    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the learning and development aspect of what we do. Keep on it!

    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None, the excitement that I had once has for this industry was drained from an emotional vampire (TSI). What a shame that this company continues to he away with what it does. I must believe that at some point karma will catch up to them!

    Cons

    Everything; from the lie that is stated in their mission statement. To the lies it feeds it clientele. There is no coaching nor development. TSI does not invest in their employees!

    I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free gym membership, hours of operation, friendly members and staff, this company has turned from something that awesome four years ago to somewhere that is heading downhill fast.

    Cons

    Low pay, unclean, equipment constantly broke, rules only apply to certain employees, management is not much of assistance, always looking to cut back programs, big decline in membership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to the way it was 4 years ago, the company cared about it's employees at that time.

    Fun, mostly friendly, easy going enviroment

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There'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...

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Leave 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...

    I worked at New York Sports Club full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free membership and learned that I would never want to work in a pushy sales role such as a membership advisor ever again. They call their style "value selling" but really it's vicious, pushy and most times rude.

    Cons

    Pay, management, lack of employee empowerment, lack of professionalism, comical amount of employees who do not even attempt to do their jobs, quite often filthy working conditions and in general the largest con was the time wasted.
