    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    free membership, fun atmosphere, meet cool people, promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    membership counselors have to exceed goals by 140% + in order to earn a decent paycheck. Even if you hit 100% of goal you still are barely making just over 8$/ hr. only full time employees with medical is management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All full time employees should be able to get health benefits not just management. this is a health club and any full time employee deserves medical. Dave Garfinkel has tunnel vision and is unable to take any feedback or suggestions. If it isn't his way or his idea then he wants nothing to do with it.

    Current Employee - Group Exercise Instructor in Antioch, CA

    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free membership to use the facilities, even if you work part time.

    Cons

    Mandatory meetings that are rushed through, including CPR re-certification where things are passed over quickly. Supervisor seems uncomfortable holding meetings & appears to just want to "get them over with."
    Customers repeated complaints about yoga classrooms not being warm are not taken care of or heat is increased temporarily and then A/C blasts the next week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take customer concerns more seriously. Come talk to the class yourself or call customers after receiving emailed complaint. Sit in on Group Exercise Instructor meetings and make suggestions for improvement to Supervisor.

    I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership for employees, which is a money saver. The staff is very friendly and easy to work with. Usually there is a lot of down time during the afternoons, so depending on what time your shift is, you can do other things (e.g. homework, if you are a student). Training is easy, and overall the job is not too hard.

    Cons

    Pay is low, with no raise, ever. Worked there for over two years without a single raise. You have to stand during your entire shift, and sometimes you are not allowed a break. Dealing with customers is horrible at times, especially for those trying to cancel memberships or sneak in to the club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more than one worker to the front desk. There should be at least 2 at all times.

    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs

    Pros

    Great facilities to sale. Potential growth within. Pleasant environment to work in. Members are great.

    Cons

    Way to political. Extremely clickish. Regional & District management in certain regions have no empathy for employee matters. Sr. Managers aren't on the same page all the time when delivering sales messages. Certain Regional & District managers don't come from Sales background so they're unknowledged on sales practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the owners Rob Farrens and Paul Rothbard, chose management wisely. Recommendations for these positions are kept within certain cliques. Certain District and Regional Managers are incompatent at their positions regarding sales. They should go through sales training as well.
