    Negative Outlook

    I worked at New York Sports Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free access to the gyms, free shirt as part of the uniform, somewhat flexible houra

    Cons

    Front line employees who do all the work dont matter. Employee turn over rate is very high because most people are under paid. Hiring standards are low and a bunch of degenerates get hired. Staff consists of a mix of teens and middle aged excon-like characters

    Advice to Management

    Increase hiring standards, raise wages, and at least try to train the employees


  2. "Good starting point for experience and learning to build your business as a personal trainer"

    I have been working at New York Sports Club full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment, friendly coworkers and gym members, free gym membership to all New York Sports Clubs.

    Cons

    Can be a little slow for new personal trainers, in terms of getting clients. Pay isn't so great when working floor hours. The only way to make good money is to train clients.

    Advice to Management

    Not to have new floor trainers with so many floor hours, and no clients to train.
