    I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are definitely the best part of the job. You basically are getting paid to hang out with your buddies, which is pretty amazing.

    Cons

    As a trainer the hours can really be spread out with a lot of down time. If you don't like ready or have another part time job it could be tough to stay focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the older employees like assets and not as just a regular employee. The turnover was ridiculous and some of it was due to lack of recognition.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The management team is easy to talk to and always looking for employee opinions.
    The members are passionate about the company and very friendly.
    There are many opportunities to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Can be a stressful environment when members become upset.
    I've been at work when members have made threats against employees and began fights on the workout floor where Personal Trainers had to escort them out of the building. Must be open minded to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not micromanage.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness

    Pros

    The management was balanced and good. They called for high standards.

    Cons

    There was a lot of turnover at my club. Trainers would come and go. Trainers would be brought on and leave during onboarding.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free membership to all gyms. Meeting new people and making friends. Fairly easy job.

    Cons

    Poor pay, no wiggle room for schedules, no growth, monotonous work day after day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be cautious of your workers feelings we can not fix everything for a customer and can't be in 2 spots at once.

    I worked at 24 Hour Fitness

    Pros

    It's better than min. Wage, and since you do so much work with no potential for a bonus or commission (or even credit fir your sales and numbers with phone calls, leads, etc) your bosses are nice and flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    You won't get full time hours as a membership counselor, you don't get commission or bonus. You're stuck at 10.25 and I make about 1200 at most a month and work my butt off. Mean while, all the credit for my numbers goes to my managers because none of the leads are entered under my name, making the phone calls, sales, and referrals, look like they achieved them not me. So that makes it hard to get noticed and move up. I've worked at other gyms and this is the worst money wise, however there is less pressure to achieve your numbers than there is with other companies such as LA Fitness, between the two I'd choose LA without question.
