get your promoted" but failed to tell me that you have to be with the company for a year as personal trainer to get promoted. He then lied to the PT manager and told her that he explained all of this to me in detail (which he did not) and told her he had been calling me nonstop trying to get a hold of me (he called me once).

For months I worked 40+ hours a week for minimum wage thinking I was going to get promoted. On top of that they want their personal trainers to make sales even though it is not in the job description. They want you to do this because they have a high employee turnover rate in their sales department.


When I gave my two weeks he called me and said "you don't have to come back no more". When asked if he was firing me he refused to say yes. So basically what he was doing was trying to get me to leave without paying me. I would never recommend anyone work for this company in the location I was at, or any location for that matter. There are a lot of other places you can be a personal trainer where the management will actually teach you how to better yourself instead of being greedy, money hungry, slimey salesmen/saleswomen. DO NOT WORK HERE

Too political
A day at work would normally start with an employee clocking in and making a minimum of 70 phone calls per day. Marketing 1-2 hours by yourself outside. Bringing in at least 15 people who were not members into the gym so they could tour it. Re-racking weights. Making sure gym was clean for when new members arrived it would look presentable.
Pros
Free membership
Cons
pay wasn’t right

La Fitness
I was a personal trainer for the first several years at LA Fitness. I loved training and enjoyed helping my clients. However, the lack of consistency in receiving new clients to keep a full schedule made it very difficult. The pay was also not enough to provide a comfortable living. As the Assistant Personal Training Director, the work interesting, but I was only in the role for a few months before leaving.
Pros
free membership
Cons
no work life balance

Horrible pay. Horrible management
They pay is laughable and the fitness director won’t care about you they’ll only care themselves and their own pocket. I felt bad for my clients because what they paid for training isn’t worth what they received. All cookie cutter programs.
Pros
Make your own schedule
Cons
Pay. Management.

Very much commisson based even though it pays salary. Demanding, and sales oriented .
This position can be very rewarding with its bonuses, and fun at the same time. Requires a lot of motivation to reach those bonuses. If/ when you do, you will be happy with the pay.

All positions are temporary
Management disclosed that upper management looks to hire people Toronto for a while and replace then often. They don’t value employees. It’s beyter for them to rain new people then to give established employees a well deserved raise
Pros
Flexible
Cons
No career advancement

Worst Job I've Ever Had
If you like people, have more time, or want a free membership, you'll probably fit this job better than me. The hours they gave were bad since I was taking classes and had to rush to work after class which ended up with me being late. I brought this to the manager's attention, but nothing improved.
Pros
free membership
Cons
poor management

Love the place hate the pay
You will love the job, the people who work here, your clients and the area you work in. The worst part is the people that are above the people you work directly for are always asking you to work harder than the standard they had set from the beginning. They do not pay you equal to the amount of work you put in. The guys that are asking you to work harder get paid more when you work harder. The managers are awesome, its the managers managers that are not so nice.
Pros
Awesome clients and great experience
Cons
No pay and terrible bosses
