    Growth and opportunity

    Fitness Services Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI started at NYSC as a new trainer looking to find a job I enjoyed - That was 8 years ago. Now, I have fun career as a Fitness manager at a successful club in NYC. I owe great thanks to the learning & development program, and the leadership team the company has developed. Through that my careerI has grown beyond my early expectations. They really do a solid job of setting high expectations but giving you the tools to achieve them. Great team support, financially rewarding, and a quick track to management.

    ConsIt's really up to you - If you want to be successful they will show you the way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLove the learning and development aspect of what we do. Keep on it!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Experience

    Personal Trainer (Former Employee)
    Dobbs Ferry, NY

    ProsTwo Words: Billy Goda. Best leader I have ever worked for and I learned a tremendous amount from him. If you are interested in being a personal trainer, this is the place to go. You have to be willing to put in the work and listen! Billy helps place on the right career path and gives you the tools and knowledge you need to succeed along the way. This is a great team to be a part of as you are surrounded by friendly co-workers and in a positive working environment. I would recommend the NYSC in Dobbs Ferry to any trainer that is willing to learn and put in the work.

    ConsNot a great source of income in the early stages, so you need to build your business right away!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun, mostly friendly, easy going enviroment

    Front Desk Associate (Current Employee)
    Jersey City, NJ

    ProsThere's really no horrible reason not to work here. It's the most stress free environment I've worked in and that's after working as a retail associate and an assistant in higher education. Just if only the pay was above minimum wage...

    ConsSome times members can give you a bit of a hassle trying to get their way but you stick to guns about the rules with everyone. Just if only the pay was above minimum wage...

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave GM's some breathing room to get the "small" things their employees need from them...and that's true from all clubs in my area. Raise the pay above minimum wage...
