This study aims to examine the effect of work-life quality on women trainers’ turnover intentions in fitness centers. Data were collected from fitness centers for women in metropolitan cities in the western part of Turkey. 243 women fitness trainers participated in the study voluntarily. The work-life quality scale developed by Chen and Farh (2000) and the turnover intention scale developed by Landau and Hammer (1986) were used as data collection tools. Hierarchical regression analysis was used to determine the effect of worklife quality on turnover intention. The analysis showed that the quality of work-life in the fitness centers for women affected the turnover intention of women fitness trainers significantly and negatively (β=-0.358; p<0.01). As a result, this study suggests that organizations should increase the quality of work-life to reduce employee turnover intention.
