Description

Product Gym offers a six-week part-time product management bootcamp in New York City. The program is aimed at professionals seeking to boost their careers or transition into a product management role. The Product Gym’s part-time course offers product management training catered at individuals at least three years of experience in the industry. Classes are led by career product managers, engineers, data scientists, designers, marketers, and recruiters. Students have access to career talks and other industry-related services to assist with career placement after graduation. Product Gym is over ten years old, and its cohort classes started in 2018.

Additional Info

The product management curriculum at the Product Gym is comprehensive. Students begin by going over the fundamentals of product management, including product development lifecycle. This includes the timeline between the release of the product, maintenance, product roadmaps, and analysis of business and markets. Students will also learn the process of prototyping, including wireframing and building stakeholder consensus. Upon graduation, students are expected to create a product roadmap from scratch (including MVP) and demonstrate an understanding of the coding languages used to build their technology product.  Students in this program will have a technology-centered curriculum, as the bootcamp is specifically catered for a career in the tech industry. Students will bring their unique professional experience to the program and collaborate with other students during the process to formulate their product roadmap and MVP.  

Classes take place on Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 6:30 PM. This part-time program takes place in-person at 1412 Broadway (on the 21st floor) in New York City. The Product Gym course runs for six weeks total, and the part-time schedule allows professionals to continue working while attending the course. Students can also attend courses and coaching sessions online via the live stream or recorded sessions. The total amount of time spent in the classroom is around 40 hours, distributed evenly across six weeks.

The Product Gym does not publish job placement statistics. However, they do specify that the average salary of product managers is $111,213 per year, according to Glassdoor. The program aims to train students to pursue a product management career. The Product Gym’s website details the career transitions of several students, who come from various professional backgrounds both inside and outside of the tech industry.

The six-week product management program at the Product Gym costs $3,500 upfront. At this time, income share agreements and financing plans are not available through the course, but students can seek tuition assistance from third-party organizations. Scholarships are not available—upfront payment is the only option at this time. The price of tuition fully covers the program, including material costs.

    It’s amazing that this stuff isn’t taught in school
    I took this course on recommendation of two people that had taken this before. I was HIGHLY skeptical of the information during the info session I attended. Especially when they were touting 20+ interviews a week. I’ve been a PM before and wasn’t nearly getting that. I also was confused about what I was actually buying. Is this interview coaching or is this a class on PM?

    The answer I learned is both. The PM classes are taught by people that do the actual work they teach, data scientist teaches data science, engineers teach engineering etc. And then Rich, Cody and RK do the coaching parallel to the program…and it was problematic for me because nothing they told me made any sense… Until I really got more interviews than I could handle. I did more interviews in a two week span than I had done in the 10+ years I was out of school. And I learned their coaching is a direct response to the recruiting industry and all its inherent biases. You learn exactly, and I mean exactly – down to the word – how to take advantage of this information asymmetry to use to your benefit through PG.

    This program requires a little bit of blind faith, no doubt. Where these people shine is that they care about the results. And it shows–another review said how the PG is a bit unrefined and unprofessional. It’s true. They don’t have the fancy template slides, the nice projectors, their email and messages sound like a drill sergeant more than a coach. Rich said it best tho. You’re not signing up for Product Spa. It’s a gym. It gets grimey. And the gains you make are on you. You need to push the weights. Otherwise, why bother paying.

    I had a few people in my cohort that took Product School which I was also considering, but I ultimately felt that Product School wouldn’t actually be able to get me a job. I didn’t have confidence that they knew what they were talking about about job acquisition. This was confirmed by the people in my Product Gym cohort. Alot I’d general information but nothing that could be used tactically or what I didn’t already know.

    For an already seasoned PM like me, what made me join was actually hearing the students in the cohort talk about their interview experience. These were people with almost no product manager title but got more interviews and rounds than myself. I found that slightly insulting and frankly jealous. For me, these people were taking opportunities away from me but I quickly learned that the program teaches you, forces you to start talking like a PM. I slowly learned how to articulate my experiences in ways that other people could understand and digest. I learned that a first round recruiter call is different than a hiring manager and you have to tailor your pitch to them.

    I highly recommend this course to people that are serious about getting the job, whether you have PM experience or not. Just be prepared for the work and their harsh process.

    Rich has great advice and tons of helpful resources.

    He definitely knows what he is talking about and has successfully pushed people through this process many times.

    If you are on the fence, his ability to help negotiate your offer will essentially cover the cost of the course.

    I first met Richard when I joined a Product Management Resume Building webinar a few weeks prior. I quite honestly had very little expectations about the seminar, but was pleasantly surprised with how much guidance I received from Richard in that one-hour session. Subsequently, we also were able to set up a 30-minute consult to discuss our resume and LinkedIn profiles in more depth (as part of the webinar). Yet again, I went in anticipating that I’d receive a few nuggets of knowledge at best. But… that was far from what actually happened. Not only was I provided a WEALTH of information in that Zoom chat, I also received an astounding amount of tangible data and feedback that I can act on. Say that to say, that I am appreciative of the content that Richard and the Product Gym team have curated, and I highly suggest that anyone on the PM job hun consider it to give you that extra UMPF across the finish line!

    Let me tell you something you don’t want to do this job search during Q4. I am going to give it to you bluntly. DON’T JOIN THIS PROGRAM UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE A PRODUCT MANAGER, UNLESS THIS IS WHAT YOU FEEL IS YOUR DESTINY. The process is very simple, clear, and straightforward. Come prepared, pay attention, do the work, and get ready to be pushed. There is no way for ego here. There is no room for doubt, because the people that come to Product Gym are about one life and that is GET A PRODUCT MANAGER JOB OR DIE TRYING. Thank god for me, I got the job and didn’t die. You have to be about this life. I don’t understand people that say this is their passion and this is their dream, but don’t do the work. Bring your A game and you will be fine.

    I come from banking as the title suggest and I can tell you that I am doing great right now. I am crushing the job. “Crushing It” is a term we love to use at PG and I am feeling just that, as if I have control over what I am doing. Product Gym is viciously effective in helping you get the job. Don’t worry if you ARE accepted into the program, you will be fine so as long as you do the work.

    My first 30 days on the job, I was crushed though. That time was tough, but I recall I didn’t do so well my first 30 days in banking, college, or anything else I did for the first time. You will make mistakes and that’s okay. I made tons and you know what its fine here. Most people carry with them the baggage they had from their previous careers thinking product is going to be like that, but its not and that’s why you were drawn to the experience anyways. Stop thinking you need to know everything and just trust the process. Take it from me; it took me 8 months to land this job, but I know I could have done it earlier if I wasn’t getting in my own way all the time.
