Product Gym is a 6 week - Product Management Course designed to transition working professional into a product management career. The goal of Product Gym is to equip students with the necessary tools to make informed decisions about the day to day working schedule as a PM. At the end of this course, students will be able to confidently build a product roadmap and define the MVP, identify the key languages needed to build this software, and articulate a specific use case in their background that is relevant to product management.
Simply put, Product Management is fundamentally a mix of soft skills and technical skills where you will eventually sit at the intersection of all the stakeholder departments at your company. To be successful, you need a firm understanding of who those stakeholders are, what their role is, how product managers currently interact with them, and the level of domain knowledge you need to know about their role.
The best way to achieve this level of understanding is to hear directly from those stakeholders. Product Gym not only sources the best product managers as instructors, but also subject matter experts that will be your peer and counterparts in the companies you eventually work at.
The program has some really great courses. However, when I signed up for it, it was communicated that I would get a mentor/ have support during the process. And that's not really the case. I wouldn't recommend the course for the price that you're paying.... Read More The coaching calls aren't really helpful. You can only really ask one question per coaching call.
I only wish I had discovered Product Gym years ago If you are like me and tried everything else (side projects, certifications, leader sponsorship) to start your product career to no avail then stop and sign up for Product Gym.

The training, resources, and coaching of product gym, as challenging as they can be, make all the difference. They helped me walk, talk, and act as a product manager. I have never had so many interviews in my life. I only wish I had discovered Product Gym years ago.
Product Gym has some of if not the best information available to help you land multiple product management offers. The program breaks down the interviewing and hiring process into a formulaic science that is destined to succeed when consistent effort... Read More and persistence is applied. From my experience the information I learned and applied from the Product Gym program, I was able to receive numerous offers within a few months of registering.
Product Gym process just works. This is the only program out there that will help you from scratch. When I say from scratch it means it starts with the mindset and not resume. After joining Product gym, I realized how important mindset could be for getting... Read More a product job. Going in the right mindset sets the stage on how to even think around bullet points you would put on your resume. Product gym helped me all along in the process – resume, applying at scale, recruiter phone screening, hiring manager round, stakeholder interview round and the case studies.

I began my Product Gym experience when I was sure I wanted to transition to a product manager, but wasn’t sure how to get attention from my ideal companies and industries. Since joining PG and the community, and following it’s path - I’ve received multiple... Read More offers thanks to the course content, resume reviews, and approach. I’ve gained a sense of confidence and assurance in my ability to interview and be seen as a capable product manager as well. In addition, I’ll still have access to the resources after I land my next role - which I know will be very helpful in the future. Pros - Resume reviews. Interview approach. Course content on different aspects of product management. Cons - Some courses and the content could be more organized. It’s expensive (but a good investment given it’s a long-term membership).
"Best Investment for Experienced PMs Ready to Double Their Income at Top Companies"
I began my Product Gym experience at a time when I was struggling to convert interviews into offers as an experienced product manager. I first found Product Gym’s free resources online via their blog and Youtube and was blown away at what I was learning.... Read More Since joining Product Gym, I have developed a sense of confidence and expertise to confidently secure offers at top firms as well as built a community of other like-minded professionals. There simply is no other program like Product Gym with strong resources and coaching for aspiring and experienced product managers. I highly recommend this program for any professional who wants to excel as a top-paid, top performing product manager. Although my biggest challenge with Product Gym was the investment (both financial and of my time spent completing the courses and framework), I would say the reward outweighed the challenge: since joining, I received an offer that has DOUBLED my top compensation from my previous role as a PM at a top financial services firm.
What ProductGym does, is enable you to get a job as a PM. Becoming a good Pm is not what they do. They don’t sell diplomas and classes. What they give you, is a sure path to a PM job even with no experience, and if you’re experienced, a path to a better... Read More job. They enable you to go get the job. Period. I’m an experienced PM who held leadership positions, but never did more than a handful of interviews in the course of my career to get there. Needless to say, for a role in a larger company, I needed some support. How they helped me: Got my CV in shape Taught me to apply to 30 companies. For a fee, they even apply for you. Talk about time optimization. Got me 10-20 interviews per week, over the course of 1 to 2 months. Helped me easily breeze through round 1. Helped me figure out how to handle R2 and subsequent ones. Helped me navigate offer stage, and negotiate through it. Their fee isn’t cheap. That said, it paid for itself many times over for me, as I got a job faster, with more seniority, at a higher comp, and they helped me negotiate better comp as well.
Product Gym was easily worth the investment. It was what finally helped me to break into product management after many months of trying alone unsuccessfully. Breaking into PM is hard, and if you think you can go at it alone, you’re welcome to try (personally,... Read More I got 0 interviews when going at it alone). When that doesn’t work out, there’s always going to be the community at Product Gym. They’re going to teach you all things product management, help you with branding, every step of the interview process, as well as what to do after you receive an offer. It got me into the best position to compete for PM jobs, and I’m fortunate to say that it worked out.
PG was there to mentor, guide and hold my hand in the long and arduous journey of becoming a product person. Resume review, personal branding, well-structured courses, case studies, daily coaching sessions are great building blocks that provided the Launchpad... Read More for me to gain traction in the multiple rounds of interviews I had. The PG community is the biggest motivator and driver that never lets you give up in the entire process.
This is one of the things / products that sounds too good to be true. But I decided reach out to understand more about how it works and what they offer. In my whole career I maybe got 10-15 requests for interviews? Since I built my resume with product... Read More gym I got over 300 requests in 60 days, it got so overwhelming (A good problem) Their community culture they built is super useful to brings all people that shares the same interest together and discuss their passion and goals. The courses they provide are super simple to understand and it’s very useful not only to succeed in an interview and land an offer but to have the mind set of a PM and execute the job accordingly. Product Gym is one of the best decisions I made in my life. I have landed multiple offers now and this is not the end, it’s just the beginning. I love the fact that I am part of this gym for life.
