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.
ProductGym is a fantastic and tactical career accelerator that focuses on a clear gap that Product Managers have - The interview process. From day 1, you are unlearning a lot of what you learned about the recruiting cycle. Product Gym provides a lot of... Read More information around the types of decision makers and the businesses that could be involved in a recruiting process - all of which puts recruiting at companies into perspective. In addition to what you unlearn, you also get to learn core foundational skills to help your "mini career" in interviewing, which if done right, becomes a life long skill. Overall, I benefited greatly from the program. Yes it takes time. Yes it takes a lot of energy. If you aren't receptive to feedback, yes you will be getting a waterfall amount every week. And that's the best part. Enduring and improving yourself in the process makes you a better product manager.
Before starting with Product Gym I was getting rejected for PM internships and now have landed an offer and made it to final round interviews for senior level positions. My background was initially in product design and before working with Product Gym... Read More I was really struggling to pitch myself as a product manager and effectively show that I have the skills for a product management position. The highest value for me has been the branding update and learning how to pitch myself to tell effective stories in the interview process. Some of the skill-based courses were also really helpful to brush up on certain aspects of a PM job that I didn't have as much experience in. Overall I highly recommend Product Gym and I don't think I could've made the progress that I have without them.

Product Gym gave me what I was lacking in my approach to branding my resume and presenting myself as an already seasoned PM. If you are still in doubts about joining PG, please go ahead and make that life changing decision to start the process as it WORKS. I went from not getting a single recruiter call for 3 months of doing it on my own to averaging 4-6 interviews every week. You have to put in a lot of work to see results and I tell you it is a lot of work, but you will be glad you did. Thank you PG for setting up this program especially for aspiring PMs like myself who was able to get my PM role through this program.

The Product Gym experience was fantastic. I have done several bootcamps and curriculums over the last couple years, but all were focused on education and taking the tried-and-true way to get into product management.

With a relentless focus on application consistency and making members really work for offers, you begin to see results very quickly. The community is also a huge part of the experience.

I would highly recommend Product Gym to anyone who is serious about becoming a Product Manager for the first time, or anyone who just wants to improve their interviewing skills and level up in their career.
Joining Product Gym was with out a doubt the best career decision I have made since I graduated college. My professional life has been a winding journey with many detours, but I’ve wanted to be in product for a long time. I finally decided to take the... Read More plunge from marketing and research and really try to land a job in product. initially joined for the courses and to build out my product management skillset. While the classes are top-notch and the coaches and community are incredibly supportive, I’ve found the real value to be in the practical arena of landing a job and launching a career. The reality is that you can learn much of what you need to know about product management roles on the job (though it doesn’t hurt to have some coaching and help!); it’s far more challenging to learn what you need to know to get that job in the first place. Product Gym teaches you what you need to know to get a job in product, and helps you land that first job. In fact, many of PG’s principles would be useful in any job hunting process regardless of industry or function. I’m confident that I the polished interviewing skills that I’ve developed with PG will be with me for life - and that is pretty invaluable. Super grateful and appreciative for PG and the whole community!
I was searching for a Product Management program that can help me with my weakest spot – the whole recruitment and interview process. Product Gym fits the bill in that whether you are transitioning into a PM role or looking towards your next PM level... Read More role, they have crafted a program to prepare candidates for rigorous interviews (all rounds) and prepares you well for every type of interview question possible. The weekly PM classes from PMs/designers/engineers/founders in the industry give you the real-life, practical methods that will get you onboarded to being well-versed with various aspects of product development. The best part is the supportive member community where members help each other succeed. I don’t think I would’ve been able to receive multiple offers – heck, even one offer – before I joined Product Gym. I am forever grateful for the amazing product that Product Gym created!

"Aou G. - Los Angeles, CA - Apparel Product Manager"
Product Gym has absolutely been such a great resource to me. I've gone through a lot of different courses and programs but only this one produced real results and helped me land a job in product. Prior to joining, I was a product manager for apparel products... Read More and I was having a hard time landing interviews and when I do, I could not proceed to the next rounds. Product Gym significantly helped me in my approach! Going through the program is a rigorous process that involves a lot of drive and dedication, but with a very supportive community, coupled with high-caliber coaches and workshops, I was able to pull through it all and learn so much about not just how to get into product management but also with myself as well and with what I can accomplish. The program is just so worth it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get into product management!
