    Pros

    Free membership, discounts, growth within the company, relationships created with members

    Cons

    Very stressful, high expectations with low compensation, no work/life balance, false promises, everyone is unmotivated and unhappy, extremely low internal NPT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees well as it would reflect in their performance. Have a mission and vision for the internal of the company and not just what the company provides.

    I worked at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Great environment! Great co-workers, and you get to enjoy the gym as a benefit.

    Cons

    Management at the time left something to be desired, both local and regional. If they don't like you, no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your personal life at the door. Employees should be evaluated according to their success or lack thereof at the company, not dependent on your personal feelings.

    I have been working at Life Time Fitness

    Pros

    Great proximity to my home, flexibility to leave for family issues. Reduced membership after years of paying family rate.

    Cons

    Many members in management including leadership positions have a high school mentaility. Truly corporate environment, people who have worked here for years are in positions of management with no true management experience. Compensation is lower than comparable positions but I guess free membership is supposed to make up for that?

    Pros

    Free fitness Membership, Industry leading pay, corporate training, growing company, energetic team members, good benefits, great training and education always available

    Cons

    work-life balance can be tough, weekend work a must, potential for long periods of down time, retail-esque hours, ever changing pay structure to change the way you grow your personal production to make your target pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A larger focus on retention and quality member acquisition to not burn out your sales staff,
