    I worked at Equinox Fitness full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free gym membership, cool coworkers

    Cons

    Black out days at the end of the month, upper management is cold and will drive you crazy they only care about "hitting". I worked on long island for 3 years as shop manager and nearly lost my mind in the end. They would email at 3am and expect a response?!

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

    Pros

    membership kinda. Many staff members were great people.

    Cons

    vulgar managers, abusive workplace. Managers sleeping with managers and staff. Regional manages sleeping with club level managers. Vulgar language in the workplace constantly. It was an awful work experience. I have worked for a few different fitness companies and I was left shocked by the horrible unprofessional behavior., bully tactics, and frankly awful human beings.

    There are many reviews that say "great place to work!" and so on, AVOID EQUINOX. You have been warned! those positive reviews are made by the company to try and make a positive spin on a horrible place. There are MANY better places to work in the NYC area.

    DO NOT waste your time, effort, and energy with this place.

    Advice to Management

    When a senior manager sleeps with someone, fire them. Dont sweep it under the rug, just fire them. Show your regional managers that they can get in trouble just like anyone else for unprofessional behavior. Club managers shouldn't be allowed to sleep with department managers and keep their jobs. Regional managers shouldnt be able to be nasty and vulgar and keep their jobs. You expect a lot from your employees but give your senior managers a license to kill without any consequence. The abusive workplace environment must stop.
