I worked at Bally Total Fitness

Pros

great co-workers,
members are always fun.
nice atmosphere.

You're only as good as your last month of sales.
If you're not good at sales don't bother with Ballys

Pride yourselves on more than signing people up.

    Get your foot in the door to the PT industry, but forget about a lucrative career with BTF.

    I have been working at Bally Total Fitness

    Pros

    The People are great, The Staff is outstanding. I will admidt that other gyms have far newer and more modern equipment but nothing beats a true gym

    Cons

    The equipment is not up to date, the Management is not very well informed of the regulations and benefits. Short hours and under staffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at new equipment, read up on procedures, hire from within.
    stop making express gyms we like working out late when we get off of work

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
