I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Staying young, being around active people

Cons

Unrealistic goals and ideals. Leadership teams asking/telling subordinates to do things they in fact could not do themselves or in fact have never done them. For example having a former CEO who brought in all of his employees from a failed company which he led. Not sure what the thought process was with that. Also deciding to take away commission from sales teams only contributed to the thinning out of substantial talent. Just one bad decision after another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go try and do some of the things you are asking the field team to do. Not to mention the grossly undervalued and under payed Service Managers. They are the back bone of the club yet they always get he short end of the stick while Cub Managers are glorified but do little to no work.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and atmosphere. Easy to stay healthy and focus on fitness!

    Cons

    During the liebert era there were to many managers that knew nothing about running health clubs! They don't stand up for their employee's or top producers. Their main focus is staying out of further litigation and cutting overhead to sell the company! Not in employee satisfaction or growth!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management, so my advice to get rid of the old management has already been accomplished!! Really hope the new investors can turn around the negative outlook of a lot of club managers in the company! That passion that I and so many of my co-workers and best friends has been lost due to stupid decisions by DM's and VP's! Poor leadership creates poor working environments! Would love to see this company go back to being the #1 health club in the USA again!!
