Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The sales targets for a gym are very unreasobable. They take your sales if previously signed members do not pay the following month. It takes over 40 sales a month to actually earn good money. At least they give you basic and commission. But there are no other benefits (Orange club) And Blue clubs are actually the ones who are treated good and earn better salaries.The set up part and presentations are tough because you have to get your own spots. Carry the equipment and you are expected to generate more than 20 leads a day, update your diary and makes sales even in the midst of recession. Sometimes you sign people and 20% would cancel within 5 days cooling off period and that is very discouraging.

Fun workplace

Great place to work. It is fast paced which helps makes the shifts go by quickly. The most enjoyable part of this job for me is the great group of people that you work with every day and also the work benefits are very good. (discounts at certain stores) But, the minimum wage rate is too low for the amount of hours worked.

At MRM fun was created by yourself as you had certain goals to reach and prizes to be won.

MRM was an exciting working environment I’ve ever been in. Very professional and there was always room to grow and improve yourself. After a certain amount of calls dialed there was prizes to be won, just complementing the work you had done and more work that still had to be done so the benefits would always drive you to do your job perfectly because you always had something to look forward to

Pros

Leave early when weekly or daily target had been reached.

Cons

Long hours

Productive and efficient

Planet Fitness - Lynnwood is a wonderful gym to work at and gain the level of understanding how to work with all types of people. Learning to interact wirh several people, motivate people and work with people from what they need when it comes ro their specific body types and what each person wants to accomplish. Weither it is loosing weight or building muscle, Planet Fitness told me that hard work does pay off in a sense when it comes to realistic goals being met on a consistent basis. Planet Fitness shows discipline, character, perserverance, positive mindset and a tweeked mental mindet rhat improves anybodies overall lifestyle if a person truly commits to one's goals daily.

Pros

When I used to work at Planet Fitness I could gym for free

Cons

Long hours

Hardcore Sales and Productive Teamwork

Daily KPI's must be achieved, teaches you to negotiate and close efficiently and quick. Management is very strict and professional, always pushing their consultants to achieve their best. The hardest part of the job is getting prospects to come to the club as to be able to sell memberships. The most enjoyable part of the job is that you get to be part of peoples conscious decision to become healthy and live a healthier lifestyle. Also getting to know people personally and what goals they want to achieve.

Pros

Free National Gym access

Cons

Extremely Long hours

Sales Associate for Gym Contracts

A typical day would comprise of contacting prospects and cold calling until a client would have an interest in the Gym Contract.Once that was established we would invite them in for a meeting and a trial, then they would sign a specific length contract.

Pros

Started well but the Salary was not that great

Cons

No Advancement
