    Pros

    Love the people, all employees are fun healthy individuals - work life balance is great - positive work environment

    Cons

    Base salary is relatively low - not a lot of opportunity to grow unless you are willing to relocate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise base pay and you will retain hard working individuals - better benefits

    Former Employee - Massage Therapist in Palo Alto, CA
    Former Employee - Massage Therapist in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Equinox Fitness part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Being a former employee I was able to work with and learn skills and knowledge of how important fitness is. As a massage therapist, I worked with excellent and knowledgeable personal trainers that helped me expand my work for a more complete assessment and strategy.

    Cons

    Most members of the club come to workout and not visit the spa

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advertise the spa more to the public. This will attract more clients to the spa but also leave potential for new members of the club.
