Since the YMCA is a non profit organization, trainers don’t receive commission like any other big box gym. The culture and management is awesome here though and everyone is always willing to help and give you opportunities to advance your career, education, or connections. The only down part for you working here is the salary. You can make a lot more money at a different gym but the commodity or friendships you make here at the Y are so rare compared to these other places. I really do love it here just wish I wA paid a little bit more.
