Company reviews
"Impossible to get anywhere"
Former EmployeeHealth Coach
Due to have they do churn, I signed 4 folks in one week, lost 2. My level went from the highest to the lowest in 2 days as a result. So I was penalized for the lost and got nothing for the 4 who hired me. What's the point? I have no reason to get more clients, no reason to do much. I give up. I will say my supervisor is awesome. However, in the first 2 months that was switched 3 times. They hire everyone and I swear they do the churn like that to weed everyone out. You got it folks, see ya!

Former EmployeePersonal Trainer
-Really bad pay -They demote and cut your pay if you lose clients or don't sell plans -The user interface and app experience is really slow and bad. A high schooler can make a better app than that. Super glitchy and slow.

"Things are NOT as sweet as promised."
Former EmployeePersonal Trainer
First of all, you are not going to make 2.500-5.000$ per month (as they claim) with this company. Or, maybe, but it will take you 5 years to get to it. Maybe it was different in the past, but now, since they hire literally everybody, they made it so competitive that they hardly give you leads. Not only me, but a lot of other coaches claimed that, lately, they were only getting 1 lead per month, which ended up being dead anyway. And yes, a lot of leads end up being dead: either not showing up for appointments, saying they actually want an in-person trainer, etc. Let alone the miserable monthly pay. My verdict: if you want to - go for it, but don't have it as your only job to rely on, you will go broke. Keep it aside for OCCASIONAL clients.

"Nice people "
Former EmployeePersonal Trainer
This job is okay if there was a base pay for it. You get leads, but it’s never anything definitive. The people are really nice, although you don’t here from management much.
