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.
I cant thank ProductGym enough for helping me get into the dream role in my career. I have one offer secured and expecting 3-4 in few days. I really wish I had found this early in my career. The staffs are very helpful, and the community is awesome. But,... Read More one thing - Join only if you can put efforts. You cannot just join and think that you will land up with offers. As the name suggests, it is a "GYM" and not a "SPA". You reap what you sow. Show your hard work and PG will take care of the rest.
My journey with Product Gym has been one of the most rewarding and insightful experiences in my career so far. This has been THE most pivotal resource in helping me understand and implement the skills/techniques that it takes to land a career in Product... Read More Management - I would honestly be lost without this program. The staff and community have supported me through the highs and lows of transitioning my career in media/entertainment over to tech. Throughout my journey at PG it was stressed over and over again how important it is to trust in the process, and that really could not be more true. Though I initially had doubts and lacked confidence - in the end the skills/abilities I gained are only second to the astonishing amount of confidence I now have in myself as a result of trusting in the process. I cannot thank this gym (yes, gym) enough for pushing me in my career journey and helping me get this far. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is willing to grow, push, and empower themselves in order to get results in their career. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Product Gym has truly changed the trajectory of my life. The support, guidance and motivation from the PG staff and community has been tremendous and proves that the learning materials and course ideologies are truly the foundation for member success.... Read More I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn from Rich and Cody and couldn’t have gotten this far without them!
"Best place if you are looking to transition to Product Management"
Can't believe i am giving review right now as it wasn't long ago it was a dream for me to become a PM. I have made it now. The journey was full of lessons and on each critical moment PG coaches and peers were there with me to support. I was all over the... Read More place and applying without any structure earlier. After joining PG, I became more focused and structured in applying. PG provided amazing guidance in preparing for each round of interview and because of that i am here now with a PM offer. Thanks PG family for all support and guidance.
"Entirely shifted my mindset on finding a PM job!"
Product Gym offers one thing that other places miss - a focus on mindset. Prior to joining Product Gym, I had been apologizing for my “lack of direct product experience” and hoping hiring managers would “take a risk on me”. After joining Product Gym,... Read More I began to understand that no one needed to take a risk on me because I already had the skills and tools I needed to a great product manager - I just needed to recognize that before others could. This shift entirely changed the way I approached my resume, my interviews, and my overall attitude to the job search process. Along with the great coursework, awesome community, and super helpful staff, Product Gym made me feel fully equipped to land my first official Product Manager role at an awesome company, making more money than I ever thought I would!
Product Gym is a fantastic service to help you land a product manager job. I was hesitant at first. The price tag was hefty and I was unsure if it was worth the said tag. But it is. That’s for a couple reasons. One there are a series of classes and resources... Read More you can tap on demand that help explain the interviewing process, what to expect, and how to prepare for each phase. There are also video recorded classes on PM topics like roadmapping or A/B testing. Second, PG does a wonderful job helping you feel confident when tackling arguably the hardest interview section - the case study. They offer expert advice on how to handle this portion so you feel prepared no matter the question hurdled your way. I got hung up on this step prior to joining PG. After joining, I was passing this interview step with a high success rate. Finally, PG is great at making sure you work for your dream job. At times, PG demands a lot out of your week between classes, practicing for the interview, and applying. Keep at it because the results will show. I want to leave on one final note. Before joining PG, I had been applying for months with no success. I was offered a job within 6 weeks following PG’s approach. The results speak for themselves.
Before joining Product Gym, I was lost. My experience was all over the place, I was applying for different kinds of positions to see what is out there and never really got past recruiter rounds. I read about Product Managers and really like what I saw,... Read More so I decided to give PG a try after reading all these great reviews, and I can only say – WHY DIDN’T I JOIN EARLIER! The whole process is not easy. You will need to put in the work and hours. You will want to learn, especially if you have never been a product manager before. You will need to get used to rejections. I’ll have to say this though, I used to beat myself up with every rejection, but with PG’s process, I didn't really have the time to sulk! I definitely learned a lot about product management as I went through the program and really appreciate the support that is there, not only from the PG team, but also the other folks that are in the program as well. If you are contemplating whether to join, just do it!
Excellent place for new and experienced PMs to find community and support as they up-level as PMs. Especially valuable for those in roles where, due to organizational structure or similar, advancement and development are in the hands of the PM as opposed... Read More to something that leadership or the organization can structurally provide. Truly Product GYM, where you will be coached and supported to stretch and become your very best.
I joined Product Gym after getting disappointed and wasting my money on Product School. The approach that Rich and Cody take to help people to get their first product management job is practical & effective. The entire curriculum is based on the learning... Read More and implemented immediately model which is different from other providers where you have to go through the whole curriculum first and then career-related services come into the picture. According to me the best part of Product Gym is lifelong access to materials and community. I always recommend product gym to people looking to start their career in Product Management.
"Product Gym - A worthy investment if you want to be a PM"
PG is simply at another level of its understanding about the hiring process. They know the exact process to get you hired and perform well as a PM. The process is tough and demands a lot of hard work and dedication. However, if you put the hard work as... Read More expected in the 'GYM' as it is referred to, you will get the results. The program is structured really well to pay attention to every minute detail that goes into the job search. The course structure is good enough for you to learn the concepts and enable the candidate to not just land and offer but to do well in the role. Only con: Sometimes you feel lost in first 2-3 weeks about the next steps. A little more interaction would help in that phase. Although after that you are on cruise control :) Keep up the good work PG team!
