I have been working at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Equinox members are all high earners and can afford personal training. The in house education, compensation, and bonuses are second to none. This is one of few fitness companies that provides affordable health insurance, 401k and other benefits most trainers don't get.

Cons

If you're the best in the industry, you will earn more money than anywhere else, however, more than half of the trainers earn less than 50k per year.

Advice to Management

With recent expansion, management needs to focus on hiring and developing quality rather than quantity of trainers. We have an incredible reputation in the industry and want to keep it that way.

    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great people work here. It's the rockstars that make it work.

    Cons

    No leadership from the C level. The C level has the goals setup right, but doesn't know how to lead. The people doing to work as disconnected from the company's bottom line ideals.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage without micromanaging. You need to be able to help employees at all levels AND listen to their advice.

    "Shrouded in top of the line education and self reward, it's still a business to provide profits to the executives."

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

    Pros

    You have a chance to make your own schedule. Though this is some what limited due to needing to be available to clients. Productivity bonuses for doing lots of sessions. Decent health benefits.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to be recognized for anything other than productivity. Which translates to if you aren't a major contributor to revenue, then you might as well be a fly on the wall.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that people can be your biggest asset and provide more incentive for people to shine. Beautiful real-estate and the bottom line aren't the only things that matter.
