I have been working at New York Sports Club part-time (More than a year)
Relaxed environment, great clients, respect of everyone in the gym, the potential for lots of friends and connections, make own hours within reason, good pay if you do enough sessions per month.
Lack of proper upper management to sell PT, company expects you to be an awesome trainer and do all your own selling which is unrealistic. If you are a trainer you shouldn't need to be a pro salesman. No pressure to get things done on time such as fix machines. Horrible computer software and system overall. Budgets restrict management's abilities to make the clubs very nice and keep them updated.
Advice to Management
Raise budget to allow all necessary equipment in the club, such as proper number of barbells. When you have 10 stations that require a barbell in your club and you only have 5 barbells and an equipment budget of $250 a month, you're going to have a bad club!
I applied online. I interviewed at New York Sports Club.
it was like a regular conversation. it went smoothly. asked simple questions and trying to get to know me and what was put on my resume. after interview mandatory references must be given to be hired.
