    Pros

    Really great place to work. Friendly and flexible owners. Flexible work schedule. Friendly members.

    Cons

    No real cons. Some health benefits as well as dental would definitely be a plus.

    Pros

    Community engaged. You really get the opportunity to build a relationship with clients. A very good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Pay is based on franchise owner and growth. It's really seasonally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guidance in overall company strategy in terms of marketing and sales would help. Was told to "figure it out" and had no business experience.

    I worked at Snap Fitness full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only pro is that you'll get a free gym membership out of the deal.

    Cons

    Horrible working environment based on power and fear. You'll constantly fear for your job security and be reminded about how many other people want your job, turnover rate is EXTREMELY high due to poor working conditions, public shaming, and bullying by upper management. An old standby quote from Steele Smiley "Watch out or you'll be buried in my backyard with all the other lazy marketers" among other highly unprofessional and inappropriate statements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat employees with respect and dignity.

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

    Pros

    As a trainer I had access to 800 members
    Clean facility
    Friendly staff and members
    Non intimidating gym
    State of the art equipment
    Flexible scheduling

    Cons

    --I only got paid for personal training sessions. Assessments, paperwork, generating and calling leads and light cleaning I was not paid for, but I helped out anyway.
    --The manager promised me floor hours where I would get paid to do all of that, but it never happened
    --I was not trained on how to sell PT so I struggled awhile getting clients, and management had no idea how to do it either.
    --No opportunity for advancement in the company
    --No benefits even if I was a full-time trainer, pay was decent though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn more about PT business to help your trainers succeed so you don't have such a high turnover rate.

    I don't feel as though I learned anything from this internship about marketing, but the gyms themselves are very nice.

    A lot of work for little pay.

    I worked at Snap Fitness

    Pros

    Great environment. Loved working with people and loved being able to expand my fitness career. I was kept busy all the time and that was good. Had an opportunity to clean up the place and make it more efficient.

    Cons

    Felt I was not paid enough for how much work I put in and given my past work experience. Because I had to clean up the entire back office, sales commissions were slow the first several months.

    I worked at Snap Fitness full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The environment is laid back and friendly. For the most part the job is enjoyable and can keep you motivated with your own fitness goals. There is usually a free membership involved

    Cons

    There is absolutely no benefits: sick leave, vacation time, insurance... As a manager you will have no authority at all. Managers have no say in schedules, hiring, pay scales, incentive programs, or any other areas usually associated with management. In fact they do not even have access to back of the house computer systems. They are a manager in name only and for the most part are nothing more than cleaning attendants and desk agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you are hiring a manager hire a manager and allow them to have the authority and position to be a manager.

    I have been working at Snap Fitness full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid base pay. Community-oriented. If you have a positive attitude and are good at sales and training, you can have a very successful career. Also, very laid back environment compared to larger gyms.

    Cons

    Not a ton of foot traffic / new potential clients in comparison to larger chain gyms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider lowering membership prices in certain areas to stay competitive where larger chain gyms are offering $10 - $20 / month.
