I worked at XSport Fitness full-time (Less than a year)
Getting paid to workout and teach fitness to those wanting to change their lives.
Bias and lack of comradery within the employee staff. Many coworkers have been welcoming, respectful and friendly. Others including sales management, trainers, and my boss have been biased and unwelcoming. Also, too much of an emphasis is placed on money, selling things and deadlines. Insensitivity and heartlessness is also an issue. And if the boss doesn't like you from the get go, you better play it safe because he will fire you the first opportunity he gets. If your a hot girl, he may forgive your mistakes and keep you around.
Advice to Management
Stop being so money hungry to the point where you have no soul and stop sticking up for jerks in the gym that provoke trainers. That is why I lost my job.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at XSport Fitness (Niles, IL (US)) in October 2017.
Interview process was very easy and informal. I had to meet/interview with the general manager who browsed my application and asked that I needed to take the certification for PT within 3 months of hire when I had a BS in Kinesiology which sufficed. I also talked with the Fitness manager who just talked about fitness in general and asked questions like "What would you do first when an overweight person is the one you're training?" or "What are your qualifications for this position?" Then lastly, I met with the regional manager who hired me in the spot asked me why I want to join the company and what I see myself in the future in the company.
