      Not a good job

      Aug 9, 2022 - Personal Training Director 
      Recommend

      Pros

      Can't think of a worse possible job. The schedule is pretty good. 9-1, 4-8, nice if you want to get in shape cause you have a 2-3 hour break in the middle of the day. Aside from that the job is pointless. The sales training is good and I learned a good amount in a small period of time.

      Cons

      You're not the actual director of anything just a person who sells personal training. Bait and switch tactics used on Indeed to make potential hires think they are being hired as a manager. The tech this company uses is the worst I have ever seen. The computers are intranet only, and the intranet is most likely from a time before 2010. The pay is garbage You literally sell 25 minute sessions of personal training for $65 a session for the member to work with a sub-par personal trainer. The product is so poor I didn't feel comfortable selling it. Almost every member who signs up for personal training wants to cancel after a short period of time. So there are an UNLIMITED amount of fights you have to constantly deal with. LA fitness makes it almost impossible to cancel. Keep in mind, you're doing all of this just to be compensated poorly. You sell $5k worth of personal training? You make 5% of that. The company is the definition of unethical. They do not look out for the best interests of the members at all. Or else they wouldn't be selling 25 minute personal training sessions with a poor personal trainer getting paid $7 an hour just for the customer to pay LA fitness $120 an hour.
