Training at Golds?

by Dean
(Austin Tx)

I spent some unproductive months at 24 and left because of too many trainers to compete with as well as a lot of selling pressure. My question is.... is Golds any better? Do they pressure you to sell or do they give you enough clients to keep you busy. After months of trying to train on my own I'm thinking of swallowing my pride and going back to a large gym. Any advice?

Gold's is also a corporation just like 24 hour Fitness!
by: Maggie

I worked for Gold's Gym in Boise, Idaho for about 3 months. They had a lot of great ideas about how to train clients and it sounded really promising up-front. When it comes down to it, it is still a corporation. You pay for your uniforms, you pay for mandatory training, and you are required to sell a certain amount a month in personal training. However, they do put you on a team and they all help you to build your own business, but you are still having to answer to a boss if you don't make your quota. Plus, the rates for training are always fluctuating, which is something clients don't like.
In my opinion, Gold's Gym was a great learning opportunity of "what not to do." Plus, I think I paid money to work there. They said I made $17 per session and 10% commission on sales, but considering a 10 session pack was $500 to $700, averaging about $60 a session, I really didn't make as much as I should have.
That is just my opinion about working for Gold's Gym, and that is why I am starting my own training business.
