    Pros

    The gym was nice. Good machines and equipment.

    Cons

    I was forced to push supplements to people that don't need it. Many are just pure crap. Management only worried about numbers and there's a lot of favoritism. They also hired a lot of trainers that have questionable backgrounds. I know that those of us with more education weren't very satisfied with this place. I lasted a bit longer than many of them, but I was only doing it as a side job for fun.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about numbers and focus on your staff and members first.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and quality training equipment. You can personalize your training style to how you like to train and not stuck to a cookie cutter training style.

    Cons

    Many managers can be very "toxic" for the lower staff. Instead of training helping trainers that need help they are to busy worrying about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the team and not the numbers. You grow your team and the numbers will follow. If you just sit there and complain about making your quota, you will not advance your team and the same problems will persist.

    Pros

    nice room to teach in and a wonderful Boss ...Kendell hogan who treats his workers with honesty and trust and honesty..

    Cons

    There is no growth available at these clubs. When there is they would rahter put in someone who they can pay nothing to rather than an experienced worker. They have been bought out several times and each time they fell in Market Share and Brand

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and have the New York office know whats really going on on the west coast. Take better care of the employees that you have and get to your gyms and studios more often..

    Pros

    Fair pay, some great talent in management, great place to get started if you've never had experience in the fitness industry.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between management and employees, not a lot of formal training, at times you will be doing the jobs of the upper management. Unprofessional behavior on multiple counts.

    Advice to Management

    Get professional. Have a more unified system of training for employees for better retention. Stop harassing employees simply because you do not like that they are not best friends with you. Specifically geared towards the franchise.

    Pros

    - free membership - Meet new people

    Cons

    -Salary is minimum wage - you have to push sales when you don't get incentives as a front desk employee I have issues with the way eregular employees talk to new employees. I even had an employee that was talk to me in a demeaning tone while I was helping clients.

    Advice to Management

    I noticed some of the management is focused on picking up (flirting with clients) They tell you no cell phones On the floor but they will be on their cell phone from time to time. Management: Lead by example and learn how to talk to your employees. I also noticed the way things were handled with a management member and an employee was not professional. They were arguing in front of customers and that gives a bad vibe.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Use of all gyms for free. Laid back environment. Friendly members.

    Cons

    Extremely high tunover rate in every dept. Incompetent management. A company that breeds insecurity in staff. Extremely money driven - which takes away from "helping people". Shady practices. Blatant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Everything that you've learned, do the opposite, if you want a lower turnover.

    Pros

    Fitness, get to use the gym, some co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    Management thinks you work for free. Management doesn't know their head from their butt and has never ever been or seen the inside of a gym before. Management encourages non-team spirit atmosphere, and lack of support from hire ups and management.

    Advice to Management

    Work in the gym and use the gym facilities to know and understand how the fitness industry works and grow a conscious.
