    I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible schedule, free membership, instructors can use child-care while they're teaching class

    Cons

    I've been a part time Group-X instructor @ 24Hour for 7 years. About 4 years ago the company decided to go from in-house 24Hour-created classes to contracting with an outside company to provide all the class formats. Before the change, 24 provided instructor training to ALL of the Group-X instructors -and it was FREE (so we were regularly updated and refreshed on new formats). Now, you are expected to pay for your own training to the tune of $250/pop and then subscribe (via your own credit card) to the outside company (Les Mills, Powder Blue, Schwinn etc) to get updates another $40/quarter. Not OK.

    There has been tremendous turn-over in Group-X management. Over the last 4 years I've been through at least 7 supervisors & managers -- I didn't even know I had a new boss until I got a nasty email from one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees (even the part time ones)!!!! Provide company-paid-for training and continuing education for ALL of your Group-X instructors -not just your favorites. And take a look at why you keep having so much turn-over in management. Obviously they're quitting for a reason.

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

    Pros

    Large client base, some great managers, can lead a fit lifestyle while helping others get fit.

    Cons

    Too corporate, too much focus on the bottom line and not customer experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was some bad management that drove away a lot of talented people, but senior management finally caught it and put some great managers in their place. The process was very slow though and I would encourage them to move more quickly. But Andrew Feranti and Joey Jenkins as managers was one of the best decisions they could have made.
