Personal Trainer Sales in Dublin City Centre, County Dublin
on 21 August 2022
Productive and enjoyable place
Working for Educogym was a good experience for me in general. The clients and the manager are really nice, and the manager is really good at motivating you to keep doing your best. They have their own culture and model that is easy to work with once you understand and drive into. A big part of the job is sales, which was my weakness as a personal trainer, so I was pushed to do it, and I learned a lot. I worked there for almost one year, and the experience was excellent.

OK workplace
I loved working at educogym as a perosnal trainer, but I absolutely hated the sales part, this company makes you go out on the street to find customers to join the gym ( membership is €800 for 3 months ) When you don't train clines you have to make continues phone calls to everyone to Try make them join the gym. Everyone Friday we have a meeting to discuss how to force clients to join the gym. And when you don't find customers every week they would be annoyed.
Senior Trainer in Dublin Docklands
on 30 April 2021
Stepping stone to better things.
My experience with educogym started off very brightly and had a very enjoyable time in the Bahamas doing the seminar. I then started in Dublin Docklands, was transferred to Blackrock for a period of time and had a very enjoyable time there.Back to Docklands as a manager was sacked. This was the beginning of a very good period for me for about 2 years where I was the most succesful trainer across the Irish gyms a number of times over a quarterly period. There was then messing around with the commission structure as I think they saw it was being too easy to hit for the senior trainers so they the powers that be broke it up into stupid KPIs like photos and other things. The problem with this was not everyone wanted their body shown off in public or on a flyer but they didn't get that so you couldn't use a lot of really good photos.The basic was VERY poor. The commission was decent starting but as mentioned made it more difficult to achieve. My basic was poor but was really poor for others starting off. Looking back I can't believe I worked for that!When you're doing well the owner made you feel ten feet tall and really made me believe in myself at the start. At other times you're totally patronised, looked down on if or when the rain comes. No support given. I was told it was my fault a client left even though they changed job and left the area!The staff turnover is ridiculous due to how they are treated. There's very little qualified people working there. The supplements that are sold you couldn't stand over as there is no studies on the products themselves. Some of the products aren't even in the correct medium for absorption. The 12 day study isn't even a proper study, they talk about it like it's publised in a medical journal for crying out loud! It certainly isn't sustainable as a way of life. Absolute nonsense.Certain staff were sly regarding supplement sales putting sales under their name when it wasn't the case. All for pennies too! There was also sales being given to the wrong trainer too for clients.The experience taught me so much about what a working environment shouldn't be like.

Terrible management..Shes so money hungry
awful experience ..manager is a bully and just out for herself..turned me off personal training for life....split shifts so youre in early in the morning and back again in the late afternoon..not paid for breaks..sales driven and the supplements are a complete waste of money
Trainer in Cork

Unethical, dishonest and vindictive
The owners are the most underhanded people it's ever been my misfortune to be involved with. They will use you for all they can get from you then stab you in the back when they have what they want from you. The main owner is obsessed with watching people and has cameras everywhere including hidden ones. They have no interest in the well being of their staff, only trying to get them into the cult of Tony Quinn to promote the "university backed" training program and the useless overpriced supplements.
