GoodLife Fitness / uncertified professionals
GoodLife Fitness falsely advertise their Personal Trainers are certified. Fitness Managers are encouraged to hire uncertified people as trainers that are passionate about fitness so they can put them through their own three day cert process at a cost of $500. Even if someone comes with a 3 year kin degree or already certified they must go through the process (albeit at a reduced rate of $200). This is because David Patchell-Evans is also the owner of Can Fit Pro the governing body for fitness professionals in Canada and getting people certified is a revenue stream he does not want to loose. Each club is given a PT hiring quota every month with the idea of hiring 3 to keep 1 and to get their $500 asap before they decide if they truly like what they are doing. As well, new hires are expected to work 20 - 30 hours a week UNPAID and UNTRAINED and are even given write ups if they do not comply. Often someone is hired, pays $500 and is written up and out the door before the end of their 3 month probationary period without recouping their initial investment.
