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.

A few months ago, I wanted to transition into tech, and/or fintech, but I wasn't really sure how to. A few friends referred me to chat with Rich, the Co-Founder of PG, who instantly identified all the painpoints I felt in my current role. I was working... Read More a tireless job in sales, and I didn't know how to pivot. Richard the Co-Founder alleviated all my fears by letting me know, he had already helped thousands of students seamlessly transition from various backgrounds. He also let me know that a lot of my sales skill sets were transferrable and even necessary for the Product role. A few weeks into the program, I was really amazed at how effective the PG-guided resume was. I was literally getting 10-20 interviews a week.. at my peak, I had 11 interviews in 1 day...!! I was really amazed at such results!! Although it was difficult, I felt like I was on to something... I simply trusted the process. As time went by, I really felt like I started to get a hang of what the heck these interviewers wanted to hear from me.. Incrementally, I came to see the importance of working with coaches, and colleagues to get the criticism to make iterative improvements. It wasn't easy hearing someone tell me how to improve this or that, but IT WORKS. After mastering the resume, then the R1, R2/R3 interviews, I started to really struggle with the Case Study component... I was losing a lot of hope.. as I felt like yet again, I had no idea what to do... but I kept pushing.. I kept watching the class videos (don't feel embarrassed to watch the videos over and over again!) and attended the coaching calls. I truly believe, you just have to keep practicing, iterating. Finally, after my 5th case study (yes with 5 different companies..!), I felt like I started to get a hang of this... and I nailed the 6th case study with the help of the coaches. Today I accepted an offer to move forward with a Fintech company as a Product Manager for the first time in my life. As a salesgirl with zero background in tech!!!! I am SOOOO happy to be walking away from my old life, and I am totally looking forward to an amazing new career in Fintech!!! It's so funny looking back bc it's exactly what I wanted... although I had NO idea HOW I was gonna get there, I just had some gut feeling that this will work. I'm glad I trusted Rich and followed his program. I've got to say, without PG, none of my dreams would have been possible... I'm SOOO grateful I discovered this program, and I wish everyone else on the platform to continue pushing forward despite any frustrations they feel. I would highly recommend the program to any friend, family member, or anyone struggling with a career they feel dissatisfied in.
The program is very helpful and it works. Every step works as intended and the support from the community is really great. If you are looking to land a PM job I highly recommend Product Gym. As they mention on their website, you do have to put in the... Read More work, but it gets easier as you gain momentum. Pros: Well Structured, Resourceful, Great Community & Support, Empowering, Result-Oriented Cons: There is room for improvement and greater efficiency, but no major complaints.
