Former Employee - Group Fitness Instructor in San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Group Fitness Instructor in San Francisco, CA

I worked at Club One part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Free membership
Lots of locations
Variety of instructors

Cons

Absolutely horrible management. The current SF group fitness director is the worst I've ever seen.
They tried to have no group fitness manager for about a year, and the new one, RG, is worse than no one. There's no support at all.
Horrendous Equipment. As mics break, they just buy terrible ones.
The clubs are getting old and worn out.
Get the best starting salary you can: it's never raised.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your best instructors are leaving over the terrible management of the place.

    I worked at Club One full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Positive work environment and fun staff. Management are approachable. Nice clubs and safety is taken very seriously. This company has a very skilled HR department and labor laws and considerations are taken very seriously. There are opportunities to advance for employees that are eager to learn and apply themselves. This company allows you to think outside of the box and come up with great ideas. Some of the best management skills I learned were gained while being employed with Club One. Club One is very flexible with school and family schedules. They believe that if you are happy in your personal life, you will be happy at work. This can be the most valuable part of working with Club One, because many other companies do not care.

    Cons

    Low pay for employees and no raises, unless you promote. There is a strong disconnect with the corporate office and club level. Corporate often creates rules/promotions that just don't work on the club level. Employees also are hardly ever given recognition for hard work and/or achievements. Besides health benefits for full time employees, there are no other perks or incentives offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees. Corporate: spend more time at the clubs to find out what really works and what doesn't for each demographic.
