Pros

Clean area, high-end, good compensation

Cons

You are dealing with members who are celebrities, ceos, and other wealthy individuals. So you need to go above and beyond what is expected of you. If you don't you will be let go.

Advice to Management

Praise the lower staff a little more - especially if they handled a situation very well

    Pros

    - Best education anywhere. Reveals that most personal trainers have no idea what they're doing.
    - Excellent network of professionals - colleagues and members
    - Highly supportive and knowledgeable personal training managers

    Cons

    - 12+ hours / day, 5 or 6 days / week. There is great focus on getting to "full time" status of 21 sessions per week in order to increase your wage significantly. If you are new to training, doing this requires extended hours, many paid at minimum wage or not paid at all. You may often have clients spread out through the morning, afternoon and evening, which means that you are at the club through the entire day with many unpaid gaps in your schedule. The pay / session is better than other clubs but when you average it over the time you actually spend getting and maintaining clients and just being at the club the pay is diluted significantly. After 1+ years, it's easier to control your schedule and take time for yourself but the reality is that the extra activities to get more clients go on forever.
    - Approximately 75% of trainers are NOT "full-time". This reflects on how challenging it can be to get there and stay there. It's absolutely achievable, but takes great focus and dedication.

    Advice to Management

    - Show that you care about the personal training teams - we are a massive sales team that brings Equinox literally hundreds of millions of dollars. Policies are enforced that feel stifling yet there is no evidence of reaching out to find out how to support us.
