    I worked at Club One (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good clientele and not a whole lot of oversight on what you do with clients. fairly collaborative with knowledge. Made lasting friends and clients.

    Cons

    No raises in 5 years, upward mobility limited. Lots of turnover in management but that does not really affect the front line staff that works on commission.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure you want to be a manager, the lifespan of a fitness manager is short. Otherwise support your trainers and share knowledge. Money driven managers don't last, but those that care about training people and making connections with the members fair much better and the trainers will work harder for you.

    Working in the fitness industry was great and every team has a great leader. Its important to find those people and collaborate if you want to get ahead.

    I have been working at Club One full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are doing their best in a tough market -- still shying away from the preditorial nature of some of the lower end gyms.

    Cons

    Losing share to Fitness SF and other gyms. Changes in the personal training market has eroded Club One's margins.

    Advice to Management

    Consider some creative ways to stay relevant without stretching the brand too thin or resorting to lowbrow tactics.

    I worked at Club One full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Club One tends to promote from within, so if you are a hard-working, dedicated employee they recognize that and give you opportunities to expand your knowledge in the health and fitness industry. The company has been sold to it's original founders and is now called "Active Sports".

    Cons

    Lack of communication from the corporate office made it difficult to feel supported.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate constantly with your employees to help them feel more supported

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunity to affect people's lifestyles and build relationships.

    Cons

    Company fell on difficult financial times.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in the trenches to identify staff obstacles to success. Cut the fat from the very top of the executive chain. Reward those controlling costs than just those generating revenue.
