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

    Pros

    You can easily move within the company if you put in the effort. Blink is still relatively small and it's structure is still being built. They also cater to the communities in which they are located in. You do get a complimentary membership and they offer your typical medical, dental and vision benefits. 401k too.

    Cons

    If this is your sole responsibility, it can be an awesome path to take. For someone like me, being told I have to work a specific schedule with set days as a manager is discouraging. I value having a decent work/life balance and I am not one to be only about my job. The needs of the business should be specific to each club because every demographic is different. The rate of pay is bare minimum but the expectations...

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about all expectations when interviewing. Emphasis should be placed on the importance of personal training and member sales because that is something that can literally make or break your career with blink. Also communication should be consistent. It isn't fair for those of us in operations to just be given blanket information on how to do things but also get corrected when such procedures aren't performed correctly...

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Blink Fitness full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Fun work environment with the right leadership in place but that varies from location to location unfortunately. Opportunities for growth if you go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, training, and development. Prepare to be the scapegoat if under an incompetent area manager. Weirdly competitive. No support. A lot of responsibilities for very poor compensation. Pay is hourly and punching in and out can only be done in club, so work performed outside of the gym goes unpaid.

        I have been working at Blink Fitness full-time

        Pros

        Worked and met with many different people who could possibly help you with other life endeavors.

        Cons

        Hard to hit hour clients. You’d have to get many half hour clients to get good pay.

        Advice to Management

        Sell more hour packages

        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...
