    Current Employee - Studio Manager in Greenwich, CT

    Pros

    - Great compensation
    - Accommodating owners
    - Great concept
    - Very organized system
    - The system in place to provide clients value/results is a league above what you see in most health clubs

    Cons

    - Long hours. If you'd like to provide quality and service you must be there for all clients who ask for help. Being a Studio Manager is not for someone who wants a part-time job.

    Management was incompetent and uneducated, but the owner is a true blue salesman.

    Pros

    Great community with wonderful clients to build relationships with.

    Cons

    The model of the franchise does not allow the trainer to do the physical assessments for the clients and this can present an opportunity for injury. The manager does that and gives little information to support the trainer in creating a program.
    The management wants the trainer to randomly increase the speed on clients cardio not knowing their health conditions based on one thing: "That's the way we do it here. This is the future of training." Thankfully he is incorrect.
    Agreements initially made when hired by the owners were not kept and so get everything in writing.
    If "image" matters to you, know that management is more glib than chic.
    The owner hires you and you never hear from him again. It will be you and the manager. If you are stuck working with an incompetent manager that's a huge problem, and it becomes your problem.
    No camaraderie.
    No support.
    If it's possible work in a "fun-less" this is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Owner: Don't choose you locations by the wealth of an area, match them to your mentality
    and "middle-management" thinking.
