    I have been working at Pure Gym full-time

    Pros

    Good for experience if you’re new to industry. Money is good once developed.

    Cons

    Constantly have to find your own clients and the rent is pretty high. Not allowed to advertise yourself. And it seems managers are more concerned with classes and cleaning Rota than supporting your business.

    I worked at Pure Gym part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get access to the gym.

    Cons

    Expected to work and take classes without any pay. You are expected to clean equipment take safety checks whilst on shift, for which you do not get paid. The payment is that they don't charge you for access to clients and the ability to train clients in their gym. Which ensures that you make a loss for a long time as it can take time to build up a client base.
