    I have been working at Pure Gym full-time

    Pros

    All of the PTs look out for each other. Shift work allows you to meet a variety of different people/members. The gym equipment isn't top of the range but enough to provide a great service to cliental. Unlimited earnings potential (if you want to work for it).

    Management are usually great guys and former PTs (see cons as well).

    Cons

    Managers don't help with advertising PTs. Managers are all about getting members through the door and more or less look out for themselves. They do listen to you when you have concerns or want things changed in your favour but sometimes it feels very forced.

    Advice to Management

    Advertise your shift PTs more.

    Work life balance. People focused

    Keep it about the people
