    I worked at Blink Fitness

    Pros

    Friendly members and employees. Good atmosphere, love how blink is able to hold true to fitness for everybody, welcoming all.

    Cons

    At first it was amazing, then you see how undervalued and underpaid you are. No matter the amount of work you put in, they always find something to complain about. The Area manager I had only look out for themself and never backed you up, always pointing fingers.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of being childish and taking personal routes, base your business off of merit.

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Personal Trainer in Selden, NY

    I have been working at Blink Fitness part-time for less 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.

        Controlling area managers that are unchecked in their behavior, incompetent at leading, show blatant favoritism and are insecure to the point of putting others down.
