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 can honestly say now that it would have been way harder for me to compete in today’s job market without this course and experience. Other schools give you the theory and no practical insights, but Product Gym addresses the breadth of roles with which... Read More PMs interact daily. You learn from from experience data analysts, UX researchers, product marketers, and engineers about how you can help them do their jobs better (because working across teams and eliminating road blocks is a big part of PM role!).
Another amazing component of the course is the support you get from the crew - whether it’s helping you polish your resume and interview skills, or giving you honest feedback while providing encouragement in your transition to product. They are a no-nonsense team and you will get your investment back tenfold if you join this Gym.
The processes and methodologies of product management are often taught in a vacuum, and most programs barely scratch the surface. Product Gym gets it right and sets students up for success once in the job by diving deep and teaching the cross functional... Read More nuance that the job entails. The curriculum is designed as such because above all, the program is designed to help you land the job. The instructors were extremely credible and helped me think like a product manager, starting with how I managed my own job search. The program instilled the confidence I needed to interact with hiring managers across a wide range of industries. I would definitely recommend Product Gym to any aspiring product managers looking to take control of their career. Having done the Product Management class at General Assembly before enrolling in the Product Gym program; I can say with complete confidence that Product Gym is far superior than any other program on the market.
Product Gym was awesome. Loved how they knew so much and how they allowed you to pick their brain. They showed me the versatility of a Product Manager and the vast types of PM roles that you can become. They will even help you out even if you have no... Read More PM experience.

I’d say there’s nothing comparative in the market right now. The painpoint of those seeking to enroll into a bootcamp to transition to a PM role is actually getting the job itself. Most other bootcamps fail at addressing that specific issue, while Product... Read More Gym tackles it head on and makes it its main goal.
Applicable, useful, effective, and concentrated mentoring/coaching.
What if you don’t feel like you can make it in New York as product manager?
It is scary as hell to try and fail but I decided to give it a try because Cody and the team are so good at providing both emotional and practical support. Even the most dedicated... Read More person to become the next best product manager can benefit from this program. Cody and the team makes the job hunting process better because they are experienced supporters (really, they’re the advocates of people who dreams about becoming a product manager), and they know how brutal it is out there. They’ll make you work hard for you own dream! Personally it opened my eyes to see the possibility and work hard. I stopped being anxious about the 'what ifs'. I’d say the money for the program is worth it. The program is designed by the top product managers in the field.
Tip: attend one of the meet up. See it for yourself. You can to walk out with something. Personally I walked out feeling good because I networked with other product managers who are already in the field.
The biggest difference I noticed in working with the team at Product Gym was that they were committed to me crossing the goal line with all that I learned, whereas the competition is satisfied simply with sharing information.
Motivation, and determination... Read More are instilled in the students, and they have a track record that proves their strategies work.
Definitely the missing link if you are trying to change your career path.
My instructors were all true product management veterans, having worked as PM’s at some of the world's top companies. Our Lead Instructor leveraged his vast experience as a PM to give the class examples of what we can expect to encounter and how to approach... Read More challenges. This was very helpful considering that most of the students in the class has very little PM experience. I particularly liked how they had a VAULT of interview questions. Each week you would learn how to master a very particular set of questions based on different categories. It was so refreshing to see students landing and passing interviews during the course. By the end of the course, in addition to the PM concepts you'll know how to generate interviews, prepare for the them, and work with your instructor to progress to the final rounds.
