Fitness center managers who hope to maximize profits have long known that one of the best ways to attract new members is to use personal trainers as salespeople. Between workout sessions, trainers spend a significant amount of time giving free advice to prospective clients and offering tours of the facilities. Managers and trainers are happy with this arrangement, as it attracts new customers to the fitness center and provides low-stress, fully-paid rest time for the trainers.

Which of the following is best supported by the information above?

(A) The hourly cost of paying personal trainers to act as sales staff is less than the revenue generated by the increase in membership fees paid by the newer gym users.
B) Because the work of personal training offers such low pay for high-stress physical labor, trainers are only willing to exercise with clients for a specified number of hours per day.
(C) Fitness center managers have to put the interests of prospective clients above those of trainers, who would rather not work as salespeople.
(D) Most prospective gym members prefer not to talk to dedicated salespeople and would rather get free advice from a professional trainer than spend money on a gym membership.
(E) Each new membership that a gym earns generates enough revenue to cover the cost of paying a single trainer to give free tours and advice for that day.

Not able to induce OA from given Stem.

I was able to eliminate B, C and E. if Option A was - Paying personal trainers just as Sales Staff - then Option A would have made more sense to me.
