    Pros

    A good atmosphere to work in, and great people.

    Cons

    Monotonous and repetitive at times. 'Referral' targets are banal and meaningless and although are most likely intended to give your work a sense of progress and to quantify it, it isn't much of an incentive.

    I worked at Pure Gym full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people in the gym, if you enjoy fitness you can meet some great people and change lives (but this is in your own business not working for puregym)

    Cons

    -15 hours unpaid work - When I first started this could be used to build your business but when new management took over it was 3 hours of cleaning and 2 hours of classes.
    -No sick pay or time off (If you cannot do a shift rest assured you will have to make it back)
    -Poor treatment by management who behave like they are above you.
    -Management have favourites who they will pass the leads on to, if they don't take them and train them theirselves.
    -Very high staff turnover.
    -Unhappy workforce.
    -Shifts will be changed without consideration to the trainers personal obligations.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff members with respect,
    Stop taking trainers clients.

    I have been working at Pure Gym full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented people working towards the same goals; to help members improve their health and well-being and give great service. Loads of fun plus development opportunities. No stuffy gym snobs, just normal people who love fitness.

    Cons

    None yet, I enjoy what we do.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to one of the team about opportunities, you won’t regret it.
