This analysis will also provide you with how Element PT could improve upon all of them and present you with realistic revenue projections you could expect by partnering with us.
Creating and maintaining a positive Company Culture is and will always be our top priority. Making that happen starts with our leader at the top.
Adam started his fitness career with one of the most successful gym companies ever and followed that with multiple years at a couple companies that were at the forefront of the outsourcing pt business model. It took him years to realize that their financial success always seemed to come at the expense of their employees, members, and gym partners.
As those kind of companies typically do, they manipulated Adam into becoming a not so nice boss to work with, or as he is often admits to, "I became an a**hole of a boss."
His promotions and rewards were based off of incentives that encouraged him to think selfishly, but worst of all, was the poor example that his managers showed him. They lacked empathy towards their employees and looked at them as expendable and replaceable. That attitude was passed along from the top down and it didn't stop with the employees, but always ended up affecting the clients and gym partners just the same. It seemed no matter where he went to work in the gym industry, the culture remained the same. The silver lining of dealing with those poor cultures is it gave him a clear vision of how he wanted to lead his own company someday.
Our PT Sales Directors
We are very careful about who we place in the leadership role inside every club. Our PT Sales Directors are required to have extensive knowledge of exercise science, an ability to foster trusting relationships with members, their training staff, and club management, and a talent for motivating a member to purchase personal training.
We are able to recruit the best and most motivated individuals because we offer them an environment in which they can develop into better leaders.
This provides club owners with a confidence and much welcomed long-term stability within their clubs.
Our Personal Trainers
Our clients invest a few things of great value in a quest to reach their fitness goals. They invest their hard earned money, their emotions, and their precious time.
With this in mind, we take the recruitment of quality personal trainers seriously. Each trainer is required to have a nationally recognized pt certification, an energetic and positive attitude, passion to improve lives, and a responsible work ethic.
With our compensation and benefits plan, our trainers can be confident they will have the ability to establish a lengthy career that is able to support themselves and a family.
Without our employees we are unable to deliver the services and change lives. We reward loyal employees with an attractive benefits package. Available to qualified employees are:
1) Up to one week paid vacation per year.
2) All Continued Education Credits paid for each year.
3) Health, Dental, and Eye insurance .
