Pros

Very flexible and it's great seeing people making positive changes in their lives.

Cons

Not all of the financial stuff is handled well and members complain a lot. It isn't for the weak of heart.

Advice to Management

Prepare staff for possible confrontations/ problems and how to solve them .

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Motivate people towards fitness goals; observe fitness goals acheived; free membership at clubs;
    opportunity for advancement within; education on changing negative outlook to positive.

    Cons

    Long hours; no work life balance; perform consistently regardless of extenuating circumstances;(ie: no staff) vacation times only during specific times of the year; different policies across the board depending on senior management; little concern for employees with children; 50 hr. work weeks; most management very young and inexperienced in real world issues. Management has no supervision; thus come and go as they please. Personal trainers are not paid unless training a member; doing free assessments until a member purchases a training package.

    Advice to Management

    Create reasonable shifts for management/sales staff. Pay trainers if they are working. Hold
    2 sales meetings a day for reasonable shifts so mgmt. isn't there day and night. Have a manager
    at the club start later in day to stay through the night to aid other staff during peak hours so they are
    not left alone. Have policies with solutions; not just policies with textbook answers that don't apply.
    Work/life balance. 50/55 hours a week to be successful is for people with no other responsibilities.
