I worked at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Free club membership for employees, with modern equipment to "get fit."

Cons

If your not a "decision-maker" your just another face in the crowd.

Advice to Management

Recognize where your successes originates from.

    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Free membership to use the facilities, even if you work part time.

    Cons

    Mandatory meetings that are rushed through, including CPR re-certification where things are passed over quickly. Supervisor seems uncomfortable holding meetings & appears to just want to "get them over with."
    Customers repeated complaints about yoga classrooms not being warm are not taken care of or heat is increased temporarily and then A/C blasts the next week.

    Advice to Management

    Take customer concerns more seriously. Come talk to the class yourself or call customers after receiving emailed complaint. Sit in on Group Exercise Instructor meetings and make suggestions for improvement to Supervisor.

    I have been working at In-Shape Health Clubs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gym membership, work environment, and members

    Cons

    Membership Counselor (MC) pay structure is below poverty. The information in the “salary tab” on this website is incorrect. They pay $8.00 hourly or commission whichever is more. In-Shape (IS) manipulates the system so they do not have to provide medical benefits to full-time employees by keeping their hours work lower than 40 hrs. Too much work to complete within an 8 hour day if you are producing. Employees will be written up if they do not clock out within 8 hours. Nevertheless, they are expected to work on their “own time” to complete paperwork before they can leave for the day. Otherwise they will be punished by way of getting yelled at or being setup for production failure one way or another the next working day or week. Upper management is never satisfied if a team is doing well, instead they find something else that needs to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    I can continue with many more cons, but there is a minimum word count. The company itself needs a new up dated corproate business structure. The payroll department needs an overhaul. There is no reason for employees to have to do extra work by keeping personal records and having to prove their sales in order to be paid the correct amount due on each paycheck.
