      Best Trainer Pay at a Commercial Gym

      Pros

      Good clientele, decent facilities, and the best hourly pay in the commercial gym space.

      Cons

      Even with the best pay rates, you're still giving more than half of your hourly pay to the company. This is an industry standard, but it still sucks to be earning more money for the company than for yourself.
