    Should have paid more for the work that was out it. The place is very busy for when you want to work out, and they charge a lot for their membership.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    They educated, motivate and empower clients a customize workout plan and healthy eating to foster results.

    Cons

    Too expensive. Need to package membership with personal training. Too young of sales guys need to really get into clients needs. Peoples needs should change and every four months with eating and workout regiment.

    Advice to Management

    Every member should have 100 LT bucks to use towards fitness goals. That would help them get going and retain them.
