    I have been working at Blink Fitness part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great Management Team that works with you to build clientele and retain them. Coworkers on the whole seem to genuinely care about member base. State of the art equipment that gets fixed quickly if it goes down.

    Cons

    Need improvement with the computer program and check ins with clients. Otherwise it's a great place to work as a trainer just starting out or a veteran trainer in the industry for years like myself

    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Selden, NY

    I have been working at Blink Fitness part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great staff, members are friendly, facility is well-maintained

    Cons

    Club volume is much less than other Blink clubs, so finding potential clients is more difficult. Per session compensation rate (50%) is pretty fair, but until you build your client list, it is not a sustainable living wage.

    Advice to Management

    Become more creative on how to bring new and existing clients to the space to generate more income potential for trainers. Consider group training classes and market as such.

        I have been working at Blink Fitness

        Pros

        Good clients, great staff to work with, friendly members, free gym membership. Flexible scheduling

        Cons

        You’ll get out of it what you put in, and you only get paid based on how many clients you train. Even then, you’d have to live at the gym in order to make a living. Every time you don’t meet certain goals set forth by management, (start up sessions, clients trained per week/month, etc) they scold you and doesn’t offer any helpful advice to get to those goals. Regardless of your job title, you’re expected to do way more...

        Advice to Management

        Where do I start? 1.) Take care of your employees! A lot of the front desk associates and maintenance workers work extremely hard at the gym, with little to no recognition by club managers or upper management. Pay all of your employees better, specifically your trainers- they’re the only ones who are generating extra revenue for the club. 2.) Communicate! Keep your employees informed on what’s going on. There tends to...

        Pros

        Flexible schedule Yearly bonuses Positive environment Free workout Social networking

        Cons

        Group-think, if you don't share the same interests as the staff, it can make your time with the company very uncomfortable,; that is unless, you move to a new location within the company.
