    I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free gym membership, discounted personal training, lots of learning, plenty of opportunities to move up and get promoted!

    Cons

    The pay isnt great.. even the managers don't get paid that well. Definitely think people put in more work and don't get paid enough for it!

    Advice to Management

    I work in service... it's great but it's constantly changing. We're being required to do more and more and more (now we're required to sell memberships, while doing our current job.). Don't we have membership counselors for that? It's hard to have one job, and be required to do other jobs as well.We definitely don't get paid enough to be taking over other people's jobs.

    I have been working at 24 Hour Fitness part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedule, free membership, instructors can use child-care while they're teaching class

    Cons

    I've been a part time Group-X instructor @ 24Hour for 7 years. About 4 years ago the company decided to go from in-house 24Hour-created classes to contracting with an outside company to provide all the class formats. Before the change, 24 provided instructor training to ALL of the Group-X instructors -and it was FREE (so we were regularly updated and refreshed on new formats). Now, you are expected to pay for your own training to the tune of $250/pop and then subscribe (via your own credit card) to the outside company (Les Mills, Powder Blue, Schwinn etc) to get updates another $40/quarter. Not OK.

    There has been tremendous turn-over in Group-X management. Over the last 4 years I've been through at least 7 supervisors & managers -- I didn't even know I had a new boss until I got a nasty email from one of them.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees (even the part time ones)!!!! Provide company-paid-for training and continuing education for ALL of your Group-X instructors -not just your favorites. And take a look at why you keep having so much turn-over in management. Obviously they're quitting for a reason.
