    Pros

    The best from from working in Xsport is getting free membership.

    Cons

    The members are cool people but the management needs to do a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating good employees bad and I swear most of managers from there are fake and can't trust them

    Pros

    fitness oriented. big on getting members their results. you get promoted fast if you work harder than everyone else made 6 figures after 3 months on the job.

    Cons

    just like any fitness job you are working evenings and weekends

    Advice to Management

    solid regionals and area directors. middle management will always be hit or miss because they are often newly promoted.

    Pros

    Commission is good if you sell personal training. If you go out and make sure to bring the prospect with you to the club you'll get the sale. Free gym membership on top of it.

    Cons

    The employees steal your deals when your not looking. Generating outside leads is pointless if your managers take them from you. If you dont hit your daily quota your treated like scrap there. They put you in the midnight shift if your not favorited. Managerment plays favorites. HR department is a bigger joke.

    Advice to Management

    None. Look at other facilities.

  6. Very busy, very little structure, and incompetent management.

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good. Employees received a couple discounts on things. No problem getting supplements.

    Cons

    The hours required to be successful. Management choices. Negative morale and poor attitude toward others. Employees that were fired previously were brought back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Filter your GM's and AGM's a little more strictly. Find better ways to prevent theft, especially from the overnight staff.

    Pros

    Free membership. Decent schedule. Gained some close friends from working here.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. All commission you earn as a membership counseler gets taken from you by some type of crap deduction or another. Greedy owners/upper management, only care about more money in their pockets.

  8. A lot of work with very minimum compensation.

    Pros

    You have free access to the gym, management is pretty lax

    Cons

    Pay is minimum wage, work is very stressful and demanding at times, few perks as an employee. Work is pushed on to newer workers.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay, better organization, more responsibility divided between employees.

    Pros

    Great clients. Has possibilities if managed properly.

    Cons

    Poor management. Young management staff only concerned with making the numbers (their bonus). Over sell to regular clients to the point the stop coming. Overall, the entire gym was a free for all with no oversight.

    Pros

    great connections with members and ability to help with them with their fitness goals

    Cons

    commission checks are never accurate, and rarely ever properly fixed. The company seems to have a department dedicated to ensuring that you will get decommissioned on most of your deals. no work/life balance. two types of people: those that have to work their because of convictions, and those that want to work their because they enjoy fitness. not a good mix.

    Advice to Management

    compensate those who work hard for the company properly. many quality management and staff have left due to the inability of current management to operate. plenty of nepotism all around. hire qualified management with education, not street hustle.
