    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best education and training for personal trainers! No other company offers the knowledge and exposure that Equinox does. Also, best pay ever for personal trainers. You can make a killing at Equinox if you are a full time trainer, in other words, doing around 100 sessions a months. Not to mention the Training Team is amazing. Great culture and brotherhood.

    Cons

    100% commission job. Lead allocation is never reliable. Favoritism thrives and some trainers get way more leads than most other trainers. Also, your hustel has to be huge to acquire full time status. In other words, expect to work 10 to 12 hour days 6 days a week. Also, the worst benefits ever, virtually no benefits. Although the Training Team is amazing, the general team and membership advisors need to get on the same page, it could be a hot mess at times.

    Advice to Management

    Appropriate lead distribution and eliminate favoritism. Also, the entire team needs to be all together united on the same page with strong culture.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Equinox Fitness (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    After a successful phone interview, I met with 3 different club managers and had the opportunity to speak with the Regional manager as well. All were extremely personable and welcoming. All spoke to the club's culture, inclusivity, the need for hustle and the team work ethic.

    Inside the Top-Secret Gym for The Super Fit (and Super Rich)

    What do we expect from a gym in 2016? Scented towels? Fancy grooming products? How about a retina scanner at the door? For the right (high) price, Equinox will give you all of that-but it wants a chunk of your soul, too. Carrie Battan reports on how Equinox turned sweating into a spiritual quest.
