Product Gym is a New York and San Francisco based exclusive Product Management career membership program that specializes in training and career coaching in PM. We work with individuals with transferable skills looking to break into their first Product role or PM veterans looking for their next role.
We work directly with a number of external recruiters and agencies. If you are interested in interviewing our members or sending some of your candidates to our program, please contact us via the contact form.
Product Gym was founded by recruiting and product management experts with 10+ years of experience. We have been running cohort classes, officially since April 2018. Prior to April 2018, Product Gym was a private, 1-on-1 career coaching service for roughly 1 year.
As a company that prides itself on getting results and finding ideal candidates, Product Gym uses the initial consultation as an opportunity to align with possible candidates’ goals and also answer some questions surrounding the PM search that we’ve encountered. While we certainly will be assessing for possible fit, we want to make sure that we can also answer preliminary questions surrounding our data on PM while making sure possible members are screened.
No. This program is NOT a course. We are NOT a school – Product Gym is a Product Management Professionals’ Association. We are a community which offers skills based classes. These classes are taught by product management instructors who share a similar career transition path with you. They are also supplemented by subject matter experts who will be your peers in the companies that you are looking to make a transition into. The curriculum is designed to teach you hands-on product management skills to equip you with the best job hunting strategies. No other course focuses on the interview and job hunt as much as we do.
Our unique approach to hiring for product management positions is designed to to do three things:
1) Prepare newcomers or veterans with real-time, relevant knowledge in product management.
2) Ramp up on interviews in several weeks’ time.
3) Work with you to navigate the product management hiring landscape to garner multiple offers.
You will learn how to brand yourself as a PM, optimize your resume, LinkedIn and cover letter for recruiters, prepare and answer first, second, onsite, and final round interview questions, and how to work with external recruiters. Additionally, you will learn product management fundamentals, including prioritizing competing product features, evaluating business success across teams and product metrics and marketing.
Professionals with at least 2+ years of relevant working experience who are looking to make a career transition are welcome to apply. The first step is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our Program Coordinators. If you’re a fit for our community, we may schedule a second consultation with one of the Co-Founders to finalize the process and answer your questions.
Glassdoor.com’s average salary of a product manager at $111,213/yr. This amount will vary depending on location.
Our call consultation is free and we will be reviewing your resume and professional background to ensure that you are the right fit for our community. While we have had success placing many candidates, we must ensure every member admitted is serious about our program.
Product Gym prides itself in specializing in ramping up on interviews for experienced PMs, as well as in-network first time/veteran PMs. Ask anybody on our Success Page and they will tell you exactly how precise and direct we were throughout their PM transition and provide honest feedback. In case that’s not enough, here are three reasons:
Upon completing all of our core classes, we can provide a certification to you upon request. We will provide a skills based test, and also an exit round (or two) to make sure that you’re competent in talking about product management – for both interviews and when you’re on the job.
Product Gym promises this: if members who complete our collaborative, branding program in 30 days doesn’t get interviews after following our process meticulously (subject to analysis), we will provide a full refund.
Product Gym is a professional association for product management professionals – we are a community. Part of our community offering is a set of classes and cohort. For each class set/cohort, Product Gym offers 36-40 hours of real time class instruction in the form of live classes and webinars. We may subject this to change in the future, but our events are currently held (in-person) in NYC and San Francisco.
We provide multiple opportunities a week to speak with our coaches when you’re in the beginning stages of the interview process. When you are in the later stages, we will work with you directly to figure out how to best tackle your specific situations.
Additionally, we possess hundreds of case studies from top companies and analyze hundreds of recordings to help improve the quality of our coaches’ advice, career coaching approach, and class content.
Unless otherwise stated, all trainings, events, and coaching sessions are held in New York City at 1412 Broadway, 21st Floor on Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. This located is conveniently located right off the Times Square Subway Station.

The people who matter – hundreds of PMs that have successfully garnered more interviews than possible on their own.
If you opt into our course offering (one of many community benefits), they typically occur in 6-week sets. For each of these cohort classes, members can go ahead and start at the beginning, middle, or end of the cohort. Classes will always be free for in-person, live webinars, or recorded events and will always be accessible for the lifetime of the PG membership.
Once you join PG, you’re a member for life. You can choose to work with us all year from Day 1 or take a year off (or 5!) and return back into the process. We’re designed to value our members and totally align our goals.
We’ll be perfectly clear – we only want to work with people who are ready, willing, and able to become Product Managers or acquire their next product management job, and with people who are looking to ramp up and hit the ground running doing the interview process with us.
Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen a massive jump in people looking to break into product and a majority of them don’t come from a product background.
Ultimately, whether or not you are inexperienced or a 5 year, veteran PM, we look for three things:
2) Transferable skills
3) Urgency to interview and practice
Every member that has joined the Product Gym Community has received interviews. 100% of community members that follow our process (per our recommendation) have received offers. We do not include members that voluntarily leave our community, go on medical absences, leave for military duty, etc. into our placement rate.
Product Gym’s unique approach towards getting members the product job is designed to do two things:
1) Increase your number of interviews
2) Improve your ability to sell yourself once you land these interviews
It takes approximately 8-16 weeks for members to land a job using the Product Gym process – this requires that you follow our detailed guidelines and instructions every single week that you are enrolled in Product Gym.
Product Management is one of the most difficult titles in tech to acquire right now.
Most bootcamps sell courses around how to do the job – which is definitely a necessity. However, we are not a bootcamp and nor do we offer a singular course as our community benefits. Our community is designed to provide you with effective techniques and interview skills that will ultimately garner more interviews and vastly improve your in-person PM interviewing game.
